What do you know about a Holley projection

Interested in information pros & cons on the original Holley Projection. I have 2 of them & would like some input from people who actually have some hands on experience. I got them in a trade last Saturday. I've heard all sorts runors about these things. I would like to hear some first hand experience on them. I want to stick one on the Cherk. I have a projection 2 kit for the Commando & would like to get some experience. there's not a lot of dfference between these & the Howell so any input would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any input

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

Do you have the analog or digital version? I could never get the analog version to run very well. It was ALWAYS either too rich or too lean.

3 Years, $2k into it, I would never run this again on an off-road rig.
Temperamental and marginal FI setup.
Probably great on a street rig.
I don't like to bad mouth products, but I would ever do one again.
It's intended use was not setup for us (as wheelers).
Your opinion and mileage may vary.
Sorry, not impressed at all.

It's the analog Thanks for you reply. I could use all the input I can get. I do have a projection 2 digital I'm saving for another project. I really want to see what this one is capable of. Before I do the projection2. I'm just hoping to see some good input or key suggestions. I also am going to look into a possible upgrade. I've heard you can upgrade the controller to the pro 2.

I ran the analog version on my first Wag a few years back. I wouldn't do it again. When I would get the tune just right, it would run great for about 2 months then go crappy again, tweak for another weekend to get a few more weeks and repeat the process. Finally ditched it for a carb.

Thank you sir that's what I'm afraid of. I have a 1405 I think I'll stick with. I just heard good bad & ugly & I wanted it straight form the horses mouth. In Texas they say if you want to here it staight from the horses mouth. Be sure you're on the right end of the horse.

So the bottom line is there was nothing you could do but trash it?

If it says anything, I have 1 1/2 complete version of the analog system hiding somewhere in my garage. I'd give them to someone, but I don't know of anyone I dislike that much.

I ran the digital projection on a CJ5 with a small block chevy 350 several years ago.

I never could get it to run right. It did run ok, but definitely not 'great'. A well tuned carb will run much better. Especially a TA.

The only after market EFI setups that I have seen that work well is the edelbrock TPI setup. Its setup more like that of a modern EFI setup, rather than a weird carb-TBI hybrid setup. There is also the howell setup, which is legal here in CA, a many people here run for that reason. But its based off OEM designs, so its not as picky.

Thanks Guys

So far no good news. I wrote Holley to see if it can be ugraded to the Projection 2 It uses the same TB maybe that will be the ticket.

since I'm going to run one (Pro 2) on the Commando If I cauld upgrade this one that would be the ticket.


FSJ Guy I could use some of you system. I'll pay hipping cost if you want to get rid of it.

I'd have to find it first....

IIRC, the knobs on the controller unit are a little loose. They work, but they wobble a bit. I might still have a throttle body somewhere, too.

The biggest drawback (I think) to the old Holley system vs. a GM TBI is that the Holley did not have an IAC (Idle Air Control) on it. That (IMHO) really makes a difference in (obviously) idle quality.
