Are you sure the TV ( trans shift cable at the throttle valve) cable is correctly adjusted?? Without line pressure readings, I can only guess that the D3/Part throttle check ball is missing, if it is a trans problem
If the TV is correct, I am assuming that the TV cable is pulled tight at WOT.
Did you check the throttle (ACCEL) cable to be sure that the carb goes wide open when your accel pedal is on the floor?? This must be done with someone in the car and a second person looking at the carb. Without doing this, you do not know if you have WOT. Without WOT, the trans will not de-tent and shift down.

Slimsoul, a bad fuel pressure regulator would cause a problem similar to this. You may already know this but a fuel pressure regulator kinda works backwards from the way you would think. When your car is at idle it produces the most amount of vacuum which power things like brakes. As your RPM's increase your vacuum drops. When a fuel pressure regulator recieves 0 vacuum it fully opens and allows the most amount fuel to flow through. So, you mash on the gas from idle and the car stumbles from lack of fuel. A common cause of this is because the regulator diaphram has a hole in it, which causes it to open slowly. There is a very simple test for this that, yes, even you can try at home. I'm assuming your corvette is a C4 (84-96). Open the hood, stand on the passengers side, and stare towards the back of the plenum just in front of the distributor. Now look underneath the upper plenum, and attatched to the lower manifold at an approximate 45 deg angle is a round piece that kinda resembles a top hat. This is your regulator. There should be a hard black plastic vacuum line attatched to the regulator. Now for the tricky part, unplug it and crank the car. If the regulator is in fact the problem, this should at least improve if not eliminate your problem. If it does not, my next step would be to check your fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge available at Autozone for around $40. A TPI motor needs at least 40 psi to operate properly. Back to the regulator, if it is in fact the problem your going to have to replace the diaphram in the regulator which is somewhat of a pain. You have to pull off the throttle body and upper plenum to get to it. Additionally the FPR is secured with special security torx bits, I believe its a T5. The plenum runner gaskets and throttle body gaskets will need to be replaced if they're original. If you're not somewhat handy I would suggest taking it to a shop to do the job.

TPS is always connected to one end of the throttle plate shaft It should not be difficult to identify. If you already have the new one the old one is identical. Usually fastened with two small torx screws.

Simply have it replaced, horns on domestics usally stop working as mine did on my 93 lumina, it stopped working and I had it replace and it worked fine after that.
