Carbs continue to make more power than port injection. This is because the fuel is introduced further upstream. The fuel then pulls the heat out of the air as it vaporizes in the manifold and this results in a cooler, denser mixture and more power.
I think the key here is that carbs make higher PEAK horsepower, but as far as power under the curve, port injection makes more power.
