    Jetworks Valve Relocation Mod

    While installing my Jetworks kit I thought that I would like to secure the valve to something rather than let it bounce around in the engine bay. Here is what I came up with. What do you guys think? Also the zip tie is coated in heat-shrink tubing, so it should keep the valve from rotating.

    nice but i dont understand what you gain from this... other than having a pain in the ass when the battery needs to come out. looks like it makes things more complicated... my jetworks doesn't bounce around my hull. maybe use less hose?

    I wonder how much the flow is impeded because of those 90 degree bends? I'm with IdiotGPR, though. My valve doesn't bounce around.

    A+ on the thinking behind it, though.

    Nothing really to gain from this. I just wanted (what I thought was) a more clever way to access the valve. I was also concerned about it bouncing around and changing its setting. But mainly I wanted a cleaner look. This way allows me to pull the hose off the singer and rotate the valve in place with one hand (once I loosen the ziptie) until I get my desired setting. As far as the battery removal goes.... you just undo the ziptie and pull out on the hoses a little. The entire setup can then be moved up and out of the way. Do people remove their battery allot? As far as the reduced flow from the 90's go, I would bet things will be fine since the pressure is very high and since the entire engine is feed with a similar sized hole which also goes through some direction changes. All in all I feel this will work, but if it does not I will let you all know and take pics of the carnage.

    Thanks for the comments

    Once you adjust the valve, you set it and forget it. Looks like a lot of work for a simple installation.
