Default Holley Sniper vs Terminator

What is the difference between the 2 systems besides the price? I'm hearing great about the Sniper and FITech EFI systems

Sniper is Chinese to compete with the Chinese Fitech. No upgrades or add on's.

Terminator is made in US and Canada. Uses an HP controller that can be used for other applications, including MPFI, and can support tons of features and add on's.

So where is it published they are both manufactured in China? I don't question, but like to verify before I commit $$$.

One more thing to take into consideration. Both the FITech and Sniper are fully enclosed. Imo that's not a good thing. If the ECU or MAP etc craps you have to send the whole thing back. You can't crack it open yourself as you'll void the warranty.
Plus the Terminator has more tunability. I'd do that instead.

I've heard that about the closed versions and that they have to be sent back to the manufacturer for any repairs

Wanted to post up a retraction. Last time I was at Holley, the Sniper was in development and was sent out for bid to China. That's the last I heard. Talked to Rick this morning and was told the bid was close enough to what they could do it for here, that they decided to manufacture the Sniper systems in Bowling Green, KY, in house. So Sniper EFI systems are made in the US.

Fi Tech is manufactured in China. Their parent company, Fuel Injection Technologies, LTD build and designs EFI systems for OEM Chinese vehicles, and FiTech is a spin off of that.

So hopefully that should help with anyone making a decision on these TB EFI systems. US made or China made.

Thanks for the update. With that news, I would make the Holley Sniper my choice.

The original question in this thread was Sniper vs Terminator, not country of origin. Not sure how this went in another direction.

I'd get the Terminator.
If you ever want to use a carb again or go MPFI like posted above, the HP ECU is still vary useful.
