pull the solenoid off and drill your hole their, this way a hole is already their so it is stronger. In my opinion this type of valve is better :D

Yes, this valve already had a hole from the solinoid, so just make it bigger.

Unless he is modding the valve with a 1" valve I don't see how he could drill a hole in the solenoid port.

So you would say that this type of valve is better than the other "standard valves"? Either way, it's good to know alternatives.
