Thinking about trying the Holley sniper 2300 fuel injection and looking to see who’s successfully running it and is it worth it? I know there are a few post ( @Dustin Messina @74fj40 and @thecrazygreek ) out there but looking for feedback before I buy. Who all is running? I’ve got a 2F in my 71 that I’ll be putting it on. Thanks.

I have done single barrel big windows, 2 barrel OEM blah blahs, rebuilt carbs from sensational people here on mud, and tbi Howell horses***...
I will put my whatever on the line and say the sniper 2300 in my 2f is THE f***ING BEST THING YOU CAN DO to your motor evar!!!

Super easy, super reliable.

Turn your old ass engine into a millenial super awesome thingy...

Sorry gentlemen, it's Friday night. and IPA is on the menu... :)

I'm not running the Holley setup but an AFI on my 1976, and like the greek said above, it's the best thing I have done to the FJ40 ever. Cold starts, hot starts no longer matter, it just starts. The EFI on the FJ40 and the H55 on my FJ62 are two transforming upgrades to these trucks. Game changers for me.

This thread has a lot of info: Holley Sniper 2 barrel conversion

I'm running the sniper, installed it earlier this year after my carb had been giving me fits. It's absolutely amazing. Install was a breeze. I got the full install kit from Holley, which honestly was kind of useless and the fuel pump it came with s*** itself pretty fast (some no name pump). Otherwise no issues and totally happy. Truck runs better than it ever has.

I am actually going to be installing another sniper system into a 78 this weekend.
Using the adapter kit from @Downey which should be here soon. I'll post up thoughts on the adapter kit, etc...
The walbro pump was the best of three. But... I'm going to give the pump included in the kit one more chance. If it's too loud again... I'll just be buying the stand alone sniper without the fuel kit....

We will see...

Not knowing which pump I'd get with the kit, I went with the stand alone Sniper. I went with the Walbro GSL394 (Amazon). Compared with the GSL 392, it's pretty much identical but puts out less gph. Looking at the charts I figured it was big enough but I'd draw a little less amperage. Walbro says the GSL392 is good for 540 hp and the GSL394 is good for 400 hp. I heard that if Holley included a Walbro in their kit, it would be the GSL392. It probably doesn't matter between the two, but my 394 seems to be adequate where the regulator is sending plenty of fuel back to the return while maintaining 60 psi. If you care compare specs.....

Definitely let me know how it all goes. I’ll most likely be purchasing the Downey adapter kit to finish this off. I’ll be keeping my stock air cleaner so I’ll address that when it comes. Most likely fab up something.
