Performance, reliability, affordability: pick any two. 

If you are willing to spend the time necesary to learn about your FI, 
then it will be the most reliable way to go for you, by far. If this 
seems like too great a burden then prepare to pay a lot for a carb 
setup and then be surprised to discover that there is a large 
learning curve for that, too! Don't expect it to just work correctly 
right out of the box. There is NO easy way out.

If you have a reasonably well functioning type 3 with FI now, there 
is no reason to change. Especially if you are just starting out, 
consider studying the simple stuff first, and then moving on to the 
more challenging parts. The biggest mistake that far too many people 
make is getting into this and deciding right away to just change 
everything. Later, when something isn't working right, and you ask 
what is wrong, one of the questions is going to be, "What did you 
change?" If the answer is "Everything," then we may not have enough 
info to be of much help to you.
