    Post Carb. pop-off pressure

    First check compression and see where it is.

    Compression is good. My main concern is the importance of pop-off pressure. And if higher or lower within spec. is better.

    Low pop off pressure won't cause a "hesitation". A hesitation is caused by a lean condition, and a low pop off creates a rich condition. Could have an air leak somewhere on that SBT special.

    Have you checked your timing on that SBT engine?? I would start there and then look at fuel issue. SBT is famous for reducing compression in there wonderful rebuilds which can and will cause the hesitation you are getting. If the timing is bit slow it will enhance it
