I've often thought of one but they are bloody expensive compared with a carb. I would have thought they might be a bit more economical than a carb but then again they are a holley.

I believe that they are very much like the CFI EA motors in concept. Far better than a carby, but not as good as MP EFI

Throttle body injection is pure crap....DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Visit my website for examples of REAL engine management.

throttle body injection is far cheaper pete.... that's why it still exists. I would love a proper EFI setup for the XA but I just don't have that sort of $$. In fact, I probably will just stick with a Holley (as bad as they are )

the setup ofthe engine management of the CFI units would be an exercise in frustration I would think!!!

Couldn't agree more. I'd love EFI but the $$$$ to do it for the minimal gain isn't worth it.

EFI systems req manifold to suit/injectors/computer and sensors. I've been quoted in excess of $4000 to do it. Most of the $ is computer due to the modified engine.

Cheaper and easier to get a late model EFI windsor V8/loom and computer. Only downfall is reworking another engine.
