Question K&N Pod on 3.3L XE. HELP!!!

Hi. I just finally set up my 9" K&N Pod filter onto my XE 3.3L Carby. Using a little creativity and the air intake set up off an old renault fuego GTx I have sitting around I managed to make the damn thing fit without any leaks.

Looks good, breathes and the pickup of the old girl has improved. Now for the problem. When I step on the accelerator she dies a bit then takes off. I've played a little with my air/fuel mixture but still not much improvement. What is my next course of action???

sounds like your accelarator pump is either giving it too mutch fuel but because of the mod you just done i would say its not getting enough fuel because it would breath alot better its probly getting a gut full of air and bugger all fuel
