sounds like the timing maybe out a little, loosen the bolt on the distributor to where its snug, crank it, and barely turn your distributor, u'll hear a change in idle, get it to where u think it sounds right, and give it some gas, may want to push it to the floor a couple times, u'll hear a difference if it isnt right
Good luck!
