Make sure the advance curve provides good advance at idle. Try running vac advance to full vaccum at idle, not ported spark.
If you are turning full lock all the way, the engine should slow down then.

guys the vaccum advance is getting full vaccum at idle i have it coming off of the base plate of the carb.if the header was against the power steering box would this cause a problem.it seems to be doing it about 3/4 the way through the turn .thanks jeff
