Performer RPM intake & carb Q

I currently have a tired early 80s 350 with a brand new Q-Jet on it.

I have purchased at a great price, a race shop rebuilt 355, 3970010 casting, with 333882 rebuilt heads, an Edelbrock Energizer cam (I think?) with a Performer RPM intake (nothing too wild).

My question is can I adapt the qjet onto the intake, the reason I ask is the motor will be in a Jeep used for off-roading and the qjet is a great off road carb, and is brand new.

If the qjet will not fit, would I be better off getting another carb like a Holley Truck Avenger, or just get a different intake and put my qjet on it.

I would like to get an aluminum intake and not reuse the cast iron one from my old 350.

Thanks for looking

You can buy an adaptor & bolt the Q-jet on the RPM intake. I don't think you'll get full performance benefits out of that setup because of the very large secondaries of the Q-jet on a square bolt intake, but it may work for now. You didn't say if this was a race car, daily driver, or what but for me carb. selection would depend on what/how I was going to use the car.
If it's a daily driver, & gas being the price it is, I'd either get the adaptor (Ebay is a good place to look) & go w/the Q-jet or use an Edelbrock/AFB 600-625 CFM carb. If it's a racer & you want to keep the RPM intake you can't beat a well set up Holley/B.Grant. If your Q-jet works good I'd get a Performer intake that's made for the Q-jet & install it. Just my two cents worth.
