how to check if it is working???

Hey guy's like the title says how do I check to make sure it is working???

I would hate to go to the dyno to find out a wire is cut somewhere or something.

Thank's in advance!!

Hit the gas with it off, then hit the gas with it on. If you go much faster with it on, its working. Unless I'm confused on what you are asking.

-98 Mark VIII LSC, Procharger P600b, TR3650 swap and 3.73s.
-90 SC Automatic rustbucket winter beater
-97 Tbird Sport 4.6 Nice weather daily driver

Yeah I think so

What im asking is Im not gonna spray it til we get it on the dyno. Is there a way to check it like key on engine off push nos switch on and push thw Wot switch down and listen to hear the solenoid click if so it is working. same with the purge.

Would that work??

How about unplug the solenoid and with the engine running go to WOT and see if you have power and ground at the solenoid. The only thing that wouldn't test is the solenoid itself, but unless you have some reason to suspect that it is bad, checking for power and ground would confirm that everything else is wired up correctly.

what i do is this, is it a wet kit or dry?

i hook it up just as if i was to use it, pull the nozzle out of the intake track, get a plastic pop bottle or something along thoes lines, pull the n2o line out of the nozzle, stick the nozzle with the fuel line still attached into the bottle and HOLD ON TO THE N2O line, its under alot of pressure remember if you dont hold it it will flop around like a firehose.

start the car as normal and hit your button if you have it on a button or manually trip the wide open throttle switch, you dont have to rev the engine to wot cause your not putting any extra fuel/n2o into the engine so no worries. if you get fuel in the bottle and n2o gas in the air, your all good.

Dry and that sound's like the best way..
