i think the power valve in my holley is bad.....runs a little rough except when into the throttle hard, the it clears out and is fine but light accel and idle i can feel it being a little rough.

Check your float level, too high will cause that. Big screw on front or side of bowl. Remove it and with car running, fuel should just trickle out. And I mean just trickle, barely get wet around hole.

So i figured out what was wrong with my car and i'm a dumbass. One of the new plugs i installed had the gap pinched closed. She runs alot better now.

Strange thing is that it didn't run like it had a dead miss. But whateverm better now.

Still looking for someone to help with the holley tuning though.
