No cons, throw the #0 into the scrap heap. Enjoy.

run no plate, its pretty much the same as running no plate then do the afc mods and rack plug to get full rack travel

a full forward 0 plate is the same thing as having no plate. Your running max rack travel possible with the current configuration.

Now, if you were to modify the AFC for more travel, you will benefit from having no plate!

The advantage of the 0 plate would be that the gov arm will contact the foot of the plate at low rpm so as to control to much fuel on bottom end a little easier.

the 0 plate is a straight up plate. no defueling at any point of the rpm range. If your making enough boost at 1500rpm to fully 'open' the afc, your going to get just as much fuel with a 0 plate as you would with no plate

The AFC is completely in control of max fueling

I don't agree with that. The afc is what allows more fuel with more boost and the plate limits the max it will allow. A 0 plate will do nothing at the bottom end because unless your making full boost the afc won't allow the rack to move that far anyway and if you did have enough boost then your going to want the rack to move farther so it can provide more fuel to keep up with the additional air from additional boost.
