So after some looking around I think holley sniper would be best for me, thanks for the great info. I was looking at the holley sniper efi 2300 self tuning kit(550-849). It's only $850 right now and seems like a good deal and it comes in 2bbl. Comes with a adjustable tuner type thing tooI'm going through the same thought process for my 302. Yes, there are at least 4 great options that I have come to understand exist:
1. The edelbrock Pro Flo-4, which includes a new intake manifold that is pl;umbed for individual injectors into each cylinder, and includes fuel pressure regulator, computer AND a new distributer -- deluxe and well-acclaimed by many -- price is about $1800.
2. The Holley Sniper: a throttle body injection system, also very highly acclaimed by users. It includes the TBI and computer. You provide the 4-barrel intake manifold. Users state that customer support is THE BEST, and that it is VERY important. I think it's about $1200.
3. FiTech throttle body system, with computer -- I think it's under $1000; I have seen many complaints about problems with this system, and problems with customer support. You provide a 4-barrel intake.
4. Summit's own TBI system, with computer -- very similar in system to FiTech and Sniper, and around $650 -- you provide new intake manifold (since you have a 2bbl manifold (needs 4bbl intake). No input yet on how good their customer support is.
Once again, everyone claims that CUSTOMER SUPPORT is VERY important, because there are innumerable small problems specific to your installation.
That's all I know so far.
Check Vintage Mustang Forum for MANY threads about installing all of these, for example Summit Brand EFI
Just search EFI or Edelbrock or Sniper, etc.
This helps greatly. Thank you!I did a carb to EFI conversion about 3 years ago on my 351 Cleveland. At the time, there were less choices. My search began the year before. The FiTech was in my price range and I went with that. Here’s a summary of what I did and I’m quite pleased. Check notes at the bottom.
- FiTech 600hp EFI.
- Edelbrock Torker manifold for 351C intake.
My 351C had a Cobra Jet manifold. At the time I couldn’t find many aftermarket manifolds to accommodate the FiTech throttle body. As such, I settled on the Edelbrock single-plane Torker.
The motor sits in a Ford F100 longbed, therefore the gas tank was behind the seat inside the cab. The FiTech EFI system, as with most all systems at the time didn’t work with an old gas tank with old school fittings, etc. So, I yanked out the gas tank and purchased a fuel cell from Jegs and mounted it in the front of the truck bed, right behind the cab.
The Hard Part (at least for me)
There’s more, such as electrical wiring, heat wrapping, etc. but nothing overwhelming.
- Finding a compatible intake manifold in 2016.
- Replacing the intake manifold.
- Yanking the behind-the-seat gas tank.
- Installing the Jegs fuel cell in the bed of the truck and running the fuel lines, including return line.
- Installing the O2 sensor in the crossover pipe on the headers.
I remember visiting Earl’s quite often in order to replace my stock fuel system with A/N fittings in order to hook up the fuel cell with the EFI. If you have an OEM fuel delivery system in place, you may want to replace that with modern application components.
The electronic fuel pump that came with the FiTech kit delivers the fuel quite efficiently from the fuel cell, through the pump, to the throttle body. I’m pleased with the setup.
I’ve noticed that the system management interfaces are more improved than when I bought mine. But mine’s good enough to get everything dialed-in and working as desired.
Don't know if it still does, but the FiTech system used to come with a fuel canister so you could use your old OEM fuel delivery system. From what I recall from customer feedback they were a disaster. Do not get that option if it's still available.
My apologies in advance for any grammatical errors.
Good luck and I hope this helps!
