The idle air and or high speed air bleeds are probably clogging up. Once this happens the carbs begine to run rich and cause the engine to loose power.

I agree with Alex, with the Webers you are about as close to direct port injection as you can get. If one venturi screw up it will basically kill a cylinder. Pull and read your plugs, that should tell you what you need to check.
