    Looking for someone that has done the Holley EFI swap. What fuel tank, regulator, pump, etc, did you use?
    Any experience in this conversion is appreciated!!

    I swapped in a Holley Terminator EFI a few years ago and I'm very happy with it. It's pricier than some of the newer systems like FiTech or Holley Sniper but I think it's worth it. The ECU is fully tunable with a PC and the free Holley EFI software and if you venture in to multi-port EFI in the future all you'll need is a new harness. I used a stock tank that I drilled for an Aeromotive Stealth 340 in-tank pump (you can buy a fully loaded tank from Aeromotive, Rick's, Holley, Tank's Inc if you prefer). I also went with an Aeromotive regulator rated for EFI pressures. The Terminator is a return style system so you'll have to add a return line if you don't already have one. The Terminator prefers a single plane intake although I used an Edelbrock B4B and it ran fine. Just make sure you grind down the plenum divider or use an open spread bore to square bore adapter.

    Bill, thank you for the reply. I am currently trying to finish this swap but have ran into an issue. We went with the Tanks Inc tank with an in-tank Holly pump. The issue is when I go WOT the car looses fuel pressure and I was hoping someone else had experience with this. Based on what I am reading and talking to other people we have done everything that should have been done. There is something that I am missing, just have not found it yet.

    I had the same issue on the chassis dyno causing me to cut that short until I diagnosed the problem. I determined the in-tank fuel pump I was using, a 200 lph Walbro, was too small. I swapped in a 340 mph Aeromotive and the problem went away. Do you have your fuel pressure regulator referencing vacuum? If you do make sure you are showing "0" vacuum at WOT on a vacuum gauge. If you still have vacuum at WOT and your pressure regulator is vacuum referenced you won't be getting full fuel pressure at WOT. Also, do you have the regulator on the return side?
