351c with holley

Just bought my first MC. 1982 SS.

It smokes a little(rich). It hesitates out of the hole, but pulls hard out of the water at full throttle, once the boat planes out, it sputters at full throttle untill i bring it back to 3/4 throttle. Max speed is 34mph right now, i was expecting 45. I have tried to dial the holley adj but the same happens only sooner or it effects my top speed. Now that i have been screwing with the carb its been back firing. Should i fuel inject the damn thing?

I am looking for a kind soul to offer me up a check list of things to do(best) or send me to a thread that has addressed this.

Things that have been done(other than above)
-Rebuilt Holley last season no altitude change since rebuild
-new powerslot tranny
-clean fuel cell
-new dist coil and wires last season
-previous owner used it at the same lake in denver (5280ft)
