i have a 67 327. performer rpm intake and 600 edelbrock carb. In the morining sometimes when i step on the gas it totally boggs out. Like it is going to stall or something. It doesnt do it any other time of the day. I was wondering if anyone knew what was going on?

Are you stomping on it when the engine is cold? Even with a pefectly operating choke, most engines cant stand that big shot of fuel until they at least warm up a bit. Besides, frogging the engine when it is cold is brutal on parts...and not just engine parts.

no i am not stomping on it at all. It does it when i give it a regular amount of gas. I have to end up flooring it to get the car to go.

Just checking...every time I see someone hammer on a cold engine it just makes me cringe. Does your carb have a choke? I am running a 600 edel also and do not use the choke...I also have no heat x-over in the intake (vortec heads) so it is a little doggy until the engine warms up a bit.
