    What is your ignition set up? LOTS of ignition issues are miss-diagnosed as carb problems. Also, "farts down the tail pipes", while going down the road, does not sound good. How old is your timing gear set? Recent cam change? Is the rpm consistent with the exhaust noise? I had a similar problem after I put on my Edelbrock heads. Somehow I lost a lobe on the cam...

    i am thinking you need a bit more main jet, something like 72s. i would also look for vacuum leaks.
