Ok cool. Don't be afraid to try experiment with the spacer thickness 1/2 1" 2"
4 hole, divided or a mix/match. This can have a big effect on low end torque and throttle responce on cars with a stock converter stall.
You will see the effect in how the car drives.

I prefer the earlier simpler pre 1975 4MV style Q jets.
If yours works well you are 3 steps ahead of the game. You can get tuning parts from Edelbrock etc for it.

Edelbrock even makes a cool specific performer RPM style manifold that fits a Qjet directly.
Can use either type carb without a spacer or with. Keep your eye out for this if you like Q jets and going fast.
Will fit under the corvette hood with the OEm 14x 3"corvette air cleaner.
