Holley Carburetor and EFI Training Classes Are Enrolling Now For 2023!

12/01/2022

Do you want to expand upon your automotive skills? Do you want to learn how engines get the air and fuel they need directly from the people who have been making that magic happen for decades? Are you ready to make the leap to electronic fuel injection, or do you want to learn the inner workings of a carburetor so that you can do more than tune by ear? Holley's Carburetor 101 and EFI training courses are the perfect place to learn from the professionals, to get answers to your questions, and to gain the tuning knowledge that is necessary to make reliable horsepower and torque. Whether you are just starting out and want to learn the basics or you're wanting to know all of the advanced capabilities for your shop or racing program, Holley has a course for you:

The Holley model 4150 and 4160 platforms have been in production since 1956, first debuting on the 312ci V8 in the Ford Thunderbird, and over the years since they have been used as OEM carburetors and have found wide acceptance in the aftermarket. Nearly every form of performance automotive and marine application one can think of has relied on a Holley carburetor to deliver power reliably for years on end. Don't just guess at how the carburetor works or adjust random screws hoping things will work out. By the end of this course you will have a fundamental understanding of the various circuits and their functions as well as initial setup, tuning and proper rebuilding procedures. Other popular Holley models, such as the 2300, 4165, 4175 and 4500 variants will be discussed as well.


This course is intended to clear up general misconceptions about carbureted fuel systems as well as give students a first hand experience on tearing down, inspecting and re-assembling a model 4150 or model 4160 carburetor. Course registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so take advantage by registering early! Students will be subjected to catered lunches as well as in-depth presentations/discussions by Holley's two training instructors.


Each participant will be granted the opportunity to tour our manufacturing facility (which has been producing carburetors for over 60 years) and allowed a loaner carburetor for practical training and disassembly. Participants may bring their own carburetor but it must be clean, dry and free of fuel/solvent fumes.


This course runs for two days and takes place at the National Corvette Museum from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM each day. They are limited to 15 people and costs $425.00. Class registration fees are non-refundable. Class dates may be rescheduled at our discretion (subject to a rescheduling fee) no less than 30 days before your original scheduled class date.


Dates Available:


  • June 10-11
