Thread: Help setting up new Terminator, no Dual Sync option on Wizard.

  1. #1

    Default Help setting up new Terminator, no Dual Sync option on Wizard.

    Hi, I finished installation of a new Terminator in place of an existing Sniper setup already running a Dual Sync distributor with a MSD box. When setting up the Wizard I came to a stop as there was only "Ford TFI or GM small HEI" listed under distributor used. I bought the Terminator over a year ago from Summit & have not had time to complete install until today, there was a supplement in the instructions slipped in for Dual Sync wiring diagram as if it was a late addition. I'm looking for assistance, maybe a software update for adding the Dual Sync that was not in the Terminator when I purchased it? If so how would I update? Thanks.

    If you're using the latest EFI software/ECU firmware and it's not listed in the Wizard, use the Holley EFI software to program your Global File. Read 2nd paragraph below:

    They're a small cap design, "plug & play" with Holley EFI, and no need for a modified Firing Order.
    The crank & cam sensor signals also provide sequential injection capability (MPFI applications).
    It's "plug & play" (into the 10-pin ignition connector on the EFI Main Harness) and requires a CD
    ignition box (Instructions). The MSD 6201 Digital 6A CDI box & 8253 HVC-2 coil are a great match.
    The MSD CD ignition box is wired as shown in the Holley EFI Wiring Manual:
    http://documents.holley.com/techlibr...10555rev17.pdf (Holley EFI Wiring Manual - Figure 11, Page 20)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM7r-DauCak (Holley EFI Dual Sync Distributor - YouTube Tech Video)
    A blank cap (LINK) is available, if the user decides to convert to Coil-Near-Plug/DIS later (no CDI box).
    Of course, this component can also be used as a crank and/or cam sync/oil pump drive unit.

    The Custom Ignition Parameters (in System Parameters) for the Holley EFI Dual Sync Distributor:
    Ignition Type ............. ― "Custom"
    Crank Sensor Type ..... ― "1 Pulse/Fire"
    Sensor Type .............. ― "Digital Falling"
    Inductive Delay .......... ― "100.0 usec" ( Synchronization info, adjusted per application.)
    Ignition Reference Angle ― "50°" ( Inherent rotor-phasing of this unit.)
    Cam Sensor Type ........ ― "Single Pulse" ( "Not Used" for TBI, unless CNP ignition.)
    Sensor Type .............. ― "Digital Falling"
    Output Setup Type ..... ― "Points Output" ( CDI box ground trigger.)
    Dwell Time ................. ― "2.0 msec" ( Do not set this to 1.5 msec!)
    EFI Software & ECU Firmware Versions:
    EFI SOFTWARE: click "Help" tab (top toolbar) & "About Holley EFI".
    ECU FIRMWARE: click "Sync With ECU" & "Get ECU Info" (Key-on/USB connected).
    The latest EFI software & ECU firmware can be downloaded here:

    http://documents.holley.com/techlibr...rmwarerev1.pdf (How To Update ECU Firmware)
    Before updating firmware, ensure the current Global File is saved somewhere, since it will be erased from the ECU.
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.
