    Has anybody ever bought one of the remanufactured Jet performance Q-jets (if so, what stage...1,2, or 3) and what were/are your experiences?
    Also has anybody ever bought one the Edlebrock replacement Q-jets, and if so what were/are your experiences?

    Thanks in advance.

    i have the 1904 q-jet replacement. and i can't get it to stop flooding out. i still working on it. but other than this i love it. its never stalled or booged out. and it has run better than any of my other q-jets

    i blew my main seal.

    What do you mean by flooding out? Is only on slopes, at startup, or everyday in your driveway? Sorry but I am seriously considering the 1904 or 1906 and want as much feedback as possible.

    I bought the #1904 brand new also. Its currently on my 454 and I love it. It's way better than the old stock Q-Jet it replaced. Definitely with these Edelbrock stuff, you truly do get what you pay for! [​IMG]

    i do like it. i think it is way better than any q-jet i have had. and this is the only prob i have had with it. i have had alot worse probs with my q-jets and holleys. so i say if you want to spend the money on it go for it. i like it.
