So these are just controlling the carbs reference to vacuum or boost without modifying it? Is that correct? Cool


the solenoids just control when the power valve opens. normally, on a n/a engine, the PV is held close with vacuum. when the throttle opens, vacuum drops and the power valve opens (you probably already know this). with boost pressure in the intake equal to fuel bowl pressure, the PV doesnt want to open. basically what i did, was control it with external vacuum and pressure sources.

WOW those brackets coming off like that is incredible! That is some quality control right there. They both failed at the same time. LOL. Me thinks me needs a boosted street car with some serious HP. It looks and sounds really good.

This thing is going to be a beast and as usual you do excellent work. That is crazy how that bracket broke that would have been bad news for sure. Can't wait for you to get it to the track.
