Holley Stealth Sniper EFI??

Does anybody have any experience with this EFI system? If so I'm interested in hearing your thoughts & opinions on it or from anybody that runs an EFI system of a different make & model. This Holley Sniper for a 4500 intake looks pretty attractive for what it can do v.s. the price. ...Or is there is something out there more suited to my car & motor.

..OK.. Thoughts & opinions please!!

Keep your carb. Add an A/F meter if you don't have one.

But why?? Because they ultimately make more power?? What are the other reasons to stick with a carb besides it is already paid for?

There were a couple of reasons I liked it besides the fuel injection itself.
1) Data logging
2) It has a built in ingnition system. I have a MSD 7530T ignition box and I would like to ditch it for a couple of reasons.

More cost and complexity with no gains in durability or performance. Why would you want to run one? It's not going to make the car any faster. They have their place, but an N/A drag car ain't it, imho.

I'd be happy to sell you one though. Best prices in town.

I'm with Carl on this for your build, simply not worth it.

On a side note, went to the local 1/8 airport meet, there was a guy with one on a chev small block......told me it made 711hp with carb and 710hp with the stealth, but said the street manners and throttle responce was amazing and it was the best thing he did for his street car.

He also took the cash prize with a win in his class.

It also say's it's for 800+hp, but this only made 710hp, so i guess it can be made to work.

I like the look of them, so just maybe one day i might go down this road aswell.

Cheers, Bob
