By: Tom Kise | 12/18/2017 < Back to Motor Life Home

Holley's popular factory training courses are back in 2018 to provide a unique opportunity to get advanced training and technical experience with Holley EFI. One and two-day courses are being offered at Holley's company headquarters in Bowling Green, Kentucky and EFI University in Lake Havasu City, Arizona that provide technical training for dealers, racers, and any other user of their popular EFI systems.

Holley's EFI courses provide three levels of EFI training. The first is tier one. At the end of this class, participants will have the tools they need to successfully complete a conventional "canned" Holley EFI installation. Class space is currently limited to 12- 15 people per session. The goal of the limited space is to allow the instructor the ability to work with each participant one-on-one as much as possible. This class is ideal for those who are new to EFI in general, as well as those who are new to Holley's EFI systems. This is a one-day class with a cost of $150.00 that will run from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The following topics will be covered in the class:

  • System features
  • Wiring
  • Instructions
  • Software loading and navigation
  • Using the data monitor
  • File management
  • General engine and ignition parameters
  • Closed loop and learn
  • Timing tables
  • Idle parameters,
  • pin mapping, and basic Input/Output configuration
  • Tuning principles
  • Acceleration enrichment tuning
  • And more

The tier two class will expand on what was learned in the Tier one class to include advanced tuning and set up principles. The tier two course also runs from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., but it is a two-day course with a cost of $225.00. Class size is again limited to 12-15 people per session. Prior completion of the Tier One class is required. The following topics will be covered in this course:

  • System features
  • Advanced Wiring
  • File management including, setting directory paths, creating a custom GCF and exporting GCF files to the ICF Library
  • Advanced engine parameters
  • Multiple Injector set strategies and injector phasing
  • Custom ignition configurations
  • Cam/Crank sensor phasing
  • Closed loop and learn
  • Timing tables and programmable timing retards
  • Idle parameters, including advanced idle troubleshooting and tuning
  • Datalog use
  • System logs and other diagnostic tools
  • Tuning principles
  • Load scale, pro's and cons to Speed density, VE, alpha-N and Combo strategies
  • Acceleration enrichment tuning
  • Start up fueling
  • Drive by wire
  • GM / Ford transmission control
  • Custom inputs/outputs
  • Advanced ICF tables
  • Rescaling fuel maps for boosted applications and increases resolution
  • Sensor scaling and warnings
  • Hot key navigation
  • And more

The tier three class will take all of the previously covered information and apply is to more complicated engine combinations that utilize superchargers or turbochargers, nitrous oxide, and water/methanol injection. Like the tier two course, this course is limited to 12-15 people per session, it runs from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and will be a two-day class with a cost of $225.00. Prior completion of the Tier two class is required.

"Holley factory training is a fantastic way to get unique one-on-one time with our engineers and lead techs," says Bill Tichenor, Holley’s Director of Marketing. "The knowledge gained from these courses helps improve sales for our dealers and gives users specialized instruction to improve their general EFI understanding, as well as the tuning capabilities of Holley's EFI systems."
