Atomic EFI Handheld location?

Hello, Gents!

I just did a motor swap and went with an Atomic EFI system. After a tremendous amount of issues with electrical, we finally got her running.

We are fine tuning everything now and was wondering where you guys mounted your handhelds? I want mine to be visible and usable on the interior. I was thinking of making a bracket and mount it on my center console.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I found a "case" type holder for the handheld and fabricated a bracket to mount right under the dash.

Re: Atomic EFI Handheld location?

I'm having the same issue finding a permanent spot for my Holley 3.5" touch screen.

Right now since I'm still tuning (with laptop)and referencing the touch screen, I used doubled sided tape and the holley mount it came with and stuck it to the rear ashtray lid on the center console. I can grab it easy there and hold it while driving if I need to.

But eventually I may just unplug it,or see if it will fit inside the dash ashtray, my glove box is already full of electronics so that's out. I use the center console storage for the few things I carry so that's out.

No real good place to mount it permanently that's unobtrusive. Maybe just keep it in the trunk when tuning is mostly complete,use it as needed.

I will say that having my handheld mounted right under the dash in the "gauges" mode is great and easily accessible.

The Atomic EFI control panel is not particularly attractive so I just unplug mine and carry it in the glovebox so it stays with the car.

Re: Atomic EFI Handheld location?

I ran my Sniper hand held screen into my center console. I did not want it out in the open, and I did not want it taking anything away from the stock interior appearance.

I was under the impression that once the parameters are set it was self tuning after that and you didnt need the hand held. Possibly why there was no bracket included with the unit.
