Although the Holley setup is nice, the factory style crate motor ECU can also work very well if you have a tuner familiar with it. The out-of-the box crate motor tune is usually off though (too rich) so tuning is almost a must.
You are the first one I have seen complain about the 480. Most seem to think it is a good package.
