I'm seriously considering taking my zed back to carbs.
It's an EFI L28 and the reasons for wanting to go back to carbs is really just for the simplicity and cleaner look
It's just running standard 280zx injection. I'd only be going to twin carbs at the moment and have got a couple of carbies but need a manifold.
Money's really tight at the moment so triples aren't an option.
So what's everyone's thoughts ?
Do I persist with tidying up the EFI or go carbies?

You're not really going back to carbs as they were EFI to start with.

You have to source the carbs, then fuel for low pressure, then you will need to have the cars made to work with an L28.

Not really sure if it's ideal when money is tight.

I went from Efi to carbs, it wasn't that hard; but small things add up quickly.

I meant the L28 was efi to start with  :P

I guess you would still have the bits from your old L26 so you're going to save a fair chunk of money

You can strip alot of the manifold for a cleaner look if that's all your after .
