feedback carb using arduino control

have been tossing around the idea of actually willingly installing a feedback carb on something like my highboy or falcon but rather than using all of the factory stuff strip it down to some essentials- tps sensor, map sensor, and o2 sensor, then write up a program to use an arduino controller to run it. mostly as an alternative to running alot more wires to even just do a TBI, plus I wouldn't have to set up a high pressure fuel system. hopefully taking advantage of a better understanding of what wasn't done right with these systems.

since most of the carbs were ran via pulse-width modulation, it shouldn't be too horrible to create a basic table that could slightly adjust the A/F ratio without going wild. any thoughts?

haha

if I had more finances and the know how ,when I first got my truck (and previous owner did butcher things ) I probably would have done that or re map a modern ecm

or renix it (I know it has a bad rep. but it is reliable and it does use simple ways of running) grounding and and owners who didn't know what to do
