new q-jet carb

hey guys,

just bought a q-jet intake on ebay for my 67 350 car and need to buy a new carb for it. i was looking through jegs and summit catalouges and saw rebuilts for about 299.00 that are there own brands or you have the ones from jet performance for about 399.00, money is not really an issue just want a good carb that i don't have to mess with . the only reason that i'm doing this is because at the tulsa superchevy show i got put in the street class because of the edelbrock carb on a completely stock 67. still placed in the class but not where i wanted. thanks for all the help.

Re: new q-jet carb

Call Sean Murphy at Sean Murphy Inductions
www.smicarburetor.com

He'll custom build a stage 2 quadrajet specifically jetted/metered for your engine/drivetrain combo, it will run excellent right out of the box, way better than any box carb from Summit. Sean Murphy use to be a senior at Jet Performance until he opened his own business down the street (literally). There are a few guys on this board and a bunch on Team Chevelle that have used his carbs with excellent results. I own two of them, one on each of my cars.

Cost is $325-$350

O'reilly has them at a much better price with a warranty. Make sure you get the non-emissions carb.

Re: new q-jet carb

rbs67cam, let me know how your SMI carb works out. I purchased one from him for my 67 RS/SS350 but it will be a while before I am ready to fire it up.

By the way, I was at the Tulsa SuperChevy show. Post a pic of your car if you can so I can recall it.
