This might get you 1/2 inch or more to work with.
Yes, that's what I ended up doing! After staring at it for a few minutes that idea came to me.

Jack it up till you hear cracking noises, then back off a quarter turn

Holley Terminator ECU pinout and wiring diagram

Placing this here for my reference

http://documents.holley.com/techlibr...10555rev17.pdf

I need to move pin J1A31 to J1A20 to repurpose my fuel pressure connector as a oil pressure sensor
(Installing oil filled fuel pressure gauge, electronic sender not needed. Oil pressure sensor will be programmed as a fuel pump safety shutoff)

Hopefully laying in the harness tomorrow

some assembly required... How do you access the computer, so you can mess with the fuel tables and AFR. Or does it come pretty much pre programmed for the 454?

To the credit of efisystempro, this came with every little harness adapter I needed to get all those parts hooked together. I think I just need to make 5 or so direct connections on my own.

Switched 12v
Fuel pump
Chassis ground
Connect the two white wires together - points output to points input
Tach output


The small little square box next to the ignition coil in the first photo is a touchscreens display to mount on the dash, good for monitoring all the sensors/parameters and making minor tweaks. You can make major adjustments either by transferring an sd card back and forth, or directly connecting a laptop

It doesn't come knowing anything about what engine it's going into, I will have to walk it through some basic questions about the engine, then the claim to fame with all the new systems is that they "self learn" to get themselves in the ballpark using the sensors (tps, rpm, map, cts, wbO2, and in my case I'm trying to add knock)

From what I've read the self learn gets it in the right ballpark most of the time, but a professional tune still helps, it sometimes arrives at solutions with less than optimum parameters or harsh edges between regions of operation. The company I purchased through offers a professional tuning service where they iterate with you looking at data logs and your human feedback, and sending you new tuning files to try. They offer an unlimited number of these iterations along with tech support for 2 years. And you actually get a human phone number, to call the same human, every time, along with the phone number of the owner of the company, who has been very responsive to my questions so far.

This is all of course sales pitch and theory until I actually get it rolling down the road happily, I'll keep yall updated

When I inherited the now obsolete Holley Commander 900 system installed in the 83 310, the only self-learning function was me having to learn more than I ever wanted to know.
It would have been worth just about any amount of money to be able to get "tables" and a human to talk to. Holley tech support did offer me an upgrade for some $2k plus when I called them once.

When I had it running good, I found another "brain" and copied the profile to it as a backup. I pretty sure Dave (ontheroadagn), who owns the 310 now, still uses the system with good reliability.
You will be very thrilled.

Good to hear! I did a lot of research on long-term reliability and concluded most of their products are solid with just a few lemons. The lemons being the sniper, and some of their early magnetic-pickup efi distributors.

As for their direct tech support... It's a last resort

Anyone know a source for a good replacement for the doghouse gasket?
Mine is... for all intents and purposes, no longer with us in the land of the living

Gasket

Rob I used a gasket from a fleetwood mh slide out under side seal .vary similar profile . Note that my 370 have alum angel pieces that the gasket pushes on to that can be relocated inward or outward for a better fit to doghouse cover.I also shaved 1/4 to 3/8 off the bottom of dog house cover to fit up in the dash area and over all better seal to the new gasket I found this to be a fun project for a change. Cheers ken

Finished all the behind the dash wiring yesterday, new gauges are all routed.
Probably spent half the day chasing down old unused wires from previous owner projects, removing ten pounds of unused wires and vacuum lines

Not perfect back there but better than it was, and I'm very happy with the look

Still need to redo the whole faceplate in wood or aluminum. Someday.

This is how the OEM filter base would have looked like....
The one on the left is correct, the one on the right was mine, that some PO had sawn off the snorkle....

Doghouse gasket

Magnet18 did you find doghouse gasket. Davejay recommended Mobility Rv for my doghouse gasket and it worked. Do you know how much you need because when I ordered mine it looks like they shipped me enough gasket for two doghouses. I have a 8' piece left over and a 2' piece they threw in for unknown reasons in the box they sent me. It has the metal reinforcement on the piece that slides on the metal frame. Pic attached. Let me know if it will work. Jim
