Well theres a Dynotune kit that is up to $400 if you want a lot of super cool lol-battery Im guessing is to get it to 12 or 24V to run the solenoid valve.

Bottle, bottle adapter, piping, purge valves/nozzles, wiring for solenoid, solenoid and power supply.
As kits go they are pretty simple.

Dynotune kit for $240 with twin outlets....

Hey vode! The kit is a full co2 purge kit from dynotunes, runs for $185 after shipping. The total rig comes with a 20 oz bottle (which fits prefect), the special flow valve, an adapter to fill the co2 (which can't be done at academy or Dicks sporting goods, only paintball stores), the solenoid, fuses/box,  wiring, hoses,  switch (though I replaced with a smaller one) and instructions.  I wired a battery box which houses 8 rechargeable AA batteries (12 volts). I believe that's all if I remember. The jetpack is An RS Masters arena pack, solid resin and fiberglass.  I believe it weighs in at around 35lbs? I've worn it 10 hours total in one day. The last hour was killing me lol gotta rework the harness. The only problem I had was trying to fill the bottle. There customer service was phenomenal. I called them once and they called me 4 times until it was filled lol.

Once I figure out how to send it to my flame thrower without blowing out the bottom thrusters I'll let you know lol. Otherwise it will blow out both at once. I was thinking a ball valve but I'm not sure where to place it without building up to much pressure and blowing the lines. Don't want to blow a hole in a $400 jetpack lol

The kit comes with a single T valve. 2 solenoids would require 2 seperate power sources though right? You would needa way to turn one off and the other on and vice versa. Also you can purge all At once for a good show but run out of co2 fast. I did a non stop purge for a test run, I think it was 15 seconds straight before the cloud disappeared and was just gas after for another 15 seconds. I usually do short purges, 2 seconds or so. The colder the bottle the bigger the cloud.
