I am looking for a new and improved product, both Phuzz and IPd's have had issues so I am hoping that this is IPD's improved product.Looks like the exact same MAC solenoid that phuz has. Phuz's is $54.99 plus shipping. IPD's is $89.95 plus shipping. In my eyes looks like your paying the few extra bucks only for the hardware.
Both the Ingersoll Rand and MAC valves can not operate reliably in temperatures over 120 degrees F, and as we all know, the under hood temperatures get far hotter than that.soupandspoons said:Tom, you should mention that he'll have to solder the leads on the MAC valve to the plug from his stock TCV if he's going to just buy the MAC valve.
According to the MAC data sheet for the 35 series valves, the operating range is 0*F to 120*F (-18*C to 50*C). I wouldn't put the valve too close to the engine/turbo, or you'll definitely be exposing it to temperatures well above that range.

+1!! I've had Phuz's TCV since early this year, and I've been running it on my stock engine. No problems so far.Looks like the exact same MAC solenoid that phuz has. Phuz's is $54.99 plus shipping. IPD's is $89.95 plus shipping. In my eyes looks like your paying the few extra bucks only for the hardware.
Not sure... I don't ever recall seeing him on here. He's probably not a sponsor, therefore not allowed to promote his products. I've traded some emails with him about his products and he's super responsive and helpful. I'm sure I'll do business with him sooner or later.Was he banned from this site?
