[/QUOTE]How about option C) Return the Holley Terminator system ($ 999 ouch! ) and buy the 302-2 pan that you really need to do the job right. It's just me but when the factory ECM's work so well, are plentiful and cheap I don't understand why anyone would use anything else....Especially at $999
If you value your time @ $$$ you would be ahead just getting the holley pan, motor mounts and crossmember. I used the truck pan in mine and had to screw around getting the drive angle right. The stock pcm works just fine and doesn't take that long to rewire the harness. You can get all the stock gauges to work with pcm except speedo.I have a full truck harness/ECU/fuse block when I got the motor. Mathematically I am saving money with the Holley:
Holley Terminator: $900 with $100 off coupon from Summit. I can tune myself, wire and monitor 90% of the things I want. Can use stock speedometer and gas gauge. Win for me.
Truck harness/ECU: Rewire harness (costs time which I value my time @ $$$, $400), gauges (Tach, A/F, oil pressure, fuel pressure, water temperature, etc etc, easily $600, buy HP Tuners, $400 or pay someone to tune $$.
$1400 > $900
Either way, I need the pan
