    Been a while since you posted this have you cured your problem? If not check the cat. converter it may be stopped up if its still on there. Another thing is the olds 403 wasn't very quick back when it was new but it was faster then most.

    79 403 olds T/A ran 15 flat in quarter on a good day in 79 which was good for stock back then. Check the easy stuff first timing , vacuum advance working?, are the back barrels opening on carb. Maybe have the distributor recurved we used to have to do this to make them run .

    2.41 gears don't help much either.

    The 403 is a great motor with a little basic tweaking.
