My carb has excellent throttle response. You should check out the "carb vs efi" information in the useful sticky thread. It will give you a better understanding of the pros and cons.

I'd disagree, I think that a proper EFI setup will have less lag (and more power) any day of the week at any RPM range. Carbs are just cheaper up front.

Let me clarify, I have nothing against carbs I just think that at the end of the day, EFI is less expensive in the long run, easier to tune, has more potential, makes more power and is more driveable. Also a good understanding of EFI will benefit you more in motorsports over your lifetime.

Efi will be better for fuel economy, drive ability in different altitudes, and better idle control ( cold starts)...carbs are more finicky and require a little more patience and knowledge.
