Funny that Labonte does not advertise it as a PWM solenoid though the evo thread (?) indicates that it is. I think Labonte just uses it as an on-off only, in place of a check valve, to reduce back pressure. Their high-end 3D map controller still uses PWM on the pump motor judging by their diagram.
he doesn't advertise it on his site at all. The solenoid he lists is different, and not for PWM. IF you look at most WMI companies, they pretty much have the same stuff, and some even buy parts from each other. I think it was bought from R&D, and I happened to find a thread talking aobut it.

Got the mouse valve hooked up. It's so small. It's about the size of a 20 oz bottle cap. Seems to be stopping the flow.

Sorry, seems to be stopping the flow when not powered up. AKA seems to b working fine. Just realize that the flow rating may not be the best for someone wiht power.

nah the flow rate is pretty decent and this seems like a nice solution by all means take your time and get some real answers for us. As i might try this myself if it shows merit.

My real answer will come when I get the chance to boost - brake. I had my last setup with about 2 feet of hose after the check valve. It would cause a stumble if I had to get into boost to merge, then have the obligatory grandma in the white kei truck slam on the brakes because the road got a little smaller, or whatever random reason there was.

No stumbling so far. Been trying to make it happen, but it won't. So far I have nothing bad to say about it. It's SS, so it should last a while.

i mean how does it stop the flow is it designed with a viton seal does the stainless just fit that tightlly together etc. Or is it set up with an internal coil like a fuel injector.

Aquamist (Water injection) questions and answers here... - Page 93 - NASIOC

I honestly don't know what it is made of. I kind just went for the cheap purchase. You can read about it some on that page.
