Is the Holley commander 950 Pro-jection a good set-up??

I'm at the point where I need a fuel injection for my street rod, and would like some opinions. All along I was going to use Holley's 700CFM Pro-jection, which is a throttle-body system, but the local supplier says it will give me nothing but problems. I know that the old Pro-Jection was a piece of crap, But I was under the impression that the new one with the Commander 950 was a good setup. Are there any advantages to going to multi port?? This is street rod, and I would give up a bit of performance for reliability.BTW, I'm running a magnum 360, 10:1 with new Mopar Performance aluminum heads. Thanks for any replies. Dan

I knew several folks that used the Pro-Jection set up when it first came out. Most every one FAILED to follow the instructions when they put it on and ripped it off. However, one of them, followed the instructions exactly. It was a 454 in a motor home. After many hours on tech support with Holley it too came off. I have a Pro Jection set up never used in the box. I got rid of the vehicle it was to go on and MANY MANY trips to the swap meet netted zero buyers. I could not even give it away.

I found out that one of the installation problems was NO return line got installed as was specified by the instrutions. Holley came out with a O2 sensor add on kit that was reported to help. I seem to remember the newer kits include the O2 sensor. The magazines at the time were reporting 1/2 of the fuel pumps failed too.

The Commander set up, IMO was done using the learning curve. IMO, going to EFI for a cruiser is a good idea. From everything I have seen on aftermarket units, ones with the closed loop or O2 sensor feedback systems it the way to go.

BTW, did you ask your local supplier why he knows the pro-jection will be problamatic? From experience or heresay? Local suppliers, can be good sources of info but you have to remember misinformation can abound there too. My curiosity gets me when folks quickly poor mouth things.

I have never heard a bad thing about the 950 systems from folks that have used them. The TBI setup I think is nice as it gets you into a EFI system for a pretty low cost. Your not going to miss any performance with the TBI versus a port injection for a typical street application.

Thanks for the info!! I installed one of the first generation Pro-Jections and was not happy with it.It ran OK, but here in Canada, I could not get it to run when it was cold. That was many years ago, that's why I'm willing to take a chance on the newer Commander 950 system. My Local shop's excuse was that they had problems with them about 6-7 years ago, but to the best of my knowledge they don't have any experience with the new models. Dan
