Anyone noticed this:

at speeds of like 50-70 when pulling hard in 3rd or 4th at between 3500 and 4500 R.P.M.s with my foot on the accelerator, I am noticing every now and then, that the r.p.m.s will tail off ever slow slightly even though I am not letting off the accelerator. The engine is an L26, E88, round top SU's.

It almost feels like the carbs are running low or out of fuel. I have only noticed this since changing to a 5sp and 3.90 rear end which gives me higher 3rd and 4th gear, so I have been really pushing it more. Any suggestions<

It sounds like fuel delivery problems. Pull the line off the tank and see if any rust comes out. You might also check the fuel filter or just replace it if you havn't done so in the last couple thousand miles. look for any signs of rust. Easy way to do this is let the gas drane in to your hand and you will be able to see the particles stay in your hand. Sam 75 280z
