For those that have done the swap, did you go with EFI or carb? Granted, the 351 is a beast in it's own right, but from a power perspective, what would put more down, or does it all depend on setup and other bolt-ons (headers, IM, exhaust, heads)? Any preferences from you guys?

I went carbed because I'm a dinosaur and hate new technology and don't know how to tune with a computer. Either carbed or efi could put down the same numbers with a proper build and properly matched parts. you can't just slap a cam carb and intake manifold on and expect 400 hp.

Of course strapping a part on won't get you 400hp. I was just curious to get feedback from those that have done it. I'm not a dinosaur, but I'm pretty slanted toward going carb it gives me the ability to make the adjustments vs plugging in a device to do it for me. Where's the learning/fun in that, right?
