1958 GMC 1/2t truck GMC 302 6 cylinder 4barrel Clifford Intake & Headers.
Which Fitech kit with the CC2?

It is just a cruiser.Wanting better more reliability.Fitech customer service wasn't helpful-Acted like he needed to get off the phone verses explaining the differences The 32203 , from what I read isn't self learning? Which kit would you use??

If I can find a good EFI setup then I will probably put it on my 235 also...

If FITech can't help you with this question, that wouldn't encourage me.

But if you have an intake manifold that accepts a Holley 4 barrel carb, seems like the choice is straightforward, as the rest is choosing the fuel delivery/pump options.

I'd recommend you use a Holley Sniper kit. Seems that Holley has put a lot of R&D into that system and it's the price/performance leader right now. Holley isn't going anywhere any time soon either.

Fitech customer service is rather interesting. There is usually a long wait to talk to a technician, but I have found them quite helpful in the problem solving area. Product selection may not be their strong point.

The 400hp unit is okay down to 200hp or maybe a little less (600hp unit is the same but it has additional features including the ability to control the distributor). I did not buy the fancy unit with the Fuel Command Center. I bought the throttle body and the in-line fuel pump set (31003). It is self tuning with the ability to play with many parameters including air/fuel ratios, idle speeds, etc. The whole system is rather flexible.

My system is on a '65 pickup with a relatively stock 350/700R4.

Fitech seems to be a good company and they stand behind their products.

Yes Fitech's service is less than desired.

Am looking NOW at Other brands....

Thanks , I 'm leaning that way-

I haven't, but I've seen many forum posts with people putting EFI onto their 6-cylinder engines so it's quite possible. One thing to consider is setting up the intake to allow a vacuum signal from all 6 cylinders to reach the throttle body for the MAP sensor. But, it appears you'd be OK because I think the Clifford intakes are open plenum designs, not some kind of split plenum design.

Holley has a Quadrajet EFI setup with smaller primaries and lager secondaries like the original. Thinking that might work pretty good for in town driving.Just not sure about when the secondaries come into the picture.It is also supposed to be self tuning after around 200 miles or so.

If CS & Tech is important pass on Edelbrock even the tablet that come with the system has no trouble shooting.

Most of the tv shows put on Holleys. The big thing I want is a tablet/PC to tune and error code etc. and not have to call a tech center.

Would love to hear more. I am strongly considering converting my ‘79 Camaro to TB EFI.

Holley Sniper vs Fitech vs Howell vs (what else)

I’ve been to many sites and almost always see references to crappy CS with Fitech. Howell seems interesting from the point that their system is based on an 87 Chevy truck using the old GM TBI and ECM. Millions of those were made, so that is good in terms of parts availability and after market support. The downside is it uses a “chip” as opposed to the handheld. Also, the under hood plumbing likely not as “smooth” as when converting from a 4 bbl carb.

Leaning towards the Sniper right now, but this is a big decision and I want to fully research.

So far am impressed with Holley "being there" to help anywhere needed.Still waiting on more feedback from 6 cylinder owners though.

You might try posting on the Holley Performance Products Forum for inquiries about using the Holley EFI on a six cylinder engine. Larry
