      I have a 1985 Toyota Standard Cab 4x4 Pickup, I was interested in knowing the exact steps and parts needed to perform the complete EFI swap in from a carb. I currently run the Weber 32/36 and thought this would be a better replacement. Also what did the EFI do in regards to fuel efficiency? The EFI is listed as for a bigger engine, how did you tune it?
      • Hi Randy, the Holley Sniper is really pretty easy for an EFI carb. Go here and check out the installation instructions: Https://www.holley.com/products/fuel_systems/fuel_injection/sniper_efi/sniper_2300_2bbl/sniper_2300_2bbl_master_kits_with_fuel_system/parts/550-849K As far as Fuel Efficiency you should be able to tune it for great gas mileage but with my Supercharger it's kind of hard to tell lol, And as for engine size, you just tell it what size engine you have when setting it up.

      I need the camper shell! I have the same truck (way less cool and still mostly stock engine) and i am having such a hard time finding a shell for it! I live in lake tahoe and in the snow it can get pretty squirley cause it has no weight in the back. Do you still have the shell for it?
      • Just now saw this, I do still have it, but not sure if I'm ready to part with it yet. I'm still thinking I might want to put it on again in the future if I get into camping or overlanding or something. Is your's a long bed as well?

      How did you install your gauges in your dash pad on the right? Your truck looks amazing I am working on my '85 pickup right now and I like your setup!
      • Thanks! The first time (before it was stolen) I used a hole punch that an electrician let me borrow. The second time, I used a hole saw starting from the back side.

Another was moving fuel tank i want to do same only with fuel cell. Ill be reading your whole page eventually thanks for all the info!
      • First, thanks for the nice comments and second, nice job on your truck and yes it is addicting, these are fun trucks with a lot of things that can be customized to how you want it :-) Keep up the good work and I'll be interested to see how it comes along :-)

      Hey David, i was reading about ur fuel tank transition to the bed. Any tips? Ive done a million diagnostics its down to the pump most likely a ground inside ive been wanting to move the tank to the bed anyways so heres my chance. Philips screws on pump totally coroded.
      • Hey, just saw your comment. I don't really have any tips on moving the gas tank, all-in-all it went pretty easy. Just had to lengthen the wires and hoses and make some hold down straps. But how you hold it down is really up to you. The straps are working great though, I haven't had to re-tighten them all. The tank is sitting on the rubber bed mat which probably helps hold in place and squashes down into it a bit.
