Junkyard EFI requires no work, just drop it in and go (unless you need to have someone just come remove the engine-key security. I did this years ago
on a BMW, we dropped in an LT1, and I just wired the GM fuel pump wire to the BMW fuel pump relay, Ignition power went to ECU power, and then wired
the BMW starter relay to the LT1 starter. Had a friend stop by and plug in his laptop, ran a program and boom the security was disabled.
Turned the key and VROOMMM job done.
Funny thing though, carburetors actually atomize the fuel better than all but the very best injectors, and so they have the potential to get better
fuel mileage, however carbs don't have the mixture adaptability, so in the real world in varying temperatures, altitudes, humidity and loads; fuel
injection works better all round. There were some electronic carbs around in the 80's but the tech back then really wasn't there to do things
I'd love to see what could be done today using a truly electronically controlled carburetor with an airflow meter and wideband O2 sensing.
