I did a "dry fire" of the solenoids, they seem to be working. The nitrous solenoid APPEARS to be louder, and when I touched it after the dry firing, it was WAY hotter than the fuel solenoid.

You should hold your solenoids open for more than 20 seconds?! I've never heard that or done that.

I'm sure he meant to type "shouldn't". The solenoid will overheat and burn out if you leave it on too long (unless it's designed for a 100% duty cycle).

The solonoid shouldn't be held open or left pressurized for extended periods of time.

I have never had a nitrous solonoid become warm, if anything they're always cold to the touch because of the n2o flowing through them.

What brand solonoid are you running?

NOS :-/

I was going to do the Edelbrock conversion (Edelbrock Pro-series solenoids, the big ones, shark nozzle, bottle, and pressure gauge) but the NOS system is working admirably for me now. No issues; the heat of the N20 solenoid in the dry-fire appears to be an isolated incident.

And no, I don't hold the solenoids open for long periods of time or leave them under pressure.
