vacuum issue or carb issue idk for sure

i just bought a 1979 el camino with a 350 small block. Edelbrock Performer 2101 intake, Edelbrock 1406 carb. runs good. problem is a major hesitation from idle. when i pin it to the floor from an idle it just spits at me then slowly increases rpm. mid range and high range rpm pull. But the low end refuses to work like i want it to. I know i should be able to pin it and smoke the tires in a peel out but it will barely make them chirp. any advice on how exactly to tune this carb or adress this vacuum issue would be greatly appreciated.
