Holley Pro-Jection System

Looking into buying a Holley Injection setup for my Clevo.

Anyone got this setup on theirs? Pro's? Cons??

Re: Holley Pro-Jection System

it'll never be as good as multi point fuel injection, but anything like that is better than a carb really.
One of the guys in a club I am in has it on a XY .. apparently it tamed it down, made more power and made it drivable.

Re: Holley Pro-Jection System

Looking at the multi point setup they have, I wonder if a single TB or 4 little TB is more efficient??

Personally, i would use the pro-jection throttlebody and run it with something like wolf3D, Haltech, etc, etc.

The throttlebodies were advertised in Parts Peddlers for years at $495. They inlclude the injectors. The 950cfm unit is only rated to 500 hp.

Re: Holley Pro-Jection System

I like the idea of running Fuel Injection. Add that to a good electronic ignition system and there would be some very easy starting.

How much do you guys think it'll cost to setup? Obviously you need to have a elec fuel pump, computer and throttle body, but does the fuel lines need to be upgraded? Do you need to use a regulator?

The fuel line in my XB is plastic, is this suitable? Also the return line for the Charcoal Cannister is there, but the diameter is smaller. Can this be used as the return line?

Finally, how hard would it be for me to install? The installation shouldn't be a problem or the wiring, but how do I map the computer? Is it possible to drive the car on a default setting and then get it tuned correctly?

Thanks Guys,

Simon

Thumbs down Re: Holley Pro-Jection System

The holley computer is tuned via a laptop and is quite limited in features (ie. number of injectors that can be supported) so if you decide to upgrade later on, you'll need to junk it..

Last version of the holley computer I saw did not have any maps for a cleveland so even if you got it installed correctly and got it to run, it would run like shit until you had it tuned correctly on a dyno.

For the cost of Holley Projection, you would be much better off looking for a multipoint system (fuel rails etc..) along with a decent computer like wolf3d etc.. as xbgs351 stated to get the full benefits offered by fuel injection.

Even if you still want to waste your money (my opinion) on Holley Projection for your Cleveland you may run into compatibility problems with your distributor.

Once again, for the money, look elsewhere for fuel injection.

I have seen a couple of Cleveland powered Falcons running with Hoelly Pro-Jection amd neither have had ignition problems. Then run MSD Ignition Units.
