I wish I knew more carb stuff to help you out. Like you suggested, it might be a tuning thing. Could be a very small vacuum leak that doesn't bother it until you get up in revs - but if 3rd gear is spirited then this is unlikely. I would go to the facebook page, fordfestiva.com, or to the actual www.fordfestiva.com and ask there. Just copy and paste.
