HIF4's flow a little better than HS4's and the integrated float bowl is
less prone to fuel surge.  However the biased needle design of HIF4's
(and late HS4's) will eventually wear out the jet tube.  Also, HIF4's
have that bimetal thingy (technical term) which can make your idle a bit
lumpy after hard driving (hot under-hodd temps).

I know you can convert from swinging to fixed needle if you're really
concerned about it (I wouldn't be).

So, I would keep what you've got.
