You have an real experience with EFI? What exactly will reduce reliability?

I can be done for under $1000. And done well. Instead of using the kit this may be cheaper and easier to use. It will even autotune E85 with a sensor. If you look around the 'net there is tons of good info on homebuilt EFI.
you don't see luggage racks on a hearse..........act accordingly
