Making the EFI switch need a little info!

Tired of jacking with this quick fuel carb and going with the Holley Sniper and Tanks Inc tank kit.

Going on a 540BB with a airgap intake with a 7004 trans and was wondering if my current TV bracket will work or if there is a different one I'm going to need. Want to make sure I get the geometry right for the linkage.

If you're using the Holley 20-95 bracket -- no, it won't work with the Sniper. I tried.

I ended up using this one, https://www.summitracing.com/parts/fst-304147

Thanks for the info! Thinking about the Eldebrock Pro flow 4 also so I'm assuming it will work on the MPFI system too?

No idea.. you're going to have to test fit it and let us know!

I have a single-plane multi-port EFI intake that I wanted to use, but the different TV cable brackets I tried interfered with the fuel rails. But I never tried that specific bracket on that intake. With that said, I'd guess Edelbrock has some sort of throttle/TV cable bracket solution because they generally have well-designed stuff.

The FAST bracket I posted is only a few dollars cheaper than the Lokar ($62 vs $70), so both are are a little pricey. But based on the pic, I don't think the Lokar will work with a stock-type TV cable that requires a square hole.

You would think they would have some kind of info in the installation manual for different trans setups.

I believe it comes with the bracket. I want to say my pro-flo 3 did(I have the XT manifold).
I like the system, so far it has been super reliable and not really needed anything other than for me to set idle.

BTO makes a bracket that works for a multitude of different carbs/TB's. I used it when I had a carb then TB EFI and it was flawless and easy to set.
