Default WTB carburetor to replace FADEC ignition system

I've been having issues with the FADEC electronic ignition and fuel injection on my RV-7A. I built the plane in 2004. It has a Superior 0-360 engine. I'm looking for a Lycoming part #71710. This corresponds to a Marvel MA-4-5 10-4164-1 carb. thanks.

Look at hartstocís post a couple below this thread. It will get you to a good place on your conversion if you want to go carb at a good price.

Hey guys, thanks for your input on this. After some consideration, I've decided to buy an overhauled carb from Marvel as well as new fuel pump. Yes, I pay more for that option, but for me it's just peace of mind.
