Default Roots blower guys check this out...FINALLY!

Just ran across this...I've been looking at going efi on my build ever since I started and figured it would cost between 4 and 5 grand for a single engine...holley is now offering the sniper self tuning dual throttle body setup for 2 grand...that's right 2 GRAND!!! That's cheaper than 2 good carbs...I might be a little overly excited about this but finally an actual affordable efi setup!!

SB, hogie roll, Gimme Fuel and 1 others like this.

That is way cool, but don't forget to budget, lines and fittings, pumps, filters, regulators and return line hardware

That's true...I figure for well under 3K you can be in this setup...return line and pump in my case would be the biggest thing as I already upgraded my lines and everything to support the blower upgrade. I just found this to be a steal of a price really and granted I'm sure there would be fine tuning involved but its coast guard approved and self learning to help take a lot of the guess work out of tuning.

A buddy of mine is a dealer up here, we help each other out. I'll ask if he can order and drop ship in the US
