Question CIS air/fuel flapper is binding...car is down

Need some advice before I tear into it. Was cruising home from work tonight, and I could tell the car was about to die...gave a hesitation, and I could tell as soon as I took my foot off the gas she'd be dead. So I coasted into a parking lot.

From what I can tell, the fuel metering flapper plate is binding. It doesn't have that "feather touch" to make it move down - takes some force to push down. The car runs VERY ROUGH. Will not idle. Sounds a little bit like it's backfiring through the intake.

I have the following CIS mods:
-Imagine Auto modified fuel head
-Brian Leask WUR
-Brian Leask RPM solenoid
-No smog equipment
-no AAV
-Aftermarket air cleaner...no air box

I checked to be sure that the AFR adjustment spring/screw wasn't binding on my air cleaner, and it's not.

Any ideas? What would cause this? Car was running beautifully.
