Holley is making a Sniper EFI in a 1 barrel configuration now, it will be available mid September. It's made to replace the Autolite 1100 carb used on many Blue Oval inline 6 cars and trucks.

Does anyone have an idea if this could be a viable option for our brand?

Why not? Adapter for the base and fabricate the throttle linkage.🛠

Impressive. Sound like it is only rated up to 200 CID and 175 HP.

* Designed with a mounting flange to fit the intake manifolds that originally had Autolite 1100 carburetors installed.

* Applications include 1963 – 1967 Inline 6 Cylinder Ford engines, from 144ci to 300ci.

*Such engines were commonly found in Mustang, Falcon, Fairlane, and various Ford trucks.

*Throttle body mounted ECU – no extra boxes to mount

* Supports up to 175 HP with One 100lb/hr Injector

"only rated up to 200 CID and 175 HP"?

Only? (oops - we are in The HiPo Shop)

Wouldn't a 1-barrel General Motors TBI system be another option? The computer, sensors, and wiring harness aren't all that difficult to adapt, and there should be plenty of donor vehicles available at virtually giveaway prices.

This is what I've been considering for my '61 pickup:

Holley Sniper EFI 2GC Small Bore Fuel Injection Systems 550-864K [summitracing.com]

It would require an adapter plate.

What carburetor woes? I replaced the TBI on my daily driver with a carb and haven't touched it for 20 years. Still starts and runs perfectly - no bog, no hesitation, no cold start difficulty, etc. I changed my plugs the other day; they were still a nice light brown color. And if my carb ever does need tuning, all it takes is a screwdriver instead of some computerized tuning module bouncing around in the glovebox and getting lost. No TPS, no O2 sensor, no external wiring, no high-pressure lines required. Maybe someday my carb will need a rebuild...that should take almost until lunchtime. But I can afford lots of lunches with the $1000 I saved over an aftermarket EFI system.

Lots of misconceptions out there. Silly kids today are as mystified by carbs as oldsters are by EFI.

I'm in the process of installing a Sniper 2300 on my latest project. I have to say that it could not be any easier. The only major issue on retrofits is the fuel system. The Sniper requires ~60 psi fuel pressure. All the rest is plug n play. I'm anxious to see the "self learning" feature.
