Default Holley Dominator Question

Got a car in the shop to complete then tune.
I noticed that there is no Manifold Absolute Temperature sensor.
I know in the GM factory system, it needs to be there.
Id think the Holley would as well?
There is certainly a connector for it.

Thanks

Ron

Yes there is a connector for the MAT/IAT. You could zero out all of the tables that use it effectively removing it, but why not just add one? They're cheap and readily available.

15 bucks and a hole in the intake,, or IIRC the dominator has a un-used port for vacuum that it fits in,, center back of the carb in the base...

i have the terminator, which i think is really similar software. I plan on using the gm IAT sensor...the data for the gm sensor is populated in the drop down menu...as well as a couple others...chrysler, ford etc

It does have a Dominator intake on it.
The one threaded port is being used.
Holley sure could have added more vacuum/boost sources on that thing.
Ill have to buy a multi port manifold for it to connect the FPR, BOV etc to. That stuff all needs to be finished.
Edelbrock got it right on their intakes.

And I meant its going to run on methanol.

Thanks Doug. Ill shoot you some photos.

The Holley only has the IAT (MAT) lead, mont. incoming air, but you prob could put the
sensor anywhere. I know some guys will use it as a safety if intake air temps get
to high, some add fuel to kill it, not sure how that works out.

If it has a Holley HiRam, there is a port in the ear that takes a stock MAP sensor. Also, the cast pad in the back of the Hi-Ram is pretty big, so extra holes can easily be added.

Thanks Andrew.
I ordered a vacuum/boost manifold that will get me all the ports I need.

There are numerous items to fix and complete on this car before we even attempt any dyno work.

Glad to help Ron. A manifold is a good idea and should be mounted off the engine, so that the sensors don't vibrate.
