    I have always preferred EFI.. And if you can swing it, that Edelbrock MPI would be very nice! :)

    I'm very much anti-Edelbrock, but I will give them credit for thier Pro Flow MPFI system.

    If you've got the money, go with EFI.

    For that motor I would look at either the Holley Commander 4barrel TBI or Edelbrock Pro-Flow MPFI. The Pro-Flo is only about $400 more, and it includes a hand-held controller so you don't need a laptop.

    the pro-flo has its own standalone computer & wiring harness. As I understand it, if you run it, you really dont need the stock computer anymore, and could remove all your stock tbi stuff and resell it to recoupe some of the cost. Atleast that is what edelbrock has led me to believe, I may have misunderstood however.
