Well, it wouldn't necessarily produce any more power than the twin Webers, it 
would just be interesting to play with.

The old Tecalemit Jackson injection was around in the 60s, but was constant 
flow, and you tailored the mixture by grinding the fuel cam on the throttle 
linkage - primitive but serviceable.  You needed a different fuel cam for 
each engine set up - change the camshaft, or raise the compression, and you 
needed a new fuel setting.

The modern stuff with O2 sensors do away with all the pain, but you are 
probably right, they wouldn't like to see it in vintage.  Of course a fuel 
rail and Bosch injectors would fit very nicely _below_ the Webers, where you 
can't see anything, and you could use the Webers themselves as throttle 

Forget I said that!
