I completely agree even though I'm a Holley fan. Q-jet is plenty enough for most of your needs. Decent fuel mileage and its a variable airflow carb. I use a Q-jet whenever possible. People who say they are junk just don't have the patience to understand them. They are actually pretty simple when you get past the linkage issues,lol.
