Unless you want a HUGE learning curve and a lot of time spent tuning, I don't think this is the time to get into a do it yourself EFI system.

I couldnt have said it better myself, for the power, ease of installation, and reliability the new LSX motors brig to the table there is no reason not to go with it as long as the funds are there. 440hp to start with is nothing to sneeze at, and the LSX takes to mods very well if you get bored in the future. Good luck with the build
