    Thanks, Just installed a serpentine belt system (Vintage Air) vice the 3 belt system. a lot cleaner look but it's very tight between rad and fan. I'll post a pic later. I wish I was smart enough to understand all the EFI stuff with the Holley Sniper I have installed. It runs ok but I know it could be better.

    After my initial sniper install I took it to an experienced tuner. Over the Holley learned tune we picked up over 50 rear wheel horsepower and about 2 mpg. One of the biggest improvements I had made on my own was rechecking the tune setup program where I found several parameters were not right. Nothing beats building it from the ground up.

    Have you tried their tech service offerings? They have a online group and I know they have good call center. Even if you just called them to say, "Hey' I need some help with this" I'm sure they can give you some tips. I think RSpears had some good results from his interactions with a call center. Consider giving it a try.

    My experience was with Edelbrock, in their early days of DIY EFI and they were great, very helpful! I've heard mixed reviews on experiences with Holly & the Sniper, seems some love it and some not so much. I'd agree, if you can find a really good tuner in your area they can help dial in the maps and getting your base parameters for the self learn defined right.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    here's a pic of the new serpentine system, much nicer then the 3 belt I had. Still working on some small rattles and tightening up a few bolts as I put miles on it. yup the pic sucks, it was to be a video but I didn't do something right. I'll try again. Well after several attempts to post a video I give up, heck you all know what the thing looks like anyhow. Have a great week everybody!
