VOLKSWAGEN CABRIOLET BATTERY PROBLEM

1983 Volkswagen Cabriolet • 125,867 miles

I have the car listed above. It's been bord and stroked to a 2.1 and I'm running duel 45 weber DCOE's. Car will crank and crank to the point of killing my battery I know I need an altinator but even with the car being jumped started it still cranks and cranks then will eventually idle very very slow then after about 4 min of running slow and doing foot magic with the gas the idle will come up to normal operating speed. I replaced spark plugs fuel regulator is set at 4 and half psi and is fully functional timing is adjusted to 5 degrees advanced but is fully adjustable. Please help thank you!

Set the timing correctly. Make sure the carbs are properly adjusted and synchronized.
