carb or fuel injection

i have to do a head gasket on my 460 fuel injected motor and i was wondering if swapping for a carb would be a downgrade or a upgrade the one my buddy pointed out to me is a stock carb and intake or would i have to do more than just the carb and intake like distributor etc?

You also have to change the heads on ur motor for the intake I personaly would go carb I like the simplicity and the fact you can gravity feed it to get home but it's personal prefference

injected=better perforemance/mileage, and runs on more of an angle than carbed. only thing good about carb is simplicity.

fuel injection failures 99% of the time are because of poor upkeep. So to go to such lengths as to pull it out is stupid if your worried about it go to the same lengths to do some preventative maintenance on it and keep it and enjoy the obvious benefits of it.

On this note:
go out and get a STOCK setup.. aftermarket stuff is cool and all.. but

STOCK IS RELIABLE.

I have no problems with my fuel injection fuel filters are new etc so I'm not worried about it failing was just wondering if I got that intake and carb if I could gain horse power possibly maybe getting an aftermarket carb but now I have no desire to change it over
