Holley Dominator

Hey,

Anyone done one of these? I'm trying to save a Z I bought half ways stripped/wrecked and decided to make it more race orientated. Just bought a Dominator and looking for some pointers!

Car will be a lsa, 4l80e combo.

Thanks!

I’ve worked on Dominators, and most other Holley race carbs. What size did you get, what’s the list #? Takes a pretty big intake and camshaft, as well as a lot of compression to make Dominators work. Big carb means big cam which means high stall converter.

I'm doing their standalone computer setup, not their retrofit carb setup.

Not much info on the net on someone doing this.

Car will be a lsa blower on a low miles ls3 (all supporting mods)
*night fury cam specs
*3200 triple disk converter

running a 28" I also have a 3.90 gear or 3.45, which one would be recommended? Plan on doing flex fuel but not sure how far I want to push this motor.

Your best stand alone ecu would be a fueltech unit to use sir, we fit them in all our conversions and racecars as well

The Holley EFI is Bad ass, but you must be pretty tech/tune savy to set one up for the first start up then the tuning begins.

We have done several builds using the Holley systems They work very well.

Not sure you are going to find many shops that uses them, most will try and sell you something they know.

I am confident with all aftermarket stand alone systems.

The Holley is a really good system we do alot of them and they are pretty easy to use so dont get scared off by people saying how hard they are to use, my buddy James aka Reaper from Street Outlaws runs one on his camaro and when i crewed for him at quaker raceway recently he was one of the only cars to get down the loose track due to the ability of the Holley system to log and give us the data we needed to make the adjustments to put down some great runs in the low 4's
