best for what, andy?

the electronic fuel injection in stock tune is very reliable and very driveable. it adapts very well to changes of the season and runs great in cold and wet weather.

Yes and no at the same time.Carburettors make more power and torque, an they are pretty fun to drive but if youdon't use your car for competitions you should stick with the EFI because it's trouble free once you get it going. Carburettors will need adjusting every 10k and that would be the opinion of an optimist.Plus you car will have trouble passing the MOT because it will most likely fail the emissions test.

So, in my opinion, you sshould go with carbs only if you plan to race it often , otherwise , stick with the injection for trouble free operation of your gti engine.
