Speedtech is recalling certain Nitrous Solenoid Valves, part number 100-2115, used in nitrous oxide systems for drag racing.

Due to improper welding, the affected valves may separate when under pressure, either during installation or during use of the nitrous system, resulting in the piston ejecting.

If the piston ejects, it can increase the risk of injury to those nearby or possibly damage other nearby components.

Speedtech notified the affected owners and replaced the valves free of charge. Additional owner notifications will not be sent.

For more information, owners can reach Speedtech Customer Service at (205) 331-4972.
