If the myths you wish to dispell are old wive's tales of EFI goblins then by all means that is a worthy thing to do. Knocking CIS however is not. You can promote selling and tuning EFI systems without bashing CIS. They are two different worlds and there should be respect for both.

A buddy of mine just finished what I consider to be an incredible project involving EFI. He purchased a stock Corvette, rebuilt the engine, added a supercharger, then meth. All of that required an extensive EFI re-map.
The results are stunning:
> less than $30K total spent including the price of the car
> 1000+HP
> 28mpg highway
> daily driver with no hint that anything is under the hood
> how about 1/8 mile in the high 5's and 1/4 mile in the high 8's, then drive to the beach with the top down?

I mention this build so you see I completely undertand the capability of modern engine management.
