Post stumbling on acceleration problem

I have a 67 camaro with a 350 with edelbrock performer carb and intake. Its going through a TH350 and into a 10 bolt with 3.08's. My problem is that when i am stopped and i floor the throttle (in drive or in first) it makes a kind of stumbly noise. Its a low noise that sounds low rpm and doesnt get the car going too well. is this result of the gears, a transmission problem, or maybe a problem with how the carb is set up. any suggestions are aprreciated. Also, when i swithced from 15x10 BFGs in the back to 15x7 BFG's i cant spin them anymore. whats going on?! thanks.

Your discription leads me to believe you have a carburetor adjustment issue. The Edelbrock AFB is jetted richer than the Carter out of the plant, and the secoundaries are to lean, which can lead to a bog.
1. Set your total ignition timing to 36 degrees @ 2000 RPM.
2. Check your pump squirter position for maximum dose.
3. Also, pull the top off the carb and double-check the float level, this is the #1 cause of problems with the AFB carb.

By the way, what size of carb did you put on it?
