I used a SMI Quadrajet. I was fairly satisfied with it. The only issue with it was the electric choke. When it was connected to a power source and you started the car cold, it would kick on fast idle and stay there a long time. Then when it finally came down to normal idle and I could be sitting at a red light or going down the road. All of a sudden out of no where the high idle would kick back on and the car would take off or at a stop sign and I`d be holding the brakes down with both feet trying to keep it from taking off. Finally I disconnected it and tied it open. It`s still in use today and it`s been a good carb. Looking back on it now I kind of wish I would have just gotten a Jet model. You could do a web search on summit and jegs Quadrajets just to see what those who have bought one think of them.
