The Mpi injection system is very easy to work with once you realise that the 13 or so wiring connectors and pipes can only fit one way. Stripping out the original injection system and fitting the upgraded one is very straightforward. Thankfully it started with the first turn of the key and I got to bring it for a short spin afterwards.

First impression is how smooth it's become and when dropped from 50 to third, it pulls really well in the mid-range. Definitely it feels like acceleration is also improved so overall I'm happy with the upgrades.

Sounds like a worthwhile upgrade!
