Hey guys; it's that time I need to chose an EFI system for my build. I was set on the Holley Sniper and then my engine builder recommends the Edelbrock Pro-Flo 4.
The reviews seem to be split and then I came across the you tube video on the Edelbrock by Vinny Costa; editor of Street Muscle Magazine. I liked what I saw and heard.

What's ironic is that Orange County Hot Rods in Corona CA was one of the builders I drove out to as one of my choices.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks Mickey chevy

I've never had either, I've always stuck with the Edelbrock 1406 which is a 4 barrel around the 600 CFM range. It is tuned out of the box, only very slight adjustments are needed and you can swap jets really easily. I have heard a lot of people use the Sniper kit though...

I know you are a busy man; when you can check out that video on the Edelbrock Pro-Flo 4 and see what you think; Thanks as always Charlie

If your builder is recommending one over the other, it's possible that it's because that's the one he knows how to set up properly.

My buddy has a military Humvee that he put a Chevy 454 in.
He used the Holley Sniper.
He had a bunch of issues at first because of the nature of the install, but Holley was really good about helping him get them resolved.

The Humvee is now a monster with 40" mud tires on it that will go 100 miles an hour, and he uses it as a daily driver.
LOL

If I was going to do an aftermarket EFI, I'd go with the Sniper, but only because my buddy already knows a lot about it.

I know several guys running the Holley Sniper system and they all love it. I can't say anything about the Edelbrock as I have no experience with it, but I do know the Holley system works great.

After seeing the video and the research; I like the idea the Eldelbrock is a self learning system and adapts to location and driving conditions. What's ironic is the guy in the video; owner of Orange County Hot Rods in Corona CA showed me an old school Blazer with the set up and that closed me.
