Holley Terminator powered EG33?

Does anyone here run a EG33 motor from a Holley Terminator ECM? Preferably naturally aspirated? Or will I be the first?

Re: Holley Terminator powered EG33?

Re: Holley Terminator powered EG33?

For me, this is an experienced and dedicated NHRA track car for bracket racing. Running on the factory ECU there is adaptive programming when in closed loop to get the best fuel economy, the lowest emissions, to retard timing upon detection of ping/knock. I want the car to do EXSACTLY what I tell it to do, over and over and tuned for the best performance without doing anything but logging for issues. I dont want changes for fuel economy, emissions, or anything else.

I should have baselines for before on Subaru ECU and after on Holley after AWD dyno tuning.

Re: Holley Terminator powered EG33?

I've been looking at those and the similar options from AEM, Fast, Fitech and have been leaning more heavily towards the Edelbrock offerings than the others. What is it about the Holley that you like more than all of the others, such as the ever popular megasquirt, Haltech, Link, Ecumaster etc?

Re: Holley Terminator powered EG33?

Reasons I choose Holley Terminator:
  • Cost, best bang for the buck (Haltech and such are more expensive other than megasquirt)
  • LONG time company for backing support, less likely to go belly up like Hydra
  • Popularity in knowledge for getting tunning done (AWD dyno time is expensive and seems many of the dyno owners know hot to tune Holley quick)
  • Upgrade path to even more capable products from Holley with same plugs
  • I am working on another project car that will also be Holley/Terminator powered, so shared common parts and knowledge between them
  • This is going in a points tracked NHRA race car, and if something breaks, I need parts availability quick, ebay, Amazon, Summit Racing, Jegs, all sell this common line
  • Lastly, someone here suggested the path (they can pipe up if they want to be named)

Re: Holley Terminator powered EG33?

Well if you are already using a holly on another vehicle then I would definitely stick with the same thing if I were you. Good plan, keep us updated on the project.

Re: Holley Terminator powered EG33?

Im using one in mynls build and it couldn't be simpler.

Now adapting it to the Svx is a little bit more of a challenge but yhe ease of finding a capable tuner for this platform is the best selling point. There are also TONS of these units out on a track at any given moment so it just make sense.

I am hoping to have the connectors from Chris soon so i can make him a plug and play harness. We will see how it goes.

A plug n play harness would be enough to convince me to buy this over the Edelbrock option. Where does one source new connectors anyway?

Re: Holley Terminator powered EG33?

The subaru side is from speedy efi at https://speedyefi.com/product/denso-76-breakout-board/

The holley connectors can be had from summit or through holley directly. Then its a connect the dots game

Thanks Tom. I was on Rock Auto and autozone today looking for a complete engine gasket kit and other things, since I am finally getting back to working on cars again, and was surprised to see how little is available for the SVX these days. I sure hope a dealership can still get a rebuild gasket set!
