-10% Terminator X MPFI Kit for GM 4.8, 5.3, and 6.0 Truck Engines 97-07

What's Terminator X?

Holley's Terminator X family of EFI Systems are standalone engine management systems that closely replicate some of Holley's most advanced engine management systems but at a much more budget-friendly price. This PDF gives a highly detailed comparison of the Terminator X and X Max to engines built using the Holley HP and Dominator ECUs. To summarize, Holley was able to leave out some features found to be less-necessary by the majority of users and, in doing do, slash the price of a full-featured EFI System by half.  If you're switching your carbureted engine to multi-point EFI or are swapping a fuel-injected engine into your ride and need to stay on a budget, this is the EFI system for you.

Here are some of the features that are included in each Terminator X kit:

  • *Except "Tuner" versions
  • **Requires hardware not included with Terminator X system to implement
  • ***X Max Version Only

Different Terminator X EFI Systems For Different Applications

Yes, there are quite a few different Terminator X EFI System--nearly 100 with more on the way.  All Terminator X systems include either a Terminator X or Terminator X Max ECU. The Terminator X Max ECU provides connectivity for transmission control and drive-by-wire harnesses and is included only in those kits that require one or both of these features. Both ECUs include an on-board 1-BAR MAP sensor or you can add an external MAP sensor for boosted applications. On-Board Diagnostic LEDs display the status of ECU Power, Engine Run, Wideband Status, TPS Calibration, Crank Signal, and Cam Signal

In addition to the ECU the kit all Terminator X / X-Max systems include the following:

  • ECU Power Harness
  • Application-Specific Main Harness
  • 3.5-inch Touchscreen LCD Display with Setup Wizard app*
  • Custom 4-input / 4-output harness pre-configured for two Electric Fans, A/C Kick, and A/C Shutdown
  • Bosch LSU 4.9 Wideband O2 Sensor
  • *Except "Tuner" versions

What is the "Tuner" Version?

When the Terminator X system is installed by a professional tuner they use the Terminator X Software to create a tune and do not require the setup wizard on the handheld display to build the initial configuration. The end user might then choose to upgrade to a higher level of dash or digital display and have no use for the handheld display that is included in the standard version. By opting for the Tuner Version, the 3.5-inch Handheld Touchscreen LCD Display is replaced with a CAN-to-USB harness.  The difference in price can be either pocketed or used toward the purchase of the larger display.

What Else Will I Need?

  • EFI Fuel Pump (Many great options here)
  • Pre- and Post-Pump Filters
