Re: [T3] FI vs Carburetion.

<x-flowed>Do it Phil! These FI/Electronic Ignition cars have lots of problems. Swap out for a rebuilt distributor ignition while you're @ it! Mike

What is this "bad press about FI problems"? It is just the reverse. The original FI works better and more reliably than any carb conversion ever could.

This summer I will be in the market for a Porsche 914. That's another car where many people, mostly out of pure ignorance, have opted to do carburator conversions. I would not touch any of them with a 10 foot pole.
