    fuel pickup? float height in the carb? Dozens of possible issues could cause that, most likely fuel starvation.

    hard to beat EFI for wheelin tho...I've got it in all my rigs and it works well. Standalone TBI on my rock crawler, simple enough.

    you've checked pressure? flow? filter? pulled the tank/pickup and cleaned?
