I agree with everything you said Randy, the trouble is that I have yet to run across anyone who has optimized thier CIS and then, with no engine changes, swiched to EFI. There is no exact comparative data.

Unfortunately sequentially fired fuel injection is too expensive for most hobbyists. Optimizing the CIS they already have is the best choice for the situation.

Fuel mileage can be greatly enhance in a CIS engine by straightening out the A/F ratio throughout the RPM range, from idle to redline. I don't have any data on track use but I know of a few modded 930s that get 21-24mpg on the highway. That is very acceptable for a hobbie car.
