    v8 swap:fi or carb?

    Planning on swapping a v8 in my Colorado just debating on carb or fuel injected or maybe finding an old flathead motor, pros and cons? And how diff would it be to swap either?

    Should bolt right in. I personally prefer fuel injection due to slosh and lag depending on hp.
