SBC - Engine dies after hard acceleration

I'm hoping someone will have an easy fix for me with this one. I finished putting the engine back together and dropped it in the Cutlass (83). It is a 350 SBC, 30 over, Summit K1106 cam, '80-something 305 heads, Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake and 1411 carb, 2800 RPM stall converter in front of a TH350. I've got the engine idling smoothly and pulling pretty strongly. However, it is still stalling sometimes as I come off of a hard acceleration. Does anyone have any insights into what might be causing this? Do I need to go through the carb and clean it again? Anything else I should be looking for?
