what would you buy and what sensors would you run?
Crank position sensor, even if you are going to run a stock dizzy.
Air temperature sensor.
Cooland temperature sender. ( very handy for cold start enrichment settings )
I have Megasquirt controling the injectors and ignition, still running a stock dizzy, distribution the spark to the plugs (single coil with IGTB) but igntion is fully controled by Megasquirt which gets its signal by a 36-1 crank trigger. Crank trigger is way more accurate.
You can not live without an 02 sensor, you need to see whats going on, even on carbs.
MAP gives you the ability to alter fuel & igniion settings under load
You can let MAP & TPS work together in % MAP DOT or % TPS DOT
Most ECU's start in closed loop thats where the o2 sensor plays a big role, fully warmed up they go to open loop, but I always like a % o2 influence.
My 50cents, carbs or injection, same top horsepower. Carbs, no hassle once set up correctly and synchronised each year.
Injection gives you the ability to get better fuel control under any condition but thats not a matter of just setting it up on the rollers within a few hours. and 8 stacks needs to be synchronised also each year
Carbs or injection, doesn't make much on fuel consumption also.
I have spent hours in weeks, months with the laptop in the car to fine tune my ECU settings during driving conditions and I am still not satisfiet.
Injection is fancy but doesn´t ad.
Carbs allways work. no sensors to fail, no heat soak injector issues leaving you stranded for an hour to cool off after a fuel stop., carbs just a tap on the throttle to give fuel to fire up the engine.
