I second that on the Q-Jet carb. You just gotta love those huge secondaries!

Get one rebuilt from a reputable rebuilder and enjoy your Corvette!

I agree! I had my Quadrajet rebuilt and put on a flow bench 3 years ago and it still is working flawlessly! I've had Holleys on other Chevys, and you always have to fiddle with them!

Smile For the BEST of BOTH worlds,  Seat slam and gas use, the Q-Jet fits the ticket.  Go for it!
