Default 1988 Prelude with dual carbs acceleration issue

I just got an 88 Prelude and had the carbs rebuilt. After a cold start the car warms up and then within a mile or two of driving I am unable to accelerate. I **** off the car and the issue goes away. Any ideas? Thank you

Sounds like the floats might be sticking, or the needle valve for the float is getting clogged or sticking. Or the floats are not adjusted properly.
