Honestly don't know enough about Qjets to know how its going to run with that much cam, and like is said, kijiji, Craig's list etc, you could likely swap the edelbrock for something more appropriate. And the cam is going to want a 3500 + stall, that being said, find a Carb, through a stall of your choice in it, and go enjoy the hell out of it.
