I broke down and bought the summit EFI 500 kit and finished the install today, I have to say best money I have spent, don't think I will ever own a carb car again. .this makes power idles great right from start up. I would highly recommend for anyone.

I installed the FiTech. So far it has worked well for me. It was well worth it. Here are a few FiTech threads:

+1 on never use a carb ever again. The diff with a carb is simply too big to be ignored.

 

Installed a Sniper on my 351, very happy with it but was considering the Summit for my 429, simply because it seems cheaper and I don't see much diff with the Holley. Likely between high 300 and 500 hp, this unit should handle it with no problems.

Unlike Holley, they do not offer full kit (pump/filters/hoses etc..)

What did you end up using outside the Summit kit? As I'm trying to find out where the catch is.

 

If you have picts of the install, please share some.
