Is your distributer advance plate seized?

When I bought my car it behaved the same as yours (similar mods to yours). I noticed a thread discussing the advance plate in the distributer needing to be disassembled because the grease hardens with time. The grease in mine was so hard I was unable to get the advance plate to move. Do a search for an exploded diagram of the distributer to see the advance plate. If it's stuck in the retarded position you'll be missing about 9 degrees of ignition timing making it a dog off the line.
