I assume the TBI that you bolt on, hook up a few things, and you are good.

I would love to get one of those setups but the price is to much for me.

One of mine has the tbi on it. Btw dangerranger. Used the holley pro-jection tbi kit goes for around $300. I have bought 3 this way.

Jacob, you are being extremely vague. Are you asking about holley 2bbl tbi? 4bbl tbi? Both of which bolt to any carb manifold. Are you asking about the holley HP, dominator, terminator, avenger, or commander when used with a holley MPFI manifold?

Or holley HP, dominator, terminator, avenger, or commander when used with a ford MPFI stock manifold?

"holley efi" isn't just one thing. It spans from the simple/primitive 2bbl tbi systems with an analog ecu. All the way up to complex digital systems with obdii capability, the ability to self-tune, the ability
To run 32 injectors sequentially, the ability to control boost, nitrous, propane, or methanol injection. The ability to control fuel/timing curves for each cylinder independently.

You see, its a broad variety. Not just one, or two

Pro jection came 1bbl, 2bbl, and 4bbl.

The more compleX systems like the dominator/commander etc. are also available with a much better 4bbl tbi, than the pro-jection too

im just talking rather broadly. im just talking about the whole shabang. say i put a 1980 5.0 in my truck and ran an electronic fuel injection by holley or edelbroc or whoever else mmakes them. just in general, 2bbl or 4bbl on the stock manifold, the stand alone ecu and the automatic tuning on how you drive, your altitiude your fuel, all of that. i dont know if you follow David Freiburger but the im talking about the holley efi type thats he has on his crusher camaro and his superbee. or if you watch street outlaws, murder nova's efi.

All of them above "pro-jection" for the most part will self tune. and all of them are available for use with TBI. for example the 950commander kit.


if you watch street outlaws,
I most certainly do not. that crap is a joke. but the discovery channel only puts out crap. its scripted, staged, and has less "real" aspects than pro-wrestling. back in the '90s people watched wrestling and believed that it was "real".

but nowadays a person would be considered "seriously retarded" if they were gullible enough to think wrestling is real.

I assure you, that people will look back at "street outlaws" in the same way

I was raised in that world, I lived that life for a while......you are watching a show that has a script.

*end rant. sorry, that show just gets me wound up on how 'tarded it is. and discovery/history channels in general for no longer providing fact-checked documentarys. but rather scripted docu-dramas that people mistakenly take as "real" because they are intended to appear "real"

After looking at the prices for a 4 barrel one, I think I will stay carbed for now.
