Just curious if anyone is running any of the above.

I can't imagine that someone hasn't put one of the new self learning systems on a six, but I am not seeing anything.

I was planning on running a 4 bbl but have been rethinking the idea. I am contemplating using a FiTech system. I spoke with a guy that successfully ran one on a 2.3 Liter Pinto motor. Before I do that, I will be conferring with Bruce and Paul to get their input. It will cost more, but I'd really like this to be nice when I get finished. If anyone is wanting to stay on a tight budget, then obviously the carb is the way to go.

Reckon my next one should be from the 50s but I do love the early 60s falcon

I'm using Holley HP. Once I got the fuel map dialed in the car starts right up,and runs smooth. I Don't have very many miles on it, but so far I'm happy with it.

There are quite a few threads of folks on here successfully running megasquirt and other systems. Some w/turbos, distributorless ign, etc.

I'm running FiTech 4bbl on my 300. I've only test ran it on the engine for an hour or two but once everything was wired and setup correctly it ran pretty decent. I'm pretty impressed so far by it. I'm curious to see someone run the 2bbl version.

What are you running for a distributor?

Are you letting the Snipe control timing?

Yes, I have a Holley Sniper 850-550 on my 300.

I'd had a 4bbl carb on it for years, so I wavered back and forth between going with the 4bbl Sniper or the 2bbl Sniper, but was then advised by both forum members, and Holley, to go with the 2bbl setup since it's rated for 350hp (which is plenty for me) and flows 580cfm. Unlike a carb, it doesn't depend on air speed through the venturi to get crisp throttle response like a carb does, so a "big" 2bbl design works just great.

I very much like it. It fired right up from the first turn of the key, and has been a joy to drive since. I've never had such crisp throttle response. Plus, the cold weather options and drivability leaves the carb to shame.

I also love all the data I can read and pull up on the handheld. Engine vacuum/pressure, AFR, coolant temp, air temp, RPM, throttle %, fuel flow rate, battery voltage, just to name a few, as well as the data-logging to view and look over later.

For the fuel system, I used the system from a '85 302v8 since it was fuel injected, and in my body style / era.

I'm using ms2 extra on my turbo 300. Pretty easy to use and very easy to wire up
