The PO stated that he doesn't have any experience tuning carbs. People have chimed in with extensive experience with carbs, probably built over many decades. For those that have the experience...good on you and I wish I had some more of it. It makes it easy to tune and keep it tuned. For a carb newb though, the situation is different. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with putting efi on a vintage mustang, especially the new throttle body systems that are hidden under an air cleaner. Looks original and, worst case scenario, has the drivability of a car with a well tuned carb. Best case is increased drivability and ease of tuning. Let's also not forget, for the purists, this this is not an irreversible mod.
If the internet and forums were around in the early 1900s, I'm sure people would claim that horses have worked for thousands of years too...why the need for motorized transportation? We are living in a golden age of rodding. sometimes it's best to embrace technology so each person gets the best experience out of our "hobbies". For me, my MSD Atomic kit is sitting in the garage for install as soon as I'm done rewiring the car...
