Interesting indeed. The price point will likely be the determiner of success or failure of this venture provided the system(s) work [and I have very little doubt that they will.]
I know people who'd give their eye teeth to have a fuel injection system on their SY series cars even though I'm not one of them.

Been driving Tootsie the last few days. Starts instantly, runs quite well. As I have grown familiar with the SU carburetor my opinion has increased to the point I confess to being blown away with how good a carburetor it actually is. My previous experience is with fixed venturi units like Holley and Weber so it took a while to wrap my head around the genius of their piston controlled variable venturi design. Count me as a convert. However, all that said, there's a lot to go on about when it comes to FI as well so I, for one, will be interested in seeing the price point of this new SU product.

It got me thinking, while my engine is in bits all over the floor, now would be a good time to make a trigger wheel and fit it, plus knock up the bracket to hold the sensor.

Make sure your engine mounts are Ok, they have been know to collapse due to oil leaks.
This link may help as I have been looking into injection on a engine fitted with Zenith carbs.
Going with a motor bike set up as the engine does not have inlet manifolds.

There is also this option from Jenvey
They do an adapter for fitting an SU.
