sounds like you need to play with the squirter if it is too big or too little it will hesitate when you get into the gas. Just put a Holley 7884 on an 87 s-10 we race it had a 25 squirter had to go to a 37 to get throttle responce right. The squirter is located in the top of the carb and is where the gas squirts out when you push down on the accelarator pump arm you can buy different sizes at auto parts store. Also make sure accelator pump is adjusted right, any movement of the throttle shaft should have the squirter spraying gas if not adjust it.
