Default EFI wiring question/philosophy

I am wiring up my SDS fuel injection. I was planning on using some automotive style (Delphi) multi-pin connectors on the cold side of the firewall to connect everything to the engine. I could just unplug them if I wanted to remove the engine. Lots of cars do it similarly where they have plugs mounted on the engine so the engine can be replaced as a complete assembly, wiring intact.

I am wondering how practical or necessary this is on an airplane. Is the value this adds worth the additional failure points induced?

I have a lot of experience with DC wiring. I can crimp, and I can solder. I have done very large amounts of both. But I have never owned an airplane.

I ask this here instead of the electrical section because it is specific to EFI.

Thanks for any answers/opinions.
