    sure it does. you remote close the bottle and purge out the line. this saves wear on the nitrous solenoid. hence a safety item.....

    no, ive heard of this being done before - 2 n2o solenoids, just in case 1 sticks open on you, the other will still close. a friend of mine blew up his 05' gmc sierra that way. the n2o noid stuck open, blew the motor up, and when the truck was off, you could hear it spraying still.

    There is NO point in this unless you want a remote opener!!!!
