Can you tell us more about the car? Model? Mods?

5th gear might make it load-dependant, as the higher the gear the higher the load. Things to look at: secondary injectors (86+), MAP sensor, Air Flow Meter, fuel pump. Do you notice the clutch slipping at all? Another possibility is the driveshaft u-joints, as a loose one can rattle your teeth out. Hope that gives you food for thought.

It is an 1985 GSL, the problem seemed to go away, and it is running very smooth. However I noticed that one of teh carb lines ( bellow the main and teh return).. the little green ones. well one of them is dribbling out fuel, is this just a problem with the line?
