Need help with a problem. When I come out of a turn and gas on it, the car hesitates before it catches hold. Once that happens, it takes off well, but it's just starting to pull good when I have to get out of it for the next turn. When coming out of a turn side by side with another car, he takes off while I'm practically just sitting still. Running a '75 Nova, 355 ci, 4 bbl quad jet, stock intake, 993 heads. cam: 285 duration, 455 lift, 114 deg lobe ctr. pwr glide, w/1.76 low gear, 373 rear end. All help appreciated.

I'VE HAD PAST PROBLEMS WHEN I USED TO RUN QUAD CARB, I HAD THE BACK BARRELS OPENING TOO FAST DROWNING THE MOTOR WITH GAS MAKING IT HESITATE ONCE IT BURNED THE GAS IT WOULD GET UP AND GO!! TRY MAYBE LOOKING INTO HOW FAST THE BACK BARRELS ARE OPENING MAKE SURE PLUG OFFS ON CARB ARE NOT CRACKED OR DRY ROTTED AND TIMING IS RIGHT.. JUST SOME SUGGESTIONS HOPE THEY HELP!!!LOL.

jegs has that cam listed for 2000-6000 says they need headers and a good intake to work right it's a bracket drag racing cam. i think jj is on the right track there sound like it's loading up on you what are you running for a coil module and plugs?might want to look into that area too
