    Sounds like it's either a vaccum problem or it's not getting proper fueling.

    Wrong forum BTW.

    moved FTW

    vacuum leak, map sensor issue?

    are you in a cold temp?

    does the carb'ed version have a coolant temp sensor?

    is your CEL on?

    what if you rev it till it warms up?
    then will it run ok?
