My 1992 Prostar with a 351 Ford and Holley Carb boggs on take off and will only run about 36 mph. When trying to go WOT it slows down until I back off the throttle.:(

Have you changed the fuel filter? Is the gas fresh? May need to clean out, or rebuild the carb.

Look into carb rebuild if you've not done one in a while. Had same issue three summers ago and the carb rebuild fixed it right up.

Thanks to all. I had a lot of gunk built up in the rear bowl and was able to clear it out by removing the top of the carb., then the rear jets and blew them clear with some gumout. Since I didn't tear any gaskets I was able to reassemble it at no cost and I was back up and running.
