    I met a guy that wrote a magazine article about this kit when it came out. He installed it onto his Chevelle and was very happy with it. I am checking to see if I still have the magazine article. Of course he received it for free....lucky bastard. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    If you can afford the price, it is not too bad of a deal, since you get everything complete, it is all new, and should be very reliable.

    I wouldn't want a Holley unless I had ALL the parts available for spares.

    I think a better unit would be an OEM GM (other known manufacturer) FI system. That way, when your in the backwodds, you don't have to pay for a helicopter to come in and drop off a Holley Fuel pump.

    If it was a Fuel pump for a GM computer (say 93-97) you can walk to your local Kragen, Napa, Check's etc. and ask for a fuel pump from a '93 CHevy - and they just MIGHT have it in stock.

    However, if this is for a street car/truck.... go for it!

    <font color="blue">I do not see an O2 sensor or any mention of closed-loop capabilitys. For about half as much money, you can get a factory EFI setup that will outperform this.

    I run that exact set up on my truck.I wish I would have done it along time ago.The best thing about it is that it is easy to install.You can tune it to your motor;headers,cam,heads,tranny,gears,etc.As far as replacement parts go Kragens stocks the FI and all the parts and there open 7 days a week.(at least in my home town.) /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    My experience with Holley products is very poor. I had a TBI fuel pump that it took them 2 months to decide if it was bad. They then offered to replace it under warranty. Yeah - right... I'll let my truck sit there for 2 months while they take apart a TBI fuel pump to try and prove it failed because of something I did. I took the refund.
