So I ended up going with a dominator EFI for my fox and man there is so much to play with... any of you tuning these yourselves?

I also got the 7" dash and have been playing with the gauge layouts.

These systems aren't that hard to tune. Use a wide band air fuel gauge to get 12.5:1 wide open and 15:1 cruise. Then throw a lot of timing at it under light load and cruise to get better fuel economy and throttle response. Broad timing control is Holley EFI's big advantage over carburetors.

These seem to have passed up the fitech kits I was looking at a few years ago. I also want to dump the Holley in favor of an EFI system.

I’m running the Pro-M EFI, absolutely love it, have done zero tuning on at least 4 different setups now. Car starts, idles and drives perfect, not sure if tuning is involved with the Holley stuff.

Super clean a nylon brush and heavy rags can still make your engine bay look good. The engine looks great. What's in the place of your power steering pump? It looks to draw vacuum.

Programmed an auto meter temp sending unit for the trans so I’m still kind of working that out.

Nice, how big of a pain in the ass was the fuel sending unit?
