RE: FI conversion

The biggest plus with FI is the warmup curve, it will start on one
compression stroke and run smoothly right off the bat, no pumping the pedal,
no feathering it to keep it going.  Once set up you can leave it alone
too... not adjustments and syncing like with the carbs.

Youll love it!

or new, including two NOS wiring harnesses.  My car was originally FI, so it

has the delivery and return fuel lines.  Some years ago the FI wiring from 
the engine bay to under the back seat shorted out and destroyed most of the 
harness.  I'm pretty confident that I can fix most of this, as there really 
aren't that many wires involved.

My question is, is it worth the effort to get the FI working again?  I want 
to do it just for the challenge and because there are VERY few type 3s in 
Australia which still have the original FI working.  Never having driven an 
FI type 3, I cannot judge the relative performance.  I imagine there are a 
few of you out there who have driven both and can compare, I would like your
