Ha. I can make more power with a carb than most can make otherwise. Trust me.It's simple. For less money.
The EJ25 is already fuel injected so converting to a carb costs money.Not to mention all the tuning issues with a large carb or multiple small carbs. Not to mention the immense popularity of the subaru engine means than a computer can be cheaply ordered for any power level you want. One advantage to carbs is it is much easier to run LPG which might be why Phizinza is interested because LPG is much cheaper than gas.
To truly make power with a 4 cylinder engine it requires boost of some sort,Carbs SUCK for that. You can make power without boost but it usually means ultra high revs.If you claim to be able to make power post some pics and videos of 2-2.5L engines THAT YOU MADE making 200-250 HP. A 250HP non turbo engine cost a serious amount of money to make so your argument is invalid about making more power for cheap.
Hell even a 32/36 weber on an EA81 doesn't make that much more power,It just helps the bottom end and gives a little extra fueling up top to reach stupidly fun RPM.However, to make more power with an EA81 a SINGLE PORT FUEL INJECTION is installed which gives it alot more power.
If any sort of fuel injection is installed it is really easy and cheap to make much more power,not only that but reliability.Just jump in the car and turn the key and it will start.No messing with the throttle,no messing with a choke,no adjusting the carb when you drive to mountains..
