Yes, they work better for FI than NA, gains are fair 20-25hp..
I have only seen one self install work (MagnumForce)

The horsepower gains are because no one turns the motor faster. MagnumForce I think said he could turn over 8000? and it makes significantly more power. But again. Higher rpm usage.

Yeah sounds like a lot of money for no real gain
