    Hey folks. I just ordered the above full kit (includes lines and fuel pump etc) - what are your thoughts on attempting to install it myself or should I get my engine builder to do it for $1,500?

    Many of us have installed EFI in our cars, I did the Edelbrock Pro Flo 4, but you're the only one that can answer your question. That $1500 install fee is a bit pricey in my opinion, but I'm on the cheap side sometimes and it does depend on where you're located.

    Pretty straight forward install, instructions and videos make it easy. Installing fuel lines and filters take the most time. Holley has a great tech service if you need help.

    I would attempt it. Thats a lot of money to be saved and the feeling of accomplishment afterwards is very rewarding. Worst case scenario you fail, put the carb back on and drive to the shop, but thats not very likely.
    Go for it!

    Instructions are easy to read and understand. You CANT mess it up!!!! just take your time and ask Q/A here, Seriously just read the directions a few times and start piece by piece, You'll need those 1500 bucks for new tires afterwards:)

    it's pretty straight forward..... making it look REALLY neat is probably the most difficult part.
