    I am contemplating an Edelbrock carb and Intake, and I was wondering if anyone has done it, or has numbers. I have no clue what kind of emmisions crap my blazer has on it, it is an 89 crate motor with stock Q-jet, that originate in cali. How do I find out exactly what I have, and what I need to get. I am interested in the performer intake and 600cfm carb, what do you guys think?

  2. you wont like the edie carb off road. get the performer with the spread bore and keep the q-jet. best off road carb. one of the mags did a comparison between holley, edelb., and q-jet and the q-jet won hands down. i had an edlebrock on a j**p of mine and it sputtered with one tire on the curb.

    I agree, stay away from the little square bore AFB edel. Spend a few extra dollars and get the Q-Jet version. I've run both and I can guarantee you the AFB stinks off road. I returned mine within 48 hours. And don't let anyone tell you the "off-road kit" will fix it up. I was personally told by Edel techs (more than one!) that it was only a marginal improvement. It helps but still does not even get close to being in the same league as the Q-Jet. That Edel Q-Jet totally rocks right out of the box...
