I donít want massive power (yet) but Iím tempted by wet manifold injection for my turbo build.
The one thing I do want is great throttle response (albeit with a little turbo lag).
Can anyone with injection comment on response compared to an SU?

I doubt you'd notice any difference,

tbh injection should be better, as when somthing changes the ecu should react faster than the carb/dizzy.

Joe, do you have a photo of your tool?

If either are properly tuned, you will never notice a difference.

speed didn't kill me, but taxation probably will

As both Joe and Stevie say, if you do it right you shouldn't see much of a difference.

It all depends on how much you prefer filing SU needles to multiple profiles, playing with different dashpot springs, playing with oil damper viscosity, trying to alter weights and springs inside a distributor...

Or just typing a few numbers into a laptop...

SchrŲdinger's cat - so which one am I ???

Many years ago I bought an Avonbar high boost needle... so I naively thought I'd just be sticking that in the turbo SU when I rebuild it and not doing mch tuning after that!
After a 20 year restoration I should probably just focus on getting the car on the road and the SU might be the quicker option. Having said that, I'm seriously tempted by injection.
