We have tested out a few new soleinod valves like the the same one viper, the Edge and spider mini uses but the price of it is through the roof so ...

Re: P600 0x53 Error

I think it would require a code change to use a different set up as the timings would be off? If its a new T-Dozer stepper motor you are after PM me and i can send you a link on where to get it.

Re: help me step motor tics

Can you get a video up of the stepper, I think it would help us diagnose the problem better.
