    I'm putting a 351w in my 94 gt and i was wondering if it would be easier to carbrate it or will it run better if I make it fuel injected?

    Which are you more familiar with? If you don't care, I say go with EFI.

    How fast are you trying to go? For drag carb makes way more sense.

    I say go with a good ol' Holley style carb. You can't beat em. Simple to work on, parts are readily available, run like a charm (when set up correctly), matches or exceeds performance of EFI, and can be tuned with a handy dandy screwdriver, whereas EFI needs a 2,000 dollar robot telling it what to do.

    Adder I wasn't saying you can't run EFI on a stock computer. I was saying you can tune a carb with a screwdriver, whereas EFI you need a 2,000 dollar robot telling it what to do that's all.

    Which particular $2000 robot are you referring to? Because, as shown above... my power plant is likely making twice as much power as you are. On a stock computer.

    No $2000 tuning system here.

    You are sadly misinformed, and should keep your advice to yourself.

    EFI tuned 410ci on my stock '95 T4M0 with a chip. Car starts in any weather, idles and pulls hard past 7K. No issues with EFI. F**k, even Nascar hillbillies are now on EFI.
