From what I have seen if you are going for serious power a single plane manifold is the way to go. Some people(cough DJ) had issue with dual planes. Tune ability wise it is excellent.
I have heard the Fitech doesnt have the same issue, possibly due to where the MAP is read from. Mind was just a vacuum port, and the FItech has it in the bore.

I ran MSDs atomic EFI kit on a 1972 318 Duster and itís quite amazing. I think it does better than the Fitech systems as far as the response Iíve felt between both systems. And I also like that the MSD system doesnít require a return system for the fuel. And it looks amazing.

I can't believe this is the first time I'm hearing about it. It seems it's all Fitech or Holley Sniper. How long has the MSD solution been around and what else do you know? I need answers! lol

Well I know itís a great system. Specifics of course can be found online. But theyíre got a couple different variations of the kit of course and different accessories. I will for sure being going with the MSD kit when I get to putting a motor and fuel system in the coupe, whenever that is hahaha

Initial research says that trying to run it with a returnless fuel system is dumb. Add up the parts it takes to make it a return system and it's suddenly about the same price as others or more. Apparently the support isn't as good as Holley either.

My interest in this system is mostly around having an MSD Billet distributor and 6AL box and I've been getting mixed messages on if that is compatible with the Holley Sniper.

Edit: sorry for the thread hijack, Scott.

It's been around a long time, and I hear good things from those that venture outside of the normal few to try it, but they had some bugs and issues early, and IIRC the auto tuning system that they originally had was lacking a lot.

With the system operating with a PWM pump makes the system what it is. I would see an issue only depending on hour horsepower demand. Higher horsepower id be using a return system. So I guess itís gonna depends on your power needs.

A friend just put a Holley Sniper on his 62 Mercury Wagon, it is running but has not been on the road yet due to transmission issues. He is also using an MSD distributor and 6AL or similar, and he should be able to adjust timing from inside the car.

Any fuel mileage updates? Or system reliability issues?

I've started carb to efi swap research this week. Currently I'm leaning towards the MSD Atomic EFI since I already have an MSD distributor and 6AL box.

The holley sniper's software is the same or similar to the other holley offerings, once you get the usb interface. That's a big plus in my book.

I know this isn't the correct place to put this but I'm contemplating selling my FiTech kit if anyone is interested. I need to free up some $ and this is just not practical for me right now since I still have a list of things I want to get or do to the truck.

If anyone is interested I'll post up details.

Which kit and how much? I will never put another carb on an engine after flipping to fuel injection. It just works now, every time. No more modern fuel issues, still shitty mileage but that's a big block in an 18 foot car lol.

This one. And I think I could let it go for $1150. It's all brand new in the original boxes.
