my whole point is $$$ I know how to do EFI...right at this time I choose not to for cost reasons alone..but thats just me....things are tight and if $$ were no object I would run a aftermarket EFI setup in a second....but the way things are far more cost effective for me to run carbs...but to each their own...

Jason,

Didn't you have programming issues with your Crockett engine upgrades?
If I am remembering things correctly you had a hell of a time getting
the engines to run properly. Why would you jump on Steve for merely
pointing out the obvious? I hope it is something simple that does not
require any reprogramming, but as pointed out, it may be.

Yes I did. The tune Crockett provided for his package was terrible. That is what lead me down the road to obtain the knowledge to do it right. We found the tools it takes to right. We then learned how to operate them and we then were able to fugure out how to do it right.
There is no way I would take a disfunctional EFI system from an engine and repalce it with a carb knowing what I know now about correctly fixing EFI. The advantages are just too great compared to a carb.

i hope you didn't take any offense at my use of the " you" ... it was not me commenting on anything you personally were doing... it was a generic corporate "you" ... i fully understand the " working with the resources you have" deal. and the fact is that you still have your boat and i don't so you are way ahead of me anyway.

I think we all got a little wound up in this thread, Steve. All is good!
