my truck has the surging idle issue that i just can't seems to get rid of. i replaced the TPS, IAC, ECM temp sensor, as well as going over all the wiring. last Friday, i was talking to a guy that directed me to a recent Holley product that eliminates all these issues while still being EFI. this is what i plan on using... Holley Sniper EFI 550-511 Holley Sniper EFI Self-Tuning Kit - Black Ceramic Finish

that EFI system will eliminate the ECM in the truck and everything that goes with it making things much simpler and easier as well as cleaning up tons of wiring and other things under the hood. while the 1986 EFI system does work, they are not very efficient although they do make a decent amount of power. adding to the fact that they can be a pain to work on and have a history of known problems like surging idle, i'm opting for simple, clean, and easy to work on ;)

oh, and i'm really looking forward to getting my amp next month :D

update on my truck...

a couple weeks ago, the computer went for a crap in my truck. i had planned on saving money to put in a Sniper EFI system... well... i have the Sniper master kit now and have to get an intake, distributor, and breather. the kit was $1844. the intake will be around $200. the distributor will be another $200. and i don't know what breather i'm getting yet. will post some pics when i get it done ;)

Yesterday, drove to a friend's place and almost there... I got a sudden loss of oil pressure. Have to start taking the motor apart to figure out what went wrong. Sucks :( :(
