I agree and completely understand what you are saying. I didn't return the valve because it wasn't worth the $30.00 to me to do so. I had been running it for quite a while before the wires failed. It was easier to throw it in the garbage.
I know I don't need to sell my skills here but honestly I own a shop and tune cars and have build tons of custom parts and have tried new innovative idea. Search some of my build threads if you care.
This is where mine failed. If you have a rubber grommet like the GS then great you aren't using the same solenoid I did. There were exposed wires where they meet the solenoid. It had nothing to do with my workmanship. They started to get brittle and eventually 1 of the legs broke off.
it's fine I don't care at all which solenoid everyone is using and hope it works perfect for you all. I wish you al lthe best of luck.
