Gene, I started this thread to discuss the NEW Fuel injection systems that are out there now because i plan on buying one and am looking for info on these. If you want to continually talk about your old system, your scavenging through junk yards and how you are an old ET from vacuum days. Start your own thread and talk about it there PLEASE.

Dean did he happen to say what the problem was? over at the other site several guys are using the Holley set up with no problems. I am leaning towards FAST EFI set up myself.

Sorry as he gave up trying, I guess he really did not sort out the problems getting it to run correct. All I can say is there are too many wires in the system.If I were to go this route I would probably go with the Fast system, it looks the easiest to sort out.
Good luck in what ever you go with.

Kevin, the Holley Commander 950 is an older system, one of the first MPFI systems to come out. While there should have been no reason for failure, it can be a challenge to setup and tune. The newer Holley EFI system is far superior and much easier to install and tune. From personal experience, it is much better than the competition. I am using it on my new aluminum Dart 540 build and am very pleased with all aspects including support. Support has often been the knock on FAST. If you want, I can probably get you a deal on one though my friend and owner of Competition Marine Center (CMC) up in Moscow Mills Mo. They are a Certified Dealer / Installer of Holley EFI. Let us know here on the forum of your progress which ever direction you choose.

FiTech is coming out with a new TBI fi unit for $995 4 injector complete system and $1495 for an 8 injector system on March 1st. It has a few nice features that FAST doesn't have. Not many wires to connect as well. I have emailed them asking if all parts are made in America and how big the fuel command centre is. They are going right at FAST, MSD, Edelbrock and Holley TBI systems. A great price point, will wait on reviews.
Of course our Cdn $ has tanked.
