If your car still has the original Quadrajet you’re better off having it rebuilt. There is one forum member that I would have do it. His name is Lars and his work is excellent. His email is [email protected].

If your car is too fast with the stock 750 Q-Jet (properly set up), you can install an Edlebrock for a solid 15hp loss...

Lars did mine, great job, but I thought he had retired.

80s are the best year for C3s.

Email Lars for his carb and ignition tuning papers. Short of sending it to him directly, you are almost certainly better off with the stock Q-Jet and a proper ignition tune. If you've done that, and still want more, try rebuilding it yourself! Unless your current Q-Jet has already been butchered, you will be miles ahead of most commercial rebuilds or aftermarket carbs.

Lars rebuilt mine in 2001, and it still runs great.
