Ummm.... that was long after everyone else stopped using a carburetor because they couldn't meet EPA and CARB emissions as well as CAFE.
Saying the Qjet "wasn't that great because they stopped using them in 1989" is like saying that the "Camaro wasn't that great because they stopped making them in the 2000's."
The Qjet is a great carb... and I agree with you that tuning is the biggest factor.
