That would be great, but I only have a few of these left and can not get any more laser cut. I got these cut at work and now they are not letting many "government" projects through. I can talk to them and see if somehow I can get more cut if there's a bunch of people that want them.

I'll hold off until we can further discuss this. I'm really not making anything off of these, more covering my material costs and shipping. Just don't want people to go through what I did.
I totally get it. I just want to make sure you have a space to provide these when and if you decide to. :)


As an aside, look on the internet. You can get "things" CNC cut in bulk, for cheap! Typically, you'd buy the material from the place doing the CNC so... It still ends up pretty cheap. I had some small work done alongside getting some printed circuit boards made. That's another project I need to get back to (non-Mustang related). lol

Will all small block fords have this problem ?Just starting to build my car 1968 fastback and just got a sniper kit to install
I can't speak for all sbf engines as I have only done two of them with the Sniper. On the second, I put the plate I made on right away and never had any problems. When you get yours built and running and find you are having rfi problems, send me an e-mail or pm and I'll get you a plate sent out. I still have a couple left. I'm not on here a lot, so it may be a few days before I see it.

To add, on the second Sniper kit I installed, the O2 sensor died within a couple of months and a found out a temp sensor was out of range. It was reading 20-30 degrees warmer than it actually was, so starts around zero degrees or colder were a little bit of a pain. Ended up selling that vehicle, but pulled the Sniper and put a carb back on before listing it.

If a carb style fuel injection is a must . Terminator x is the way to go. Gets the ecu into the car
Well, shoot. If I had looked at those and seen the pricing, I probably would've gone with that system.

I'm thinking about pulling apart the extra Sniper to see if I can remote mount the ECU inside. I'll try it on the spare before tearing apart the one in the car and taking the chance of wrecking something that's currently working good.

Anybody ever hear of that being done?

Never and I’m in a lot of Holley groups and guys that use it frequently
