If they are way off, save yourself some headaches and get them out. Decide what you want to do, and get them on a dyno. It is going to be a PITA to tune them if they don't have O2 sensors in the headers etc. You will wind up running the crap out of the boat while trying to tune. You can't tune them at the same time and you can't load one WOT without the other...

Parker,
I would be glad to get them running for you. About 98% of the engines I build are efi. I am very familiar with tuning an efi engine. It won't cost a fortune if everything is there, which it sounds like. Quite the opposite, it actually shouldn't cost that much to just tune it. You just need someone that understands efi and how to tune it. Give me a call anytime and we can discuss your options and what it would approx. cost to get it straightened out. You can reach me anytime at 615-216-7449 shop or 504-416-3607 cell.
Eddie

Take SMiklos' advice and mine. Take it to Innovation Marine in Sarasota and have it done. Talk to Dennis. He is fair and reasonable. They know Holley injection inside and out. They used it on a lot of their engines. Its not that far of a drive for you and they are reasonable on their prices. The government doesn't contract them on their engines for nothing. They know their sh!t!

Also bring some "beverages". They really appreciate someone who is thinking of them and it shows when you need something later.

Ateco I believe. Hey TxHawk, didnt we just install some of that and, what, i cant remember what happened again!

Oh yea, bakc to the Skater, fought all the same issues myself. Holley throttle bodies except it was EFI technologies boxes. Make suer you are running a fat tune. THis can be adjusted on the bakc of the throttle bodies. TxHawk may rember what size alen hea was needed. Good luck

I have no doubt this isn't your first rodeo or hotrod boat. So yeah I'm sure you can carb it for simplicity b/c I'm the same way "its what I know best" But if you haven't totally given up on the injection yet and at the risk of sounding like I'm jumping on a "vote your favorite tuner thread" I gotta say its at very least worth your time to to give Eddie a call no matter what you do.... Besides he's probably still at the shop anyways..

Dont have EFI but Inovation built my blower motors and they have ran great and been trouble free (so far). They are a great group of guys.
Im sure at this point who ever straightens it out for you is going to be a Hero! good luck
