It only does it when I'm in 4th gear. I can redline 1,2,3, and no cutting out once I hold the throttle steady in 4th it starts to cut out really bad. I can punch it and it wont cut out but as soon as hold the throttle steady it starts to cut out. Any ideas? thanks. :)

I'm running the James Dean kit with the stock pipe, and the stock pilot jet. Run the recommended main jet/ needle and clip pos. per your alltitude and it should run sweet. Mine runs crisp as hell. It's well worth the $$$ imho.

Just cut back on the main. You are just slightly rich. Cutting out under more load is normal in higher gears and not lower ones if you are just slightly rich. :)
