Re: EFI or Carb for my 352
Well, they all seem to be plug'n'play in less than half an hour in all the installations I've seen on TV.
On a cool day you should be able to see an exhaust leak, at least at cold start. The O2 sensor would go a little down stream of the pipe to manifold connection, so that joint should be easy enough to seal. Maybe you could get good reliability from a new carb, for a fraction of the price of an EFI conversion. My car starts and drives great to the point that I don't know if EFI would make it any better from a reliability and usability perspective.
