sniper and dual synch dist?
I have the Holley Sniper on and decided to go with the Holley dual sync distributor...nothing cheap about it either. I got it running with an older HEI dist. that I had left over from another project. It doesn't run well at idle/light throttle. Hauls butt when I kick it hard, though. I think there is just too much RFI with the HEI dist. If I had known that I would have to spend this much money to get the sniper going good, I would have just stepped up to the Terminator efi instead. It can be run with an older TFI dist. I think I will let the Sniper do the dist. timing but I do have an Al6 cdi box that I want to wire in after the latter. Anyone running this setup? I would like to know if I will run into any crazy problems with this. It's frustrating to have problems with the $999. Sniper and then have to spend another $400 on their distributor. I have watched the video on the dual sync setup. It's kind of crazy to have to set the dist. at 50 deg. BTDC just to start with...
I really think that Holley could have done a much better job of shielding the Sniper from RFI interference. Duh!
I'll drop the new dist. in this weekend and maybe I can help anyone else that needs info after this on the Sniper setup. Kind of neat to be able to "Program" the efi setup. Will go to a much bigger cam eventually than the original 5.0 HO engine cam. Roller cams are not cheap either! Damn, is there anything cheap about Mustangs and Motors? Mustang and engines = $$$$$$$$
