Keith, what do you really have against this combination? Be honest now.
I've been running the very same set up for over 5 years. Maybe I'm not as 
anal as you are, in that I can live without the chokes on the carbs (Solex or 
Weber). So what if the engine is running slighly rough for the first 5 minutes, 
as far as everything else goes, this combo works very well. Mine is getting 
27.5 on the highway, and 21.5 in the city. I know there are a lot of other people 
out there that are using this very same combo in their type3s, and type1s. 
Once this combo is set up, it works very well, and is very maintenance free. The 
biggest trick of it all is in the set up. You have to have all the parts and 
pieces dialed in correctly. It's a smaller learning curve too, but it's 
starting to sound like FI doesn't it, in that everything works together.
