Looking for junk unwanted Q-jets for as cheap as possible. (FREE would be great)

Looking for the newer/smog models with the electric chokes.

Wanting to try an experiment and need a couple or so for molesting and or destruction.

I like Q-jets and will not let go of mine!
They are hard to get set working right, like a temperamental woman, but when they do it's like magic.

Back as a teenager I had a Q-jet mess with me.
It ended up getting concrete wall tested, and I went to AFB's.
Now, being a little less ignorant I'll admit my former hatred of them was formed from personal frustration due to lack of knowledge.

Setting up the induction for the kids truck engine.
Going to try a early high rise iron intake and Q-jet. (already Brzezinski'd the intake.)

I'm going to due a track testing with my car against the Performer 2-o and 800dp on it.

I'm thinking no power loss and better manners.

I must have thrown the few away I had, can’t seem to find any. I’ll keep an eye out though.

I now see why some people like Q-jets.

So far it is performing better than the 800 Holley DP I took off.

Now it will idle without loading up, and light/part throttle manners are night and day different.

Only thing left now is the track test ET. comparison.
