I'm running an Edelbrock performer right now, which is okay (very powerful, but lousy throttle response and sometimes hard to start - especially after a few days). I still have my old Q-jet sitting in a box, which had nothing really wrong with it except for all the emissions lines hanging off of it. Can anyone tell me if a Q-jet from a 1983 305 is a good carb if I'm not interested in any emissions stuff? Can I just plug up a bunch of the vacuum ports and have a normal good Q-jet? Or should I plan on having it rebuilt for my non-emission 350? Also, any idea if it'll still be good to go after 6 years in a box in the garage? Thanks.
