Unless you just don't want the fuel injection, really, the fuel injection will give you the most reliable power. With the money you would spend on changing over, if you spent it on mods on the FI you would have a good performer. my 2 cents.

I was wondering this myself..

After pulling this FI system apart, I've realized that it's not as bad as I thought it would be, but still, carbs seem to have less problems and cheaper upgrades. Plus, coming off dirtbikes, I don't mind tuning carbs (actually, I like it). To increase the flow of an FI you need to change MAF, TB, Injectors, cold air intake and think about another computer. To get better flow with carbs, slap on the next size up and rig some linkage (i think... could be wrong, but this seems to be what I have read). Also, I don't need to worry about emissions here in Canada. Do you carb guys further north have to re-tune when the temperature drops for the winter?

the best carbs..

I think the best thing is to refer you to this site geocities.com/zgarage2001/enginehtml there is a lot of great information there and I think it will answer alot of question. Gary Portland Ore.
