Are they just a carby thing or do EFI ppl use them?

Cheers

don't need one, but they will give you a stronger spark.
yeah EFI people use them, i've got a crane Hi-6 CDI on my thing.

pretty sure the EMS ecus work with the ford TFI so you don't even need a seperate ignitor, but you'd probably want to double check that.

Yes, EMS will run the factory TFI. Not sure how, but uses the pip signal.
