see dude any car you modify will hae more maintenance or problems than a stock one 9/10 times.
the carb b zen would be easier as less electronics and less programmimng/tuning headaches. but both are possible.....it all depends on how yuo maintain it.
for example i ahd an rd350 for a year and teh only maintenance i had on it was change of plugs once and change of oil. thats it!!! whereas i know guys who swear that it is not possible for an rd350.

it is not necessary that you have to run on mpfi...any engine can be run on carbs....it is easier and has quite a few advantages over mpfi...

HI,
Yes an engine can either run with carbs or injectors. Both serve the same purpose, by metering the fuel fed into the engine. Carburettors are devices which uses vaccum to calculate the amount of fuel to be fed into the engine. The carburettor uses jets to limit the fuel flow. The benifits of the carburettor are no fuel cuts, but the problem with carburetors is that they are not economical in means of fuel consumption. This is where the mpfi, pgfi etc step in. These use computers oxygen sensors etc to calibrate the amount of fuel flowing in. Complex computers read outputs of the oxygen sensors to derive the fuel ratio and if running lean or rich the computer will adjust the pulse of the injectors.

Both have their benifits and drawbacks, A carburettor system is completely simple, not much of a tuning head ache, if you get the right cfm flow and right size jets thats all you need. But the draw back is that by fine tuning more you can actually pull more power from an engine. This is where Programmed Fuel injection systems come in. They are more precice and with perfect tuning can get better results and be more economical.

Cheers
Dom

Talking Thanks , more discusiion welcome

Why I am askin all these questions is because I stay in hyd, any problems with the settings , i cant get it to bangalore often. Well totally agree with DOM and ICEMAN. Know the tech stuff said by DOM, but not that deap abt maintainance and power.

Purpose of Bzen , not FE but POWER.

which setup is more powerful. heard mpfis in zen stock are more refined and powerful(heard from someone)

I have a one year old zen 20k kms on it, didnt find much power though. So guys please help me out.

Ice you have a RD man , you rock!!!!!!!!Still waitin to get my Bzen; But lookin at comfortable practical side.

MPFi. Any day. Carbs do have advantages but now are out dated. MPfi is a better option according to me

vulken i have gone way overboard with my car. i wanted the best and so had to pay soem really high prices for it. i have spent close to 2lac on the engine on mods and gizmos. no NOS for that add another 35k. i dont think u need to spend that kinda money right now. can get similar performance for cheaper.
at the end of the day its your call...wanna spend no one is gonna stop you, but think if its really worth it.
