I have an edelbrock I run at 2psi... it has larger needles but it doesn't take much pressure. I'm willing to bet one of the idle circuts is now clean and the other is still clogged- if you don't have a vacuum leak. The idle air bleeds on the boosters always gave me problems and id start there. For revving up from idle try moving your accelerator pump rod into the hole closest to the pump, this will supply the most fuel when you hit the throttle.
