Talking Custom Solenoid Rack

To all forum members that might have slow responsive turbo spooling and bad solenoid valves etc, this may be beneficial to you

After saxyman built a custom rack which was widly spread within the community, and recreating this custom rack wasn't quite as easy.

Benefit of this custom solenoid rack includes:

1)Eliminates stock solenoids which fails quick easily due to location
2)Relocate of new solenoids result in long lasting solenoid
3)These solenoids are rated at 100psi therefore it is great for aftermarket twins like BNRs if you wanted higher boost
4)A much more smooth spool transition from primary to secondary turbo.
5)Better reliability on the solenoid system which results a much more enjoyable twin turbo system
6)Responsiveness of solenoid reacts quicker than stock. Some might noticed a difference some might not. Therefore do NOT expect a "faster" response compared to stock solenoid system. However I believe it is "quicker".

More information and pictures of the build can be found HERE

This kit consist of:

Item Quantity
Solenoid Valve - TCP, CRV, CCA, TCV
Manifold
Connector 1/8 Barb x 10-32
10-32 plug with seal
Fitting 32-001
Adjust elbow 1/8 X 10-32 MALE
Viton check valves
Y split plastic barb 1/8"
vacuum caps
bolt and nuts
Mounting Bracket 1
Wires
Blade Connectors
Bullet Connectors - Male
Bullet Connectors - Female
Heat Shrink
Butt connector
Installation Guide in PDF form
Vacuum diagram for correct routing of hoses

Solenoid Specs:
Viton seals
Stainless Steel internals
Molded coil (resistant to water and temperatures in excess of 300deg)
Custom aluminum manifold
100psi rating
Electroless Nickel Plated Brass fittings
Better flow and reaction time than stock solenoids
Rebuildable

Shipping anywhere in the lower 48 (overseas customers: please contact me prior to purchase to get additional information on shipping)

Group Buy close-out: We have 3 months till this GB closes. However if we can fill up the 10 spots on the list, I can start the run right away. IF WE ARE ABLE TO FILL 20 SPOTS ON THE LIST, 1 LUCKLY BUYER WILL BE ABLE TO RECEIVE HIS SOLENOID RACK FREE OF CHARGE!!!!

Shipping time: Once I begin to place orders for parts, you can expect about 3-4 weeks before the finished system arrives at your door. IF ANYTHING WERE TO COME UP, I ASSURE EVERYONE THAT I WILL BE CONSISTENTLY IN CONTACT THROUGH EMAIL OR PMs.

For this GB to work, I would require a non-refundable of $250 up front payment.(Why such a high non-refundable? Because once the order is sent through, there's no refund on my part and these solenoids are freakn expensive. However you will get JUST the solenoids itself if you've decided to back out) If pay by paypal, please USE THIS CALCULATOR to figure out the fee and the payment w/o shipping cost for now. As shipping is to be determined.

Purchase instructions:
Payment can be made via paypal to this address:
[email protected]
I also accept personal checks, money orders or cash (if you decide to drop off the money and you are local)


When you send payment, please be sure to include the following:
Full name
Forum User Name
A good shipping address
Phone number preferred, but OK without it.

If you have any questions not specifically addressed in this thread, please do not hesitate to ask. Posting in this (or the other) thread, PMing, e-mailing, and calling me are all completely acceptable forms of contact.

Thanks for your interest and support!!! Lets get this GB started!!!

No problem.

Guys, if you are serious about this, please add yourself on the list as this GB will be open until we hit 10 people. Therefore just add yourself on the list to be sure to save yourself a spot so we are ready, we can pull the trigger and get this going. Thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Total cost is at $525 + shipping right now for 10 people. If we can get 15, it will be 500. And if we can get 20, there will be one lucky person with a free kit =].

Just FYI, for anyone planning to stay sequential, this may be the best money you ever spent. I have had the original kit for several years and am very happy with it. One of the greatest benefits is that you can test any vacuum circuit (relative to the turbos) without going under the manifold. just hook up test gauges and run them into the cockpit. Watch exactly when transition occurs (and when it reverts to primary). If you have a PFC/datalogit, you can adjust transition elements as well.
You have to be a "do-it-yourselfer" for all of this, but if you are still driving a 3rd gen and have twin sequential setup, you are a "do-it-yoursefer" by definition!
Good luck!

Do you guys want to go ahead with this GB? If so, I will start product and accept payment once this is confirmed.

After this initial GB, I will probably bump up the price as my vendor just told me the price of the solenoids and fittings just went up 10%. I want to get this going. What ya'll think?

LOL you are quick! Well, once I get all of you committed, I will start production. Trust me, I want more people out there with these than the crappy stock solenoid system.

I will probably continue to offer this product as long as we are able to get more interests in the future. However it will be at least a minimum of 5 committed orders before I can proceed.

1. oyvindjs
2. RENESISFD - Confirmed
3. schleprx7 - Confirmed
4. twinsinside
5. wadejg - Confirmed

2 more confirmations then we can get this rolling!!!!

Great news, we've got all 5 spot filled and confirmed. I will contact my distributor to get a solid number on delivery date. Once I have that settled I will start requesting payments. Thank you for your patience.

Guys, I just received confirmation that once I place an order. I shall receive the shipments within 7-10 business days. That's approximately 2 week lead time. And it will take about once week for assembly and get ship out. I would suggest that you shall receive your custom rack in a time frame from 3-4 weeks MAX!

However, do expect the unexpected because sometime the distributor WILL make mistakes which I wont have the power to control. However I have confirmed that they have the parts we need in stock. Therefore you are ready to send in your payments.

I take payments in forms of:

Paypal E-check ($5 fee)
Paypal credit card/services (Please send in $257.78 for the fee)
Paypal Gift : under Send Money, there is a tab that you can select either "PURCHASE" or "PERSONAL" . Select "PERSONAL" and click on GIFT and continue. (You will waive the transaction fee if it is directly withdrawn from your account. Remember if you pay with a credit card, there will also be a fee.)
Cashier's check
Cash: If you are local

If paying by payment, under Message section, please include:

Your Forum User Name
Your Full Name
Complete shipping address
Contact phone number and/or email


Thank you for your support!

My paypal is: [email protected]
