    You're correct.

    Think carefully about spending the extra $200 for a Super. The extra money doesn't buy you anything until you spend another few hundred for the sensors. Even then, it doesn't buy you anything unless you step up to a digital dash since the handheld SW won't display fuel pressure or oil pressure in a natural way.

    I like the Super myself since I already have the extra sensors and I have a digital dash plus I use a laptop. However, in order to use the extra sensors I had to have a custom harness built that connects three sensors to the Sniper connector. Holley "forgot" to design a harness for the Super that allows you to actually plug in the sensors.

    The Super is a good idea but someone at Holley forgot to finish the design job. They need a harness and some upgraded SW before it is really useful for most people.

    One other thing to consider is if boost is in the future. The Super Sniper will support boost, but the regular Sniper was not designed to.
