The biggest benefit is cooling of the air. In f/i systems, the intake air charge is compressed, causing it to heat up. Use of a methanol/water mixture helps cool down the heated air. Even when an intercooler is used, injection can reduce air temps. Lower air temps produce more power. Increased octane from methanol can result in more power if tuned for it.

Noo offense but what you are asking is a little to high for me mike. I called a junk yard and they wanted $1700 for the engine. Im going to look for the cheapest option possible since I might have to pay for labor.

Oh I know, and no offense taken. You could tell me "Mike, you're f'n crazy, too much", and I wouldn't get offended. But this engine has practically no miles, is clean and has no wear, whereas a junkyard is, well, who knows how it was taken care of. If the engine had 50k miles on it, I would totally agree.
And, if you look around, you might find most of all of what you need for a swap, including trans, for 2k. I can give you the number of the guy in San Antonio who runs a shop and is where I got my engine and swap-stuff from.

No wear on the components. I've removed the valve covers, the cams/chains and related parts are like new. Much unlike other motors I've torn into. Plugs are clean and nearly new, no carbon. No exhaust carbon build-up. etc. etc.
(this discussion should probably be carried on in a different thread )
At first I was skeptical, but after looking at it closely, I can see that this is a new engine. I was like, "daaaamn! this f'er is still new!" Hence my reluctance to "dump it" for cheap. I may just use it myself

I'm going to aim for a swap within the next few years unless I find an exceptional deal on a supercharger witch dissent happen too often. I was reading on another forum that Jim c only paid about $2500 for his x charger extreme!! That was a hell of a deal!!
