I am in quite a dilemma at the moment, I have just put together a worked 202 to go in my VK Commodore, the engine is as follows;
- Roller Rockers
- ACL Race Series Pistons (60 thou bore)
- Stage 3 Cam
- High Volume Oil Pump
- Electronic Ignition
The problem I am now facing is deciding on whether to go with the original EFI or convert my VK to Carby (I have a reco 350 Holley ready to go). Has any body had to make this decision? Can anyone give me some advice or pro's and con's of there builds? Just can't make up my mind.....
Anything would be much appreciated!
Thanks

Hmmmm, fair point sam5l the car is still pretty gutsy at the moment even though its seen better days... But that leads me to wonder, will the EFI run with all the engine work? I've heard some people say it won't yet I've seen a VK for sale that has the same work done and runs fine (looks 100% original under the hood), although I'm unsure if they've altered the computer?
