BINGO!  Isolate that E-RAVE and you should be good to go.

I agree the design is lacking.  I think I will purchase a 2nd isolation mount so I can use two on the E-RAVE like Blake is doing.  Its clear the solenoid was designed to hard mount with two screws and using a single iso just seems asking for a tab failure down the road.  And that’s been the problem the whole time with this EVO update.  Its poor engineering making up for prior poor engineering.  I admit the engine runs like a scalded dog now.  I’m thoroughly impressed with its performance.  But you’d think they’d have designed this stuff right the first time to deal with the vibrations.  And having the need to iso the solenoid should ultimately cause a redesign of the solenoid housing to better fit the new mounting method.
