So I think I'm going with the Holley 12-289-11 fuel pump, it seems to be in the range for both the qjet and the motor. I could use some recommendations on a fuel regulator, prefer US made and it needs a return.

I've been happy with my Aeromotive, not cheap but you know what they say. Had a question when I first installed it, called and was able to get ahold of an actual person which is refreshing in this day and age.

I am also a Q-Jet fan. Just be sure to set the secondary air doors correctly or you may experience a Car-B-Q like I did! Totally my fault for forgetting that one little tidbit when I removed the hunk of junk FI-Tech unit. It never came close to working correctly. Now running the full on 96 Explorer setup and it is quite nice! Good luck! B2

Well darn, I know you have a Q-jet coming, but I'm simple minded and have been using the same size # Edelbrock carburetor, 59 chevy, 67 Mustang, The Bronco of course, and I've never had any bad luck until my Mustang was under water for 2 weeks and the carburetor was toast. I remember the q-jet from my growing up years, but I wasn't much into cars at that time of my life, but again remember them, and how interesting they were/are. Just look a little complicated for me. So ,there you have it, that's my story and contribution to this thread. I look forward to updates on your journey;)

What intake manifold are you guys running with your Q-Jet carbs? Are you using an adapter or a spread bore manifold?

I would recommend a Carter P4070 and delete the regulator and return line.

I run the offenhauser I think it's a 360 model on my 351w motors. It comes with the both styles of carb mounting holes. But you need to bore it out for the butterflies to operate. The 302 model may work out of the box.

On square bore intakes you need an adapter to allow the HUGE secondaries to open w/o hitting the intake. This adds height which can be overcome but you just have to plan.

Back in the early/mid 90's seemed like anybody that wheeled hard off road either ran the stock Ford 2bbl or a Qjet. General consensus was the Qjet was the poor man's fuel injection.

If you never wheeled off road you could ran an Edelbrock or Holley and think they were gold. :)

Stock Ford cast iron intake is the easist next to the OFFY. Then Edelbrock Performer.

Offset air filter

Dropped base or dropped element filter assembly housing where the bottom of the filter is dropped down enough to clear your throttle linkage but lower the overall height of the new intake, carb and filter.

The 1976 Mustang II 302 (told ya I'm old) :) paper air filter element which is 2 1/16"x14" is a perfect candidate and is what I used for decades

Jet performance q-jet. Rock solid!
I just received my 2nd Jet Perfomance QJet.
I did a swap out with my older QJet that I had rebuilt to Taz's Firebronco Jet QJet on his 408W. I was amazed at how much difference in power my motor had at off idle and part throttle. I had to order one for me.
