What happends is that dense mixture effectivly extinguish the spark. It's too dense for spark to jump across. If problem persists, look for more powerful coils.

Beep is correct. I had a similar issue a while ago and once I installed a Crane HI-6 ignition system, the symptoms went away. The boost was literally blowing out the spark, resulting in the miss under heavy load
