  1.  in a way that is experienced in the imagination through the actions of another person. 
    "he was living vicariously through his customers" 

We are living life through the experiences of our customers like Gavin, who drives this gorgeous '69 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Folks think that we here at EFI System Pro drive the coolest cars on the planet.  And we like that you think that.  But, as it turns out, the really cool cars are all being horded by our customers.  As a result, we are forced to live vicariously through them.  Whenever we get a photo of one of our customers cars we secretively upload it to our smart phones and go around telling everyone that we've added another priceless classic to our personal collections.

We don't explain that we are talking about our personal collection of customer car photographs, but that is merely a minor technicality. It's called living vicariously, and our customers are gracious enough to indulge our fantasy with their pictures.

It's always a beautiful day when you own a '69 Chevy Stingray!

This '69 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a prime example.  When Gavin called and asked me if I thought the Holley Sniper EFI System would work well on it, I said, "Oh Yeah!"  As far as he knew I was talking about the Sniper EFI System itself, but I was already drooling of the chance to pass around pictures of my latest "acquisition".

Fortunately, while I don't have a '69 Corvette of my own, I do know EFI Systems, and knew that the Sniper EFI System was a perfect match.  A straight-forward installation process is coupled with a user-friendly setup using the included 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD display.  And since it supports over 600 HP, that was more than sufficient for this summer-season daily driver.

Look what else I have on my, er, ahem, Gavin has on his car:

  • 383 SBC built by Doug Herbert
  • Turbo 400 with shift kit
  • Ceramic headers
  • Stainless 3-Inch Exhaust
  • Ride Tech coilover suspension
  • Hydroboost brake system
  • MSD 6AL ignition
  • Baldwin Motion tribute paint
  • Functional Custom stinger hood scoop
  • Canvas soft top

I should point out that Gavin has lovingly named her Miranda.  (In retrospect, I could have used that fact up front and gone a whole different direction on this writeup!  Oh well, too late now!)

Suffice it to say that Gavin is thrilled with his new Sniper EFI System--and so am I!  He gets improved performance and fuel economy while he loses cold start problems and smelling like a gasoline attendant when he drives to work.  Me?  I get sweet car photos!

I have a 1975 Corvette Stingray that has a 496 cubic inch big block with Holley Sniper X-Flow EFI. It's making somewhere around 675 horsepower, and is an absolute joy to drive.

I decided to buy from EFI System Pro hoping for better customer service than, say, Summit or wherever else. Boy, they didn't disappoint. Chris Myer is a tremendous resource for info and questions. Emails are answered immediately. I highly recommend them to anyone deciding to go EFI. They are the only way to go in my mind. Thanks, Chris!

Chris has forgotten more about EFI than most EFI technicians will ever know. His insights and guidance are spot on. When you ask him a question you KNOW you're getting the right answer. Today we passed a RIGOROUS emissions test with flying colors and my '79 CJ7 has never in its life ran as smoothly or with as much power as it does now.
