blocks suck on street cars, show only, jus my opinion. i use ford style solonoids, never had a problem. ground them real good and use heavy wire, i use 1/0 on my whole set up., but even 2 guage is fine! i know with that meltdown looks like too, my boys heated up or stuck, whatever it did it fryed......all those blocks mostly are,, 3 cheap ass solonoids in a plastic container, fuck a cleaner look, i go for performance, if you dont want them showing, hide um........

MOTORCRAFT SW-3 OR ACCURATES ONLY!!!!!!!

THE BLOCKS ARE FINE YOU JUST HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THEM GROUNDED GOOD!!! AND DONT OVER LOAD THEM!!

IMO THOSE REBUILDABLE ONES ARE JUNK!!!

Accurates are the best. They are built far better than the blocks and hold up much better also. Dont let their price fool you... they are the cheapest AND the best, a very nice combination.

Internally their contact plates as well as the springs are much heavier duty. Buy a few different brand noids and dissect them... thats what I did, and the accurates win hands down. So called "heavy duty" solenoids in many cases are built even wimpier. Dont waste your money on anything else.

i've run the sw3's up to 96 volts.

most people have solenoid problems because they don't ground them properly.
