Fuel injection without question.  You can control high vacuum, boost,
air/fuel, etc..  Also, the dyno curve is smooth and throttle response is
great.  I have Mr. Turbo's EFI/Turbo setup on an all-stock motor '96 ZX-11
(w/oil bypass).  It has 30lb. injectors, the large turbo, an MSD MC-3, V&H
Pak w/turbo prom, and the EFI brain box.  Last dyno just before Daytona,
255.6 bhp and 135.6 ft./lbs. torque and it's still a great "sport touring"
