Carbs, however have shown that for max effort application, they are still effective. They make the same if not slightly more peak HP while allowing the air-fuel mixture more time to mix as it makes its way to the cylinder. Not to mention changing carbs is about ten times cheaper than changing EFI systems.

For racing, I don't think the carb will ever die, but on the street, I will take my EFI any day of the week!
i like both...

Never race anything you can't afford to light on fire and push off a cliff
A group as a whole tends to be smarter than the smartest person in that group until one jackass convinces everyone otherwise.
