Carb Terminator
Holley Performance Products Terminator line of carburetor-replacement fuel-injection systems replaces your rig’s carburetor with an EFI throttle body. Fuel delivery is achieved through an annular-discharge ring and the ECU is self-tuning while you drive, so no laptop computer is needed. The 950cfm square-flange throttle body comes with 80 lb/hr fuel injectors, which are advertised to handle engines from 250 to 600hp. Also included are a pre-wired throttle body, main wiring harness, handheld tuner, ECU, and necessary sensors.
