carb vs efi brutes

alright guys i have an 06 750, doing stock bore high comp pistons now(just cause it was down with timing chains, so figured it was a good time) hmf swamp series exhaust, snorkled (mimb), thinking of going to a 3" inlet on the air box

my question is this, i found a complete efi setup on highlifter. was thinking about converting mine over. can you guys tell me any pluses or minuses. do i need a box for just a muffler and snorkle? also does it pull timing like the carb bikes do?

i didnt like the efi on my kq750 i had, it was very hard to start in the cold, but most of the time it ran great after it started, but was super lean with just a snorkle job. I also hated the bottom end lag, will an efi brute be like that without some kind of box on it?i have a dynatek on the bike now

wonder could i sell my carb stuff to make up most of the difference in the cost, he has everything from tank to throttle bodies, stator, wiring harness etc....

i know i like the pre 08's better as far as the bike, i know the 08's sit lower and stuff like that, i have no lift and dont plan on a lift, i only run 27's

The main that deters me from EFI is all the sensors & that $400+ fuel pump.

Its going to cause more headaches trying to convert from carb to efi. If you going to hi comp motor you'll need bigger injectors also. Then you will need something to tune it with.

Imo I would stick with carbs and it would be less of a headache
