    I remember reading a while back that you could send your Q-Jet off and have it rebuilt making it optimal for off-roading.

    Does anyone know the company that does this? I now have a Q-Jet (Thanks Rocko!) and was looking to get this done.

    Thanks,

    Thomas.

    I use a guy who can work some serious magic with a q-jet. The name is AA carburator, (360) 737-0949. He rebuilt mine and made it pretty much bullet proof for $175. I've got another one he built on my chevelle. The guys at the drag strip can't believe that I'm killing them with a torquer 2 and q-jet intake.

    All about da flow and staging. Well Edelbrock now builds an off raod carb. is costs nearly as much as putting a used tpi unit on.

    Hey, thanks guys! This definitely gives me a few choices to get it rebuilt from. Is there anything special I should request to have done to it? Or will these places know what to do to it based on the trucks application?

    This truck is built strictly for 4-wheeling, although I will be using it for road trips to the beach, mountains, etc ....

    Thanks again, I appreciate the leads [​IMG]

    Thomas.

    Just tell them what you use the truck for and let them set you up. They're the experts. If they're any good, they'll ask you a bunch of questions before they even touch it. If they don't, I wouldn't let the do it.
