Michael Clark changes out his Four-Eye’s carburetor for a Holley Sniper EFI system
Making the Switch to EFI
Carburetors can be a little cumbersome. Carbs were all we knew before the 1986 GT came along, and many swapped out the EFI for carbs. These days it comes down to individual choice, and what each person likes best. Some people are lost when it comes to carburetors, yet others have no clue about electronic fuel injection. When a carburetor is working well, you can’t beat it, but the same goes for EFI.
For Michael Clark and his 1985 LX, he had it up to here with the carburetor on his car. Therefore, he decided to try EFI in the form of a Holley Sniper EFI system. “The install was simple with only four wires, a coolant temperature sensor, and an oxygen sensor, which were all included with the Sniper system,” Michael says. “The car fired right up first try and after a couple hours of varied driving it pretty much tuned itself and only required minor tweaking for a smoother idle and smoother starts,” he adds.
To augment the Holley Sniper system, Michael also added a Glenn’s Performance 19-gallon aluminum sumped tank, an AEM 380-lph fuel pump, Aeromotive fuel filters, and Aeroquip lines and AN fittings. Michael also added an MSD Pro Billet distributor.
Thanks to the Holley Sniper EFI system, now Michael can hop in his LX and not worry about cold starts, vapor lock, and the like.
