Default New high speed valve?

COOLINGMIST HSV $169. Found this by following a Google banner ad.
This might be the inexpensive HSV we need to run off our MS/EManage/other ecus.

And digging a little deeper, it looks like CoolingMist is only 45 minutes from me. Hmmm

Didn't you read their writeup?

"This can only be used with a Coolingmist Varicool controller."



Seriously though, nice looking find. Must... Resist... Temptation to spend money...

Sweet. Thx.
I plan to stop by at their show room sometime in the next week or so. They said I can bring my DMM and poke around on it. But they can't give me any info because "a competitor would steal it."

yeah, but also in their defense, they said they would give me a hand installing the valve to see how it works before I bought it. which was cool of them to offer.

but I don't have WI set up yet, and I was planning on using the DO stuff.

Ben,

I am a tech at coolingmist and saw your question here. We have been getting alot of questions and others that want to run this with an ECU or something other than Vari-Cool. Its not impossible of course, however the ECU or other PWM device must be within certain specs. I will be able to release full specs with you shortly, maybe tomorrow or Friday. These vavles are extremely fast and have a sweet spot of 400 to 600 HZ. If your ECU runs less than 400 HZ it will not be able to open and close the valve fast enough and you will get poor results.

I will be in touch with you shortly. If the moderator will be kind enough not to ban us I will be glad to post them on here for you.

haha that's really damn funny right there.

So the hydra can run 800 Hz. Too fast?

(I already have an aquamist valve, but I'm curious)

Thank you for your kind words. You set a great example for everyone here. Do you think we should not protect our investment? My company has designed and engineered every single controller on our website. I doubt any other US methanol injection company can make that claim. When you spend the money and time to design products you need to protect your investment.

Engineering our products is an exhausting process and there are many "copy cats" out there.

We will be releasing certain information shortly about our valve. Infact, I would like work with BEN to make a nice PWM valve for his ECU. Even if our valve does not work great in its current state, perhaps we can make some engineering changes.

If you begin to turn this into the mess you have over in the SRT forums you are gone.

Its been stated many times by CM on other foums that DO is not their competition.

My first setup was built with parts from CM. The parts worked great but I got a bad vibe from the owner when watching how he conducted business online. Once I decided I wanted to sell kits I found Chance at Devils Own to be helpful. I think I moved 125+ in the last year...........thanks to almost everyone on this forum who is rocking a DO kit

CM can stay if they wanna play nice. Nothing wrong with another point of view. I have just seen how it goes.......

Second item in the sig, man. And it's been great so far- actually no problems to relate at all. I ended up with a pretty unconventional tank setup but it works for me.

Not to thread hijack too much, but I wish y'all had a nozzle that can be installed and removed from the outside. I bought one from coolingmist to play with, but it doesn't have a hex portion anywhere on it- it's all thread.

I'd really like to have something like the Aquamist nozzle, only with a 1/4" QD fitting rather than that push-barb thing. Oh well...

Keep squirtin'.

There are 2 sides to every story, we dont just bash someone for the purpose of doing it. When we see something as an attack, we dont hold back. Chance and myself have had many fights, I agree. About 6 months ago we sent each other PMs and called a truce. Neither of us have crossed that line. when people leave us alone, we respond in kind.


now if you quit bashing my company and slandering the owner like you have 2 times in this thread, we will all get along fine... deal?

To say that DO is not our competition is probably not accurate. I agree we probably said it exactly like that in the past. DO is not our DIRECT competitor. I think thats more accurate. We focus most of our efforts on our primary competitor, but all competition is good.

If anyone has any questions about the valve that I can answer feel free to ask. I will have more details later for a spec sheet.
