Howell TBI setups

I am going to be using a Howell TBI unit for my 1990 Wrangler 258. I am just kinda fishing for comments from people who have used this setup before. What are the likes and dislikes, things to watch out for, that kind of thing.
Thanks for all input.

the hubby installed the howell tbi on my cj7 a few months ago. i LOVE it. i have no dislikes about it at all. it had a carter carb on it and then he put the empi carb on it and it went from horrible to slightly less horrible. now that it has tbi it runs great and it is soooo much better when climbing hills and rocks. the only thing is that there is no snorkel (that i know of) that works with the TBI, but the hubby got creative with some plumbing supplies and that problem is fixed. he also mentioned how easy it was to install. he said the directions that come with the kit are great and make it even easier.
