Purty black smoke with a little extra gas. No black smoke at idle. I am having some timing issues so this could be it. I just know I have had the same issue with this Holley before.

Make sure you get the timing right first then go from there. It sounds like it is retarded. I always recommend and advance curve kit most stock curves are way to slow. A simple kit will make a world of difference in how a car runs.

Oger, how can you say the man's car is retarded? It is a Camaro.

If you run a Holley carb, it could be a blown power valve - especially if it popped back through the carb because of a timing problem.
