A customer of mine from work is a mechanic and installs a lot of the throttle body kits in his customers cars. He has installed quite a few FITechs, Holley Snipers, and some FAST systems. He says the one he has the least problems with is the Sniper. He did install one of the old Projection kits on his motor boat (and quickly replaced it with a FAST setup). The Snipers are a huge improvement.

His big gripe with the FITech is that the wiring loom is a mess, the Holley has it all in a harness and it stays a lot neater.

After I get some home projects out of the way I might try one of the Holley systems out.

Holley does nice gear. Even their old Commander 950 Ecu was a capable unit. I’ve actually done the EFI course at Holley and am fitting their HP system to a non Mopar project. Can bus Comms to gauges, digtial dashes in a simple easy to use system sold it for me, but there are many other very competent manufacturers out there of course. Guys like Doug Flynn at Holley stand out, they are a very passionate group of guys and I understand why their units are so popular. You can’t really compare their old stuff to today’s offerings, light Years ahead!

I admit I have the opposite feeling about Holley. I bought a ProJection back in the 90s and it really was garbage. Also, the design of Holley carbs is pretty terrible (should have been left in the 1960s) in terms of ease of modification, messiness, etc. They are good for getting you to buy a huge number of tuning parts. However, I am happy to hear that these systems apparently have some nice points. Maybe I can work on or tune one sometime...

I’ve been having nothing but trouble with my 6. After it stared running crappy I swapped to rebuilt carb and it was okay... then stalling at idle... swapped the carb to a rebuilt bought off line and then found the manifold leak and another vacuum leak... fixed those but the new carb didn’t give me what I had before ... thus another carb I rebuilt and now I’m all over the place... can’t get the idle set or the mix set or the vacuum step up ... idles high but when I turn down it bogs out... I am super frustrated! I have been considering the Holley bbd for Jeep Cj but would need to make a throttle cable bracket. No way I want to go with a 4 bbl style.

If you have not adjusted the valve lash, do that before you touch anything else.

Best wishes,
Lou

Why spend that much money just to have a TBI system? If I were to go through the trouble of fuel injection tion I'd go multi port.

and that is my exact thought.

There are several companies that sell fuel rail extrusions, the tooling is available that will cut the injector seats in a single pass. With the right tooling and a simple fixture and a machining center, you have it made and will be on the road to MPFI

or

Gill Welding a Fabrication seems to be highly capable of helping on the hardware side of the project.

for an ECU, I run a MegaSquirt MS3 ECU, three years down that MPFI road, the MS has been rock solid reliable. When I have had questions the support forum at http://www.msextra.com/forums/
has always been helpful.
