    i know it sounds evil, but i need to pass emissions and i was wondering if a rochester dualjet would be enough to run a stock 82 350. i figure it would be ok, considering it's just the quadrajet primaries, which the engine normally runs off of, anyway. my q-jet is running way rich and i'm pretty sure leaking into the manifold. i just don't know if i'm ready to rebuild my q-jet (time and money are the main factors). and i can pick up this rebuilt dualjet for cheap. just an idea.

    Yeah it would work, GM did it in some applications.

    I'd spend the time rebuilding the q-jet myself, if it doesn't need throttle bushings you can do a quickie rebuild in a couple hours the first time, not needing cleaning you can get it down to around 15 minutes. :)

    Rebuild kits are $20-25, so it's not like they cost much. Some JB Weld for the well plugs, some sandpaper to scuff them up for the JB, and your tools should be all you need.
