When passing or on WOT I will have a slight fuel order nothing that chokes me out but it's there. While cruising no issues. My engine in timed at 12 degrees idle parked 950 -1000 . I have a little higher lift cam than stock. Drive idle sets about 800. Mercury on my guage is steady at 21.5. Very smooth idle.Could my secondaries be a little to large? 1406 maybe a little big for sbc 307.I'm not sure what jets are installed now or could it be something as simple a plugs in fire wall need replacing mine are gone.

Any ideas are helpful thank you.

Based on any openings in your fire wall, the use of an open air cleaner element, to some extent this could be normal
