Hi Rodney,
hoping you can help me here.

I was wondering if the BRM 660 Cargo Box you had on your prius was able to hold any carry on luggage?

Unless I missed it elsewhere, the selector for Sienna only goes through 2016 models.
What does this little guy run MSRP and how much of a performance increase are you actually seeing? What about impact to fuel economy?

Hello @Lex !!!

I was just informed that the 2021+ Sienna Quantum Solenoid product will be available for sale soon !!!

Price range may hover around the current offerings for the previous generations of Sienna's at ~$600.00.

As far as HP I was told "It would be around 5-8hp. (Most gain would be on the higher rpm range, due to the unit for the Sienna is installed on the exhaust side."

And regarding MPG I was also told "Mpg drop would truly depends on the driver. In anything, they should see little to no lost in mpg." If the driver drives with a heavy foot, then I am sure then the MPG would go down accordingly.

Hope this helps !!!

  • Limited Life Time Warranty
**I currently have the BRM 864 model, it was replaced with the BRM 865.

It’s a Quantum Solenoid Tech Day !!!

Quantum Solenoid :

“1. What does Quantum Solenoid do?

A. Increases engine torque output for a wide range of engine speeds and increases power. You will feel the power difference right away after installing Quantum Solenoid. Engineers design the engines for maximum power, but manufacturers detune the engine for many reason. Quantum Solenoid helps to unleash the performance potential of the engines bringing your cars to life.

2. How does Quantum Solenoid do this?

A. More precise and quicker control of the variable valve timing achieves a cleaner and more complete combustion cycle providing better throttle response and less carbon build up. This translates to more usable power to the wheels and better acceleration.

3. Has Quantum Solenoid been tested?

A. Quantum Solenoid is a patented product that has been tested for over 5 years and over 10 million total miles.”

For more information visit : www.QSPWR.com for complete details !!!

The Quantum Solenoid product is available now for the 2021+ Toyota Sienna ...

Although this unit can be installed by the end user, professional installation is recommended.
