I love that design and think its a good one. I hate my GM starter solenoid its down by the headers and gets really hot. So when I turn off my car and turn it back on after running for awhile it gets heat soaked and will barely turn over.

I would like to run a firewall solenoid and was wondering if anybody has converted their started solenoids for GM like this?
