I am sure it is a wire splice, toggle, relay, etc. I checked under the car where the vacuum valve block is located and disconnected the "fuel injector" style plug and ran 12v+ to the pins on that box and nothing happened. Of course I started the car first. I wonder if the vacuum block is different in a vette which operates the way I want the ZL1 to behave. I would pay $50 for a kit with instructions.

based on the current prices for some of kits I would think you could get people to pay $50-75 pretty easy.

$100 might be an issue as that would put you on the expensive side.

I would pay $50 just not have to cut without blinking. $75 I would be on the fence might cave and buy. $100 I would probably hack around on my own solution.

So here is the deal:

OEM HARNESS COST $23.95
RELAY AND SWITCH COST -$17.95
WIRING - $3.00
BOX - $1.00
PACKING MATERIAL - $1.00
LABOR TO BUILD IT - $20

Then we must make a profit.

Does not look like we can build it with standard mark up and come close to $50

Guess we will keep doing them in house only.

OR

We sell instructions on how to do it for - $20 and you have to source all the parts.

I would definitely pay $75-$100 for a true plug n play switch that would allow complete control of the exhaust valves (i.e. closed, open and factory). Wireless/bluetooth would be an added bonus.

I would expect to double my money on every transaction B4 ever considering it. Got to contribue to fixed costs (overhead) and indirect set up costs. After running a business for 25 years, my time and effort is priceless. Was never paid for this in the early years......you learn as you get older.

No dog in this hunt but at the risk of offending OP $100.00 seems very reasonable for a plug & play solution,especially coming from such a reputable vendor with a stellar 'customer support' reputation. If you can afford the ride-just sayin'. Kit will be 'copied' and whored out soon enough anyway. Just my .02 which what I understand now costs us .05 to produce,lol.

not saying I won't pay $100. If Andy will collect the parts and his knowledge, I will pay $100 for sure. There is nothing that makes me happier than paying for quality parts that fit well and work as advertised. His air intake system and scoop make others look second rate. I am not trying to cheat anyone out of their design or hard work. After reading the parts list, I see this is not just a relay and a few connectors. As a business owner, I totally understand. If this procedure/solution was a simple one, someone would have chimed in with a scematic by now. Out of respect for Andy, I would not "whore out" the directions or parts list on this forum if he decides to make this happen for me. Hell, I wish I lived closer than 1200 miles away from his shop so I could drop the car off and he could rig it for me.

I'd give anything to have a PnP setup to open and close the valves whenever I wanted; Idle and driving. It's the only thing holding me back from getting headers. My other half refuses to let me do it unless I can have cutout style functionality :( for volume purposes.

Andy installed my system. Worth every penny when you have headers.
