Heres some backround on what my car is doing:
It runs great when cold, lots of power above 3K, spins the tires at 3K (aod with stock stall sucks with a cam) idles great when you first start it up

buuuut when it warms up a bit it feels like my cars 1000lbs heavier, its still quick, but it doesnt feel even close to as fast
and it doesnt want to idle,
Also below like 2500 rpm if i floor it it bogs and gives me a couple pops in the exhaust
it wants to die when i come to a stop unless i put it in N and give the gas a little pump
even with the nitrous it doesnt feel as fast

I ran the codes and nothing came up, but when i did the balance test it said cyls 4,5,8 were low

and at part throttle its kinda choppy surges a bit

can someone fill me in on how to set the idle properly

and any ideas why it runs bad when hot?
