Re: Opinions on EFI?
Well, a simple solution was the ones for the Terminator, NOT the mega-expensive Sniper disasters. I get all sorts of horror stories from all sorts of people, owners, people working in the business that have installed all sorts of EFI systems, and ALL of them are fit to be tied irritated with the Sniper and FAST Go idoicy. then, there is no follow up with parts to make other than GM and MSD small distributors workable, that is left to people like me, as nobody else wants to figure it out for use with a Ford, MOPAR, even the International Harvester ones I have just figured out without adjustable rotors. Some people actually want to run a stock looking distributor in other than a GM engine.
One person seeking a solution to use a system on a GM engine just sent me the link to the install sheets from Holley. He has a shop that has done over 1K installs of various after market EFI systems, with no problems, and he is just mad crazy it is so backwards with the Sniper. He wonders why Holley didn't leave the Terminator system ignition setup in place, so it will work without massive hassles.
I used to work at Holley, and I am a friend of Doug Flynn, the person that has run the EFI department for a few years, great fellow, extremely knowledgeable.
Anyone remember the last ongoing "you installed it incorrectly, that is why it doesn't work" fiasco that still goes on, and, on, and...on? PerTronix Ignitors. NOPE, they ARE NOT an HEI, either.
