All you need is the Holley #2732 plate. It's cheap, too.

Shines how? In a milage test? I find it hard to believe that the small primary's of the q-jet can pass the same CFM as the larger primary's of the holley square bore. In my test with a 600 edelbrock, 600 holley, and whatever size Q-jet that came with my engine, the holley won hands down with my combo.
My 1850-2 was re-built by me to factory specs. Nothing special only diff. was the 1" spacer.

The Q-jet has very sensitive boosters. It is because of them, plus the diminutive size of the primaries that the Q-jet has the potential for "better" MPG.

Primary Flow for the Q-jet
175 to 185 CFM for 750 CFM Q-jets

210 to 225 CFM for 800 CFM Q-jets. The 225 CFM figure is only for the one-year '71 Pontiac 455 HO high-flow 4M Q-jet. It retained the 1-3/32 venturi, but lacked the outer velocity boosters found in all other models.

Would you use a gasket on each side of that plate?

Yes sir, I would definitely. It comes w/at least one gasket, another can be easily bought or made from a spare piece of gasket material if need be.

The ad on edelbrocks site says "gaskets included". so I would assume that it comes with one for each side. Steel doesn't seal.
