Q-Jet carb?

I currently have a 750 Edelbrock performer carb on my mild 461 in a 81 2dr malibu and it works ok. I have been recently thinking about swapping it for a good Q-Jet. The car has 275/60/15 rear tires with 3.25 gears and an M20 4 speed. Engine is a 461 BBC with an rpm air gap intake, 9:1 comp, 1 3/4" headers, and comp 264HR cam. I like the idea of the small primary's for good throttle response and the big secondaries for max power. Car is street driven with occasional trips to the track, would a Q-Jet work fairly well in this application? If so does anyone other than JET and Edelbrock make them? Thank you in advance.
