ON ORDER FROM QUANTUM
We discovered a 20+ year old technology that no one else has really researched: Variable Valve Timing. Everyone knows that VVT was invented and implemented to create more power at lower rpms for smaller displacement motors. What shocked us was that the system was inefficient and the culprit was the solenoid making the engine mechanically inefficient. We found that by making a better solenoid, we can make the engine more mechanically efficient thus unlocking the factory detuned power! There is currently no other single modification that can do what Quantum Solenoid does in the market to our knowledge.
WHAT is Quantum Solenoid?
Quantum Solenoid is an innovative product that enhances the engine of just about any car that has Variable Valve Timing (VVT) using oil pressure. It is a plug and play unit that is otherwise known as the Oil Control Valve. Some cars have a solenoid for just the intake VVT, other 4 cylinder engines may have both the intake and exhaust solenoids, while V6 and V8 engines may have up to 4 solenoids.
The solenoid consists of parts as described below:
The solenoid controls how much and how fast the oil is passed through and into the cam phasers to control the cam advancement or retardation as dictated by the Engine Control Module (ECM) or the computer. The solenoid is a slave unit that only functions within the parameter set forth by the ECM, so there is no way to go beyond the set cam advancement or retardation without having a Check Engine Light (CEL) light up in the dash. The only way to advance or retard the timing is by a tune, so if anyone says that they can advance the cam timing through a solenoid, it is definitely BS!
HOW does Quantum Solenoid work?
Quantum Solenoid works by making it possible for the oil pressure dictated by the ECM to reach faster and hold it better. By having the set oil pressure reach faster, the cam advancement is reached faster, making it possible for the valve timing to be more precise. This translates into a more mechanically efficient engine that can now rev faster and create a more complete and powerful combustion cycle.
So, by having a more complete and powerful combustion cycle, the power that was detuned by the factory can be regained. A 4 cylinder engine can see a modest gain in power of 10 hp and 8 torque while bigger displacement, more cylinder engines will see much more gains as seen in our Dyno results on our product pages.
With that said, we would like to really get away from the horsepower numbers game here because truthfully, horsepower and torque gains are not everything. Most people wouldn't be able to tell a 10 horsepower and 10 torque gain because the numbers do not translate directly to how the car feels.
The most important enhancement that Quantum Solenoid provides its customers is how the power gains are translated to the ground and how much more enjoyable the vehicle becomes to drive.
After installing Quantum Solenoids in their cars, most customers will notice a better throttle response, smoother power delivery, smoother shifts, and power all the way to engine redline. And of course, the car does become faster and in certain engines, the engine sound becomes deeper and growlier.
This all translates to what most customers say, "Day and night difference!"
WHY is Quantum Solenoid better?
Quantum Solenoid works because they are specifically made for the type of engine they are being put into. We have a proprietary formula for the spool design that enhances oil flow without exceeding limits of specific engines preventing CEL's.
Quantum Solenoid is built using five-axis CNC machined aerospace grade aluminum for the spool and the spool casing to better withstand higher thermal limits while being made to higher and tighter clearance tolerances.
Quantum Solenoid is made using a higher grade spring with nearly double the spring rate along with an Electromagnetic (EM) motor that provides almost double the thrust.
By going through the trouble of doing all this, it is the only way, we can make sure the solenoid can withstand repeated actuation, the thermal fluctuations, and most importantly be able to hold the oil pressure without premature drainage.
With the proprietary spool design, the oil flows faster, reaching the set oil pressure faster. With the machine aerospace grade aluminum parts, double the spring rate, and double the EM motor thrust force, the spool can be held in the correct position preventing oil flow when necessary.

If you have a DCT, this is probably going to be the best mod you get. Any hesitation in the transmission is gone. A little on the pricy side, but to extend the life of both the car and transmission with the added benefit of what ends up feeling like a much better car to drive; I say pick one of these up. 10/10 would buy again.
