I'm not sure that I understand your question...

There are a bunch of variables that we don't know about.

Do you have dual exhaust...I'd do that first.

But, I don't think that there is an advantage going for a Q-jet to a Holley.

SMI does a good rebuild on a Q-jet.

poor performance could be anything. flat cam , tune up, low compression, carbononthevalves, exhaust restriction and so on.

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.
