There's nothing wrong with doing the full MC conversion with fuel and ign
systems. I just didn't want to get into the whole wiring fiasco associated
with this. So I used my stock JT fuel and ign for a year, now I have EFI and
life is good :) Making a wiring harness to do EFI is so much simpler than
swapping the acres of MC wiring harness into the car. My ignition control is
working out pretty well so far.
Haven't we been through this a few times?
