Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

You may have a slight fuel delivery issue on the carbs on the engine. When the demand is slowly increased the carbs are slow to react. this or you may have a slight compression issue. Test the compression of all 4 cylinders. It should be over 90 PSI on each cylinder.
