Runs like crap!

my 81 camaro has a 350 and is really running rough it tries to die when you give it gas until you get over 1800 rpm. When it is warm it dies even more. Any ideas?

Failing ingtion module and or failing coil will cause those symptoms.
By ignition module I mean the pick up inside the distributor.

Also bad cap and rotor will cause issues.
