Hey guys, I recently dropped an LT1 from a 94 camaro into my 81, and I'm having a hesitation issue. Since some of you would have LT1's I figured this would be the best place to ask.

First off, when starting the motor, it takes forever for it to actually fire off and run, maybe 6-8 seconds of cranking, so I don't know if that would cause my problem, but anyway....

If I start up the car and press the gas pedal, the engine revs up fine, but if I floor it, it almost dies and sounds like it backfires. I can't figure out what's causing this.

I removed the egr with blockoff plates, and the engine also has no AIR system. I'm fairly certain there aren't any vacuum leaks, but I'll check by spraying carb cleaner tomorrow. The engine idles at about 950rpm according to the stock tach from the camaro. Thanks for any help.
