    Hi, is anyone running a Holley sniper on a stroker with a fairly big cam? I have a 470 solid stroker motor and need a new carb. I heard they don't really work so sell on certain motors

    I've been running a Sniper on my Coronet for a few years. Engine makes a little over 600 hp with a modest hyd roller. The Sniper works great if you know how to tune it. Can't be afraid of a computer if you want to get the most out of a Sniper. Here is a video of me on the chassis dyno with the Coronet. This is a 512 inch low deck with ported Edelbrock heads, Performer RPM, HP exhaust manifolds and a Sniper. If you listen you can hear it pull hard in 5th gear.

      I'm not sure on the Sniper, but the Fi Tech works fine on my Charger, that only has about 5" of vacuum (270+ duration @ 0.050", 0.726" lift cam)

        I think it was 155 to 160 mph. We were pulling past 6500 rpm and the car had 3.55 gears with 28 inch rear tire.
