    which one did you score? there are a few variances and different kits... one that you program w/ a laptop? That is a whicked good deal!!!! I'm jealous. The 950 is way more then your stock q-jet and they say that the Holley FI's will support up to 600 hp or so,

    I bought the first version they came out with in a 600 cfm and hated it. Every time I changed altitude I had to adjust the mixtures to make it run decent. I also went through three fuel pumps. One went while I was hunting and the closest town was about 60 miles away. I have heard the programmable version is much better, but I still would never do it again. The 900 cfm is way too much for a stock small block, and you'll not have any throttle response at all.

    Opinion? Ok, here is mine. No facts or experience, just opinion. [​IMG]

    I won’t run a Holley anything. I've never fooled around with their injection stuff so I could be wrong about them, but I have fooled around and wasted many, MANY hours fooling with those carbs back in my armature drag racing days. I've tried my best with various Holley carbs at 3 different times and had bad experiences every time. But, that's just me. Some of the guys I raced with swore by them and claimed I just didn't know how to work on a Holley. Guess they were right. I think they were sacrificing chickens on a full moon...
