I’ve been doing a little research, seems Holley has a pretty good package for EFI

But all in it’s pretty $$$ compared to a carb

Check out the Holley 550-501 kit. Read an article on it it can support what you are building....

I like the holley system, especially if you are looking at single injector per cylinder. Updates are free and it is easy to use. Best bang for the buck out there. You can use whatever components you want ( throttle bodies, injectors, sensors, etc..) and program it to run. I would suggest individual coils, you could probably get away with a hp system. Small billet atomizers and msd cam sync would get you going. (Guessing you already have a crank trigger?) Give it a target air fuel and a base spark map. The learn function works well. Within 5-8 passes you should be on point..

I have a Holley HPefi on my 460. Holley has a very good forum for tech help and it is typically a lot faster then calling the tech line and waiting for ever. I also have a Holley dealer locally which is the most important thing. I would call and see how far away your local dealers are. The reason I say this is because I have a friend who bought a FAST unit and had problems. He could not find anyone locally to help him with it and ended up taking it off after 9 months.

I used a cam sensor from Price Motorsports but there are a couple other brands out now. I also used junkyard LS coils. I had to make a crank sensor bracket. The trigger wheel comes as a blank and you have to drill the bolt holes. Support for 460's is weak but getting better. You can buy dual sync distributors now if you don't want to go with individual coils. Depending on your end goals you might want to look at the Dominator system as it has a lot more features.
