Holley EFI is a complete engine and vehicle management. Holley EFI is an awesome system and has tons of capabilities for street cars and race cars. You can use it with the optional digital dash or without. Whilst we love Fueltech here at ACE, Holley EFI is a little easier to tune and digest for people who may not have much EFI experience. For this reason I recommend it over our FuelTech if this is your first EFI engine. 

Holley EFI has built in 2 step, 3 step, launch and staging control. Traction control is available with the use of a driveshaft collar (if your car is IRS). It is fully laptop tunable or can be remotely tuned by a tuner at a different location. Check out all the capabilities of the HP or Dominator with the link below.


This is a complete Aircooled VW turbo engine package with fuel and oil system complete, tuned and ready to fit into your street car or race car! We recommend the vehicle always be Dyno tuned once the engine has been fitted by a professional. We also offer an engine dyno service at an additional cost. 

Other options also available. Please contact us before ordering this engine to discuss your exact requirements.
