    looking to see where everyone mounted their solenoids. im looking to move mine so i dont get heat from track officials. i was already warned about the placement of them. ive since moved the fpr to comply as well with the nhra rule book.

    heres a picture of where mine are mounted

    Great question. Now I don't have to ask :sneaky:
    Nice picture so we can all see how you have it set up before you move them.
    50 or 75 wet shot??? Or bigger?

    I had mine on the driver side firewall. A cdi mount like that used on the sparktech boxes that mounts it on the driver side strut tower could work also.

    im thinking about modding the solenoid brackets and doing something similar to this mount for the ls. NX-2.jpg

    go this route using the top two throttle body mounts then bend them so they sit back towards the intake plenum.

    looks like one of my better options. i thought about doing it so they sit on top of the plenum that way theres nothing to get in the way

    What is your LS in? Sounds FUN!!! I ran a 150 wet plate system on my 1973 Vega GT that had a 327 small block in it and it LOVED it.
