starts fine and is driveable as long as you ease into the throttle, but as soon as you get to a certain spot with the accelerator, the engine runs very rough and you have to back off and find the happy place for the accelerator and the misfiring or rough idleing goes away. the engine doesnt die, but looses power and runs very rough until you back off, but if you accelerate very slowly you can get up to speed. But even at 70 mph, if you ask for 75mph the engine begins to run very rough and won't calm down until you back off a little.
