    I would go with the one that you have the most knowledge of, fits in your budget, and will be the easiest for you to tune.

      90% track...

      ...carb

      Reliable, fixable, makes more HP than common plug and play TBI setups, will always be able to get parts for them....

        and keep a points distributor in the trunk, so that if you get hit by an EMP, in a couple of minutes, you can still have a getaway car,lol.heck on the NWO

              A carb makes sense in this instance....you won't be using the vehicle enough to justify an EFI system.

                Cab with wideband 02 in the exhuast. You can dial in your A/f for wide open throttle (12.5 area) square jetted with a power valve block off installed. You can then lean tune for the street if you want by finding the primary jet that gives a good cruise A/F (like mid 14s) and then increase the power valve restrictor channel size back up to square jet size with the power valve.

                Also with the carb you get the fuel cooling from the venturi velocity increase. Good for power.

                  I don't know anything about EMPs, except that it is said that an EMP will knock out anything electronic that has electricity running thru it or power to it, at the time of the pulse. So yes the electronic regulator and ECU would be toasted.
                  But
                  a points distributor does not use the ECU, and
                  you may have noticed that a good working regulator is not required to make or keep a car running; it will start and run just fine with the thing unplugged. However, without the charging system working, the battery will eventually get low enough to either not start the car, or not keep it running. You can get around that by full-fielding the alternator with the engine running, from time to time, to maintain the battery at full or near full charge.
                  But if the EMP takes out the alternator (not likely IMO), then yur walking.
                  I'm still having a hard time believing that an EMP can exist, or that it can do large scale damage if it did. But then; I do believe in;
                  giants and monsters, talking donkeys, special delivery by whale, and dead men walking, so .................

                    EMPs are very rare and very real.

                      A well tuned carb is a lot cheaper and runs just as good, I have a carter AVS and runs flawlessly and also gives me a good feeling that I kept what the car was born with

                        To properly support EFI, the electrical system needs major alteration. The original design isn't really appropriate, although people have been known to crutch it. So weigh that when considering whether carb or EFI is for you on this project.
