Fuel Delivery Delight From Sniper’s 1966-1967 B-body EFI Conversion Tanks


Dodge and Plymouth B-body models from 1966 and 1967 continue to gather steam in the aftermarket parts industry as sky-high prices on their 1968 thru 1971 brethren continue to rise. Mopar’s more affordable and senior members of the muscle car circuit are even becoming easier to inject with the new Holley Sniper EFI conversion fuel tank system (P/N 19-183).

Fuel delivery is often the most time-consuming and complex part of any electronic fuel injection (EFI) swap. Most kits have made it easy enough to bolt a throttle body on top of an existing intake, but that usually leaves the user trying to figure out a fuel strategy. In-line electric pumps are the quickest and cheapest, but can be loud, easily-starved, and subject to road debris. The ultimate is an in-tank pump, just like the OEMs have used on factory-injected cars since the 1980s.

Therein lies the benefit of Sniper EFI’s conversion tank setup. The tank itself is shaped exactly like a stock, carbureted tank save for a small recessed area near the front. Two cutouts in that area allow space for an in-tank electric pump and bolt-in sending unit. No modifications to the car body are necessary for an installation that amounts to a quiet, reliable ride.

On the outside, a powder coat finish protects underlying galvanized steel for maximum corrosion resistance. On the inside, special baffling makes sure the 255 liter-per-hour sucker is steadily fed. The kit includes a tank, fuel pump, hanger assembly, fuel level sending unit, and new straps to make your carburetor kick clean and complete.
