    copish? If you haven't had problems with the QJet stick with it. Edelbrock Performer is a decent intake in my book. I like the Thunder AVS carb for on road use, haven't had it off road so no comment there. Loosing the airpump is good to reduce drag on your motor but if you need it for emissions you may be in trouble come inspection time. As for the EGR, unless you have to remove it I wouldn't. It helps with emissions and it really doesn't affect power . Yeah it heats up the air charge but on a basically stock motor don't worry about it. headers are a great way to power, but they are also a big pain in the but sometimes(my burb has a nice collector leak I can't fix).

    you'll regret getting rid of the quadrajet, nothing else works as good off camber as a good old QJet.

    TRUST ME....KEEP THE Q JET AAND EGR. I put a holley street avenger on my truck and removed the egr...now I have to put the egr back on because it keeps knocking when hot and the holley ices up in the damp cold. I would get a Q Jet back on but I have too much time and money invested on the holley. If you live in warmer climates then don't worry about the icing part. I highly suggest intake and headers will do alot for that engine.
