If you are using stock CV carbs, there are vent lines for the vacuum
slides. It is the same concept as with the float bowls. When the throttle
plates are opened, low pressure is created on top of the diaphram. High
pressure air (atmospheric) via the vent lines pushes up on the diaphram
thereby lifting the slides. If you don't have these pressurized I would
think that under boost the slides might not be opening all the way.
