Hello all so I finally finished building my motor and installing my th350. My motor is stock 4 bolt bottom end with flat top pistons with 4cc valve reliefs 2.02 fuelie heads with manly stainless valves harland sharp roller rockers comp camp spring comp cam xe268h cam edelbrock rm performer intake holley 750 vacuum secondaries. Now my issue is its breaking up at full throttle and plugs look alittle lean. I'll try to post pics of the plugs. My ignition system is a mad street fire with jegs 8mm wires and ngk yr5 plugs gapped to 35. And 12 degrees initial timing. I replace the ignition module with a stock head replacement if that matter. If anyone can help or needs any more info please ask thank you.

Cylinder 4 far right cylinder 3 far left and cylinder 7 in the center

Your problem might be remedied with slightly larger secondary jets. Try a set of AC Delco 44's.

I did rejet the carb it has 72 mains and 76 secondaries I swapped the 76 into the main and 80s into the secondaries. It got worse. So I swapped my edelbrock that needs a rebuild back on it to se if it runs better. And it does so I'm gonna rebuild the edelbrock and see how she runs and re check the plugs after running it for alittle and see what the plugs have to say
