i change the intake manifold , a performance
distributor , edelbrock 4 barrel carb. And just
change the gas tank and recently when im

it starts back up then as im driving cuts off

Try to determine if this is a spark issue or a fuel delivery problem. Maybe the gas tank has crud in the bottom that blocks the fuel pickup.

Its a new tank would it have crud in it ? And if it was a fuel problem i don't think the car would start and drive for so long just asking ?

I thought it was a electrical issues at first and i change my ignition coil
