  • 4+ info

    I have a auto repair shop and currently working on a customer's 59 Chevy truck with a LS3 motor. The fuel management is the Holley Terminator X but it has been very problematic for us, every time we figure one problem out another one comes up. Looking into the Pro-Flo 4+ as an alternative. So far in my research I haven't seen any major issues with it and just wanted to get the opinion of others who are using it, with DBW. DBW seems to be a very common issue on the Holley system. I have installed Pro-Flo systems on other engines and they were trouble free after initial set-up, but have no experience with the 4+. What hurdles have people had to overcome? Any software issues? Thanks

    There was just a small update on the App.....not sure what it was for.

    Edelbrock only builds their products on actual motors.......hence why the Ford and Chrysler don't have to many Calibration maps....they haven't had time to do camshaft changes on them.

    You just need to make sure to use the right throttle body, and gas pedal that is recommended..... don't use the cheap knock offs.

    The only real issue with the new 4 series is the size of the connector, when you mount the ECU inside the vehicle.... it's kind of on the big side, when passing through a firewall hole.

    I haven't had a chance to play with one yet ( got 2 other vehicles I'm working on ) but I'm 100% sure you shouldn't have issues.

    And just to be clear:
    I don't work for Edelbrock.
    I buy all my product from where ever I see a good deal.
    I've never been given product from Edelbrock, and I'm not paid by Edelbrock to post here.
    I've used their products since the 70's, and seen that they needed some help on the forum.
    So for good Karma I help out here.

      I just seen your post on the Holley forum......by the end of today there's going to be at least 2 people saying "give me $$ and I'll help you fix it".

      Anyway.

      You should make sure the throttle body, and gas pedal are on the approved list of components that will work.
      This is the Edelbrock list, just to help to identify the parts: https://misc.edelbrock.com/forum/LS-...-Reference.pdf

      If your parts are a match, and Danny's link(s) don't work......he only does Fords.
      Then you will have to Manually go through all the Holley settings......their wizard setup is not to be trusted.

      If you really just want to pack it in, and get the truck out of the shop.
      Here is a list/matrix of the Edelbrock parts for LS motors: https://misc.edelbrock.com/forum/PF4...tion-Chart.pdf

        Thanks, bite-me. We decided to bite the bullet and ditch the Holley in favor of the Pro-flo 4 Plus. From my experience so far with other Pro-flo installs I'd say Edelbrock nailed it, no issues whatsoever.

        The truck did come to us with the wrong throttle body installed. It ran much better after replacing it but we're just tired of a new issue coming up every week. Looking forward to the Pro-flo 4 Plus.

          Cool.

          And the Customer will be very happy with how the App works.

          Really only tip I can give ( common issue ) is when GM switched from the 24x to the 58x ( 58x is more reliable ) they some times used a crossover extension ( about 3 to 4 inches long ) on the Sensor.....I believe Edelbrock has it covered in the instructions.

            I'm interested in installing an Edelbrock port injection system (Pro-flo 4+?) in my 1963 Ford Falcon Ranchero. The first thing I need to know is which in-tank pump do I need, and does it need a return line?

              Edelbrock doesn't list a fuel pump for the vehicle.....for Fords they only did the newer Mustangs.

              The Edelbrock fuel system kits #3651 ( 43 psi ), and #3653 ( 58 psi ) have been successful used on all types of vehicles, On all the Pro-Flo systems.

              If you don't know what fuel pressure you will be using. Then kit #3604 is adjustable for all systems.

              You can download the Pro-Flo 4 App to a compatible Android device, and the instructions for all the systems are in PDF form, inside the App.
              Last pages of the Instruction Manual will have a engine matrix that you use to select what Fuel Pressure you should use.
