    He is on the Holley EFI Group on Facebook, and goes by Los Vasquez-his phone # is 561-644-0896, and he is super nice/helpful-he can help with any Holley product-
    Closer to Home, Brock Lesner at Absolute Performance in West Jordan is a Holley EFI Dealer/Tuner (and has a Chassis Dyno), but I had a few issues getting an appointment with him-hope this helps, and I look forward to seeing your Truck in person at local Shows!
    Thank you, I appreciate the info, we are hopefully fixing it right now so I have my fingers crossed we don't need to do that just yet. I hope we get to start sharing it soon, I'm ready to be away from the shop, having fun and socializing, we haven't committed to anything yet except Cache Valley, just need it to be right. When we drove it the other day, everything felt pretty good except the sniper issues.

    Kind of a run down.

    Bought first sniper early in the build back in 2016, by the time we even got to firing it up recently it had not been tested, ended up having a bad driver (as they tell us) giving us a bad 35.6 02 reading from the first fire up and every one after. So at this point I am out of any warranty, I would have pay to have Holley fix it and wait 4-6 weeks, so to get this thing on the road I just purchased another sniper and we swapped them out, also not realizing the sniper 2 would just take a little extra work to put on.

    So we get the replacement on and it has 02 readings but they are all over the place and it kept shutting itself down (Red screening/no data). Of course we have data logged and documented what we did on every change and sent to Holley techs, phone calls etc. I ended up calling Summit the other day, they was cool and are letting me send that Sniper 1 back and I just payed the difference.

    So here we are today. You can see the changed injector locations and ECU location, also took off the fuel pressure regulator.

    So we have to redo some fuel line stuff and mount a fuel pressure regulator, building a bracket for that, we already pulled the touch screen and replaced with the new one, we're going to modify the throttle cable bracket, it comes with a plug that allows us to plug into the sniper 1 wiring. We are also going to relay the pink wire. Still waiting on AN fittings and some hose to show up, if we get that tomorrow I don't see why we can't have it all back together.

    Sounds like you're on the right track-I had an issue with the Bosch 02 Sensors (readings all over.too), changed them over to the NTK and it straightened right out-
    The original Sniper had a kind of dubious reputation, however from what I've heard the Sniper 2 has been a good unit-Hope it goes well for you-

    That's a problem with builds that take years, pretty much everything you buy is out of warranty by the time you run it. I was pretty worried about my rebuilt trans I bought, kind of scary not knowing if it will work or not. Fortunately seems Ok other than a slightly harsh 1-2. Hope you have it licked this time.

    Everything got swapped over, had to build a bracket for the fuel pressure regulator, modify the throttle cable bracket, rebuild some fuel lines, pull the screen wiring and mount the new one. So far so good, we are getting normal readings on everything, we still have a some engine noises we need to diagnose, I hope it's nothing like a collapsed lifter.

    Hard to say how long before we experience problems with the sniper 2.

    Now that we are getting better results with the Sniper 2 we have been running it and trying to pinpoint what our engine noise is that has been there since the beginning, triple checked valve lash.

    Already had to put a little fuel back in.

    Unfortunately I think we have a collapsed lifter, we are getting an oil analysis done to make sure we aren't having any bearing issues. I guess comp cams lifters are garbage. I hope it's just a matter of changing lifters out but I guess we'll see. Really sucks though.

    Here is probably around 80% throttle.

    I won't agree or disagree on your opinion of comp cams, but when I put a new cam in the 350 in my 76 Vette I went with Howard's and have not been disappointed. With the junk coming out of China these days I went with an old time cam grinder and would do so again. Good luck, though if one went bad I'd consider replacing all of them, Just my2$

    Yeah if we have to go changing lifters I am taking those comp cam lifters out.

    I wonder if air could be trapped in there, maybe more run time would purge it out.

    We did end up finding part of the problem, we did not put O-rings on the distributor shaft which was sending oil up the shaft instead of sending it to the lifters, adding O-rings quieted it down but we still have what sounds like a lifter tick. Might just keep moving forward and get some more driving on it, maybe it'll fix itself, also keep trying to identify where and why.

    I took it out for a bit and it's exciting to drive.

    Still hearing what sounds like lifter tick yet everything seems to be functioning properly, moving forward, hope it'll clear itself up. Gonna try and hit Idaho next weekend for its first show.

    Alignment done.

    Also found another clearance issue.

    Not sure what we're gonna do here, the other side dragged on the bed panel but didn't get hung up like the driver side.

    U know a lot of folks use a stethoscope to isolate noises, but I prefer the old tried and true 3 or so feet of wooden broomstick. Over the years I've found a few odd noises that way.

    Engine stuff might just be how it sounds, got some good alone time in yesterday out on a few trips around town, it rides really well after dialing in the coilovers. We'll get her loaded up in the trailer and hit Malad on Saturday. Roy on Sunday.

    Good to have her home finally, still need to go back and give her another polish after messing with the engine stuff.

    Made it up to Idaho.
