been meaning to reply, keep getting jammed up (not the way Ronnie gets jammed "up")

echoing the previous sentiments - great color... looks like PTS

regarding the running condition, ^Aaron^ makes a good point - however, with a few prodding questions, we can help you help us 8-)

describe what you mean by "running intermittently esp above 3,500"

meaning

- violent cut-out of power? (face hits windshield)
- sputter (misfire - a cylinder or more dropping out)
- flat power or lack of power

If it were me, I'd pull the distributor cap and check / clean the contacts on the cap / rotor, ensure both ends of all spark plug wires and coil wire are fully seated - and go for a ride.

If not that, spray some carb cleaner or brake clean around all intake seams and see if idle raises.

If not those - report back 8-). Diagnosis gets a bit more complex from there, but you're in good hands here...

Good luck, awesome car, and welcome to the insanity...
