Post Holley vs. Howell FI

I've got an '86 CJ-7, 258 (12,000 miles on rebuild), currently running the stock carb. I'm going to switch to fuel injection. Does anyone offer any experiences, good or bad with either system? Price, tunability, quality, etc... I think with the holley 501-12 kit I'll need to bypass the computer, what about the howell? Any input would be appreciated.

I just put the Howell kit on my 360. It was a fairly straight forward install and their tech dept. was helpful with a couple of questions that I had. It seems to be a quality system and uses mostly, if not all, GM parts. It has some driveability issues, but I am confident I can resolve them without too much difficulty.

On a side note, there are a number of web sites dealing with converting existing stock TBI systems. These can usually be had at wrecking yards for under 100$. Don't know if this is an option for you or not.
