Is there some Q-jet that are better for racing than others. I see some have front gas inlet and some have side gas inlet. Some even have different tops. What do you look for to get a good circle track carb?

i would suggest not running a quadrajet unless your rules specify you have too.

i would go with the 2 barrel better design and you will be suprised at the throttle response.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY RULES THAT SAY Q JET OR 2BBL. I HAVE RAN THEM BOTH AND I CAN SAY THEY ARE BOTH JUNK. I WOULD FIND OUT WHAT IS RUNING BEST AT YOUR TRACK AND RUN WHAT EVER THE FRONT RUNNERS ARE RUNNING. OUR 2BBL RULES WERE PRETTY STRICT BUT IF YOU CAN GET A BIG 2BBL THEN THAT MIGHT BE THE WAY TO GO IF NOT SEEMS LIKE THE Q JET MIGHT WORK BETTER GIVING THE MOTOR THE AIR IT WANTS.

YOU MAY ALSO WANT TO PUT THIS POST ON THE POWER TRAIN BOARD TO GET SOME ENGINE BUILDERS OPINIONS. INCLUDE YOUR MOTOR SPECS AND SOME BASIC RULES YOU ARE RUNNING WITH AN GOOD ENGINE BUILDER WILL BE ABLE TO POINT YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

Look at www.ecarb.com if your budget allows. Qjets can be modified if you know how, They will outperform a 2bbl there are small adjustments you can make on the secondarys to help. The stock Qjets off of big cid engins work best.Like 454,455,even502caddy Quad will work
