I may have commented on this before, but I'm always a fan of a well tuned and rebuilt engine specific qjet. No carb has ran better than a Qjet, at least on my engine.

Stock or mild performance you cannot beat a well tuned Q-Jet, add a "lopey" cam with low vacuum Holley works best.
Just my $.02

Up from the grave!!!..;)....Last post was April 2015 but I agree. I've always wanted to tune my Q-Jet with a wide band but ended up taking the jump to LS power with EFI. There is a lot to be gained with real time data.

you took the easy way out...:p

both q and h are great if you stay on top of them. q-jet seems to stay tuned longer, holley will e.t. better.
