In case you are wondering why the shape of the holes at the base of the valve is OVAL, as opposed to ROUND as in the OEM part. The reason for the change is for better and easier positioning of the valve and screw on during the installation process.

What will you be selling these for each?

That depends on whether he can convince us that the other ones are no good...

Thanks for all your support.

They are coming SOON. The exact delivery time by the manufacturer has not been committed yet. I think 30 days from now is not totally out of question.

What is coming for free within the package for each solenoid you buy:
1. two OEM screws with part number as 11367839846
2. one OEM O-ring with part number as 11367836238

And every 4 solenoids you buy, I will throw in a free specialty tool, T20 Torx Bit to work with the Solenoid Valve screws: 83300495134. I know this tool helps me tremendously and makes the DIY job much, much easier. I do not even need to take off the radiator to get more space with the help of this tool. You guys will love it too.

So these are exact replicas of the OEM solenoids that perform to oe specs? Not trying to sound doubtful but it's been a roller coaster on these things. I just don't understand how several people could not get the cost justified for half of current market value, yet you can get them for $120 a pop? Don't get me wrong, I'm rooting for you, but my heart has been crushed one too many times.
