Default Meth solenoid choices - 04-23-2014, 09:42 AM

I currently have a devils own 300psi solenoid and its not compatible with the jb4's fsb. The solenoid draws 4.75 amps and the fsb only has a 3amp fuse. There is an older 250psi solenoid that works fine with the fab but im not sure of the amps on that one. What solenoids are u guys using anlong with the fsb? I dont like the cooling mist solenoid so i didnt get it but now its looking like its my only option.

I'm using the DO 300psi solenoid with the FSB and haven't had any issue's. Are you basing you information on Amp #'s or actually having the fuse blow?

I can't see the Solenoid actually drawing the full 4.75amps but I could be wrong.

Interesting.. Like I said I haven't had any issue's but, I just recently replaced my 2 yr old Cooling mist solenoid with the DO 300psi one. I'll keep an eye on it for now.

If i were u i would check it good. 1 fuse blew in 2 days and the other blew in 1 day. My kit is wired exactly as the diy for the bms kit. I sonce then put a relay between the solenoid and the fsb's ground wire and its working fine. Im just looking for a way to eliminate all the headache.

I've been running the DO 300psi solenoid with the JB4 FSB as well with no issues...
