fuel problem

i have a 1985 honda prelude dx (dual carb) and when it gets to about 3500rpm-4500rpm the gas quits goin into the engine i replaced the fuel pump thinking this would solve the problem but it has not. i also replaced the fuel filter. im thinking it might be a carb problem or a fuel line but im not a mechanic so i dont know i would appreciate any sort of advice thank you.

Not familiar with the Honda, but is there any chance:

the jets are clagged;
the emulsion tube is clagged;
the fuel cut solenoid is losing a signal;
the bowl vent solenoid(s) is losing a signal;
the delivery tubes in the amplifiers are clagged;
the mixture screws are wound out too far;
the fuel cut pressure sensor is faulty;
the power piston is staying open (wrong vacuum hose connected);
the bango on the pump is clagged;
the fuel pickup in the tank is clagged;.......

Can you tell if there is fuel in the bowls e.g. does pumping the accelerator keep it going?
