Is EFI worth it?

I have an 86 CJ-7. Currently I have a Weber Redline High proformance Carb installed. I am looking into moving into EFI. If I decide to I will have it Installed by the Hesco, . Does any one have any comment on the pros or cons of moving to EFI and on Hesco?

HESCO knows their stuff. They used to build Bobby Allision's motors when he was running Winston Cup. Go into their shop and you will see unbelievable cars. If you can afford EFI, then by all means get it. Running hills is a lot easier and your motor will run a lot better. I don't know of any cons with fuel injection besides the costs. Looks like Shula signed the contract today. Hopefully he'll pan out better than the last 3 coaches.

Since Hesco makes the Mopar MPI kit, I think that they would be a great place to have the install done. I know that they were really helpful to me when I would call them with a question when I was installing mine. The pinging problem that was discussed in another thread is one potential problem. My biggest problem is the the throttle is really touchy. You touch the gas pedal, you jump. It makes controlling the throttle a little tough when I'm trying to creep over something.
