No by 6K I mean that is the limit I have to spend. I am not at all set on anythying that is why I asked.

Really? I did not know carbureted was more difficult than EFI. The reason I DID NOT want to go EFI was because I did not want to purchase a computer to handle everything. If you can tell me that EFI is not more expensive, and easier to work with than I am all ears. I think my understanding of EFI is not correct.. Like I said your local Moron here asking questions..
