    How will I control the transmission with the Sniper EFI?

    You will need an external transmission controller.
    I prefer the Powertrain Control Solutions TCM-2000.
    But there are plenty of options out there to choose from.

    I just thought of something. I wonder if it would be a good idea for Holley to offer their own stand-alone transmission controller?

    Possibly. They would have to gauge how many people step up to the Dominator strictly for the added transmission control. Yes, the Dominator adds a lot of other features, but is auto transmission control the biggest factor. A stand-alone transmission controller would need to communicate back with an HP, and whatever is used on the Sniper. And it would have to cost less than cost of Dominator - cost of HP. Not sure if that is possible, or even desirable. Andrew

    Of course it would be. Offer it in a CAN configuration, so that it can be added to any Holley system. It doesn't need to offer any extra ins/outs. It just needs to be able to control up to 6 transmission speeds and a torque converter. (Hoping they catch the drift and make it an option for 6L80E & 6R80E guys with have no aftermarket options.) It would definitely bridge the HUGE price gap between an HP system and a Dominator with all the transmission stuff. Could make a nice middle point that I know I could sell a ton of.

    I thought so. I'll suggest it to Holley.

    Any thoughts on the recently released MicroSquirt Transmission Controller? At $450 with harness, it's less than half the cost of the PCS unit, and I imagine being part of the MS line, should be highly configurable. Mike

    I don't trust anything MegaSquirt puts out any further than I can throw it. I have not been impressed yet. Are they functional, yes. Most of the time they will function just fine. I'll leave it at that.

    MSD offers a stand-alone transmission controller. So now that MSD is under the Holley umbrella, it should be pretty easy to integrate.
    As far as the 6L80E/90E transmission in stand-alone form, there's only one company that offers that's Powertrain Control Solutions. -Greg

    They won't try to integrate the MSD Atomic TCM (LINK). I was told they're contemplating a stand-alone transmission controller for the Holley Sniper EFI kits.
