Default Cutting out under load

My 89 that I just bought cuts out under full throttle sometimes usually above 3500 or 4k rpm's. It doesnt do it every time its under load though. It kinda sputters like a miss or something. The car seems to idle ok and normal driving is ok. Any ideas?

Im not sure what the plugs are gapped at. I just picked up the car a week or two ago. Havent had much of a chance to look at anything. I just noticed that it doesnt do it all the time. In my old car I had a problem with the wire arcing to the header but these are all clear.
