I know TTA Performance installed FiTech recently.

I would contact them for advice on that engine.  The owner Joe does some really nice work. He’s a really nice guy and knows his way around those engines.

I was looking at this https://www.holley.com/products/fuel_systems/fuel_injection/sniper_efi/sniper_efi_quadrajet/parts/550-869

This is probably your best option upfront due to having the spreadbore carb pad on your turbo inlet manifold.

Mine is N/A. This Holley set up is similar to the regular sniper but is
supposed work with stock intake manifold. I was curious if anyone was running one. I'd like to know how well it fits. A friend has the regular one on his olds it works great.

Should fit with no problem since it’s a spreadbore.  Hope to see you install it.  These are definitely interesting for the stock intake crowd.

read through your article and it was a great write up.

One question, as I am super clueless but was there a choice option for it to setup on a 301 or is that something I will have to try a 305 setting and tweak the numbers?

just My 2 cents , but for the 301 , I would just start with the basic parameters in the initial setup and then adjust it from there if needed. For just a basic setup for the 301, I would keep the timing stand alone if your happy with it now. The base settings on the Sniper work really well with a stock set up, just program in the numbers in the set up and I think that would work very well.

On initial set up it ask for which system you have, cylinders, cubic inch, cam, target idle and ignition type, that easy.
