I imagine anyone who has had to put in the time and effort to do so, will agree, its not an easy process, niether is turbocharging in the big picture. I would by no means consider myself a novice, except for the knowledge of more primitive fuel management systems.
Please do not underestimate me and my "learning curve." i know exactly what to do with a stand alone unit. I can promise you that.
Google search or search for FMU here then. This information is easily attainable along with everything else you're asking. I feel as though you ARE jumping in without knowing what you're doing though. It's apparent in everything you're saying. Simplicity, no fine tuning, less hassle? Lol. I'm/we aren't trying to knock you, but I feel like you're about to waste a lot of money and end up with a shitty setup in the end. I had the same mentality 5 years ago, I ended up wasting money and not being satisfied.

Catch can is easy, no reason not to do it.
