I looked into Megasquirt about a decade ago and assume they are more advanced now. It looks easy enough but I was always bothered by the thought of one bad electrical connection and you are stranded. Mechanical systems tend to fail gradually where electrical systems fail instantly. I am sure that modern electronics have come a long way in their robustness.
There is a Megasquirt kit out for the 911SC which I also looked at to modify for use with the 930. Anyone interested in MS for the 930 should take a look at this too. The biggest expense may be the custom injector spacers.

Back to the original posting; realize that removing these faulty CIS components makes the system less user friendly. Arguably, a brand new 930 of yesteryear started and ran like an EFI 930 of today, when all the CIS components were brand new and functioning perfectly. I've worked on a few garage queens that operated in that manner. Layers and layers of CIS gizmos that all play a little part in making the operation of the engine seemless. Granted, EFI is a lot less complicated in appearance but do remember these cars didn't run bad when new.
