The truth is that a well-tuned carburetor will produce the same peak horsepower as a well-tuned fuel injection setup. That’s great, but there’s so much more to a race car and even more to a daily driver than wide-open throttle. A street car often needs to cold start and drive at sub-zero temperatures while compensating for changing air and fuel conditions that a carburetor just can’t. Race cars require fine attention to detail when you’re dealing with multi-stage nitrous, a turbo, a supercharg- er, water/methanol injection, a transbrake, shift controls, and any other performance or consistency modification. Each of these can be electron- ically controlled and the fuel injection compensated for through Holley’s Dominator EFI.
The generations who were brought up through video games, typed- only homework assignments, and smart phones are going to latch onto the EFI wagon naturally while the traditionalists are going to need some convincing. In today’s racing world there’s no room for avoiding technology and Holley has created an EFI system for both the tech savvy, and the computer curious.
The Dominator EFI is the top piece of a three-tier cake of EFI systems. It does require that the tuner grasps the concept of EFI and its numerous adjustments. At the same time, Holley’s in-depth instructions guide you to the 10-percent of those adjustments that will have the most influence on your tune. Here we will go over the Dominator EFI’s features and what sets it apart from the others.
