Also, the perfect tune-up is usually just a few keystrokes away, but it may take a while to get there if you're not careful. That's because it's just as easy to go way off base with your fuel map as it is to get the thing right in a matter of minutes. Holley has gone to great lengths to supply what it feels will be a reasonable fuel map for each particular EFI kit, but just like with a carburetor, there's always some power to be found with tuning somewhere. However, unlike tuning a carb with traditional jets and air bleeds, tuning EFI takes only seconds, and the results can be felt instantly. In the end, this stroker Mouse made some great power, and the fact that it idled incredibly smooth at just around 600 rpm points to its being a great daily driver. The throttle position sensor (TPS) goes on the side of the throttle body and tells the computer how far the throttle blades are open. This can be roughly translated into how much power your foot wants the engine to make.

It can also be programmed to turn on or off things like electric fans and bump up idle speed when you turn on your A/C, since it now knows how hot the engine is and how well it idles. The Holley ECU monitors coolant temp as well as both ambient and manifold air temp.

You might find it difficult to read at first, but it'll all make sense once you're trying to plug things in. Before randomly trying to figure out where each wire goes, sit down and read through the e Not only does EFI have lots of electrical connections, there are also lots of vacuum connections and even some vacuum connections that go to electrical connections! The Manifold Air Pressure (MAP) sensor is one of them. In non-boosted engines like this one, a 1-BAR MAP will always read intake manifold vacuum, instead of pressure. Not only does EFI have lots of electrical connections, there are also lots of vacuum conne Sitting to the left is Holley's EFI expert, Doug Flynn, who flew out to California to help us tune this thing perfectly. Dyno operator and co-owner of Vrbancic Brothers Racing, George Vrbancic, is actually pretty well up to speed on tuning EFI motors and was even able to show Doug a thing or two. Sitting to the left is Holley's EFI expert, Doug Flynn, who flew out to California to help Even though the Holley ECU controls the timing advance curve, you still have to set it first the old-fashioned way. We set ours to a max 36 degrees and tweaked the distributor's curve with the computer to get the best power. There are no springs or advance mechanism in the Holley distributor to wear out, either. Even though the Holley ECU controls the timing advance curve, you still have to set it fir We had to try one old hot rodder's trick to see if we could squeeze out more power. We swapped the Lunati 1.5:1 intake rockers with some 1.6:1-ratio rockers and found just a hair more power. We had to try one old hot rodder's trick to see if we could squeeze out more power.
