Default Supertiger backwards?

To fit into the cowl and with some already plumbed throttle linkage, I installed my Supertiger .90's carberator backwards. It never ran great, but now it idles wonderfully but if I go full throttle it slows down and if I keep it wide open she slows down and dies. Do you think installing the carb backward would do this? Any thoughts? Thank!

Yes. The slot in the spray bar is now pointing to the front. Loosen the two flat head screws holding the spray bar in the carb. Then rotate it until the nipple for the fuel line is pointing at the rear engine mount hole.
