You would only be talking a few HP either way at most and that's if the carb is tuned perfectly, That being said I would have to give the edge to EFI not because it makes more power than a properly setup and tuned carb but because it's ability to keep fuel ratio more consistent as weather changes that a carb isn't capable of.
Not true at all .If carb close it will adapt with the weather to some extent.Efi has to be programmed to what the guy thinks it will need.I would take a good carb tune guy over a efi guess it guy any day of the week.We have tried every efi under the sky and always went faster with carbs.Not just once but always!!

Clearly, you haven’t worked with Mike Thompson. I could guarantee he’ll make more power with Holley EFI vs any carb you can throw at him.
Clearly if I did I would be throwing tbs @ him because my carbs would still out run it!!!We have clearly spent 10s of 1000s on that garbage and efi gurus.And we are clearly done with that efi garbage

So you yourself have used all these systems and tuned them yourself? Or someone else does it for you?


For example, Your first run is at noon and it's 90* with high humidity and sometime during the day a front comes through and the temp is now 80* and low humidity, Exactly how does the carb compensate for weather changes by itself?

Why does one have to guess? The Holley system will run the fuel ratio you asked it to? You want 11.0:1 at wide open throttle, You program it and it uses the o2 sensor and computer to adjust fuel to get there, it will continue to adjust as the weather changes, you do nothing.
We have bought and used multiple systems had supposed some of best gurus in efi work on them,we have have dynoed multiple deals and learned them ourselfs.Still back to carbs every time!!!

Maybe you should hit mike up,Our shit runs what the dyno says!!Maybe he can save yours!

Someone has never heard of "closed loop"
Sure I have.Keep using it to make changes and you keep slowing down.It cant predict track or air .So once again carbs will compensate for small changes.Every round guys dicking around with laptop.Carbs we are not !
