A bit confusing but maybe he started out way low, like 320's to start...

As far as the custom wiring for engine speed, the valves take about 5 seconds to fully open or close, at lease mine do. So having them pop open when you floor the car wont work. The issue with the M button concept is also that its not just open or closed, so you would have to have a timer run for about 5 seconds when you press the button. But they close/open faster and slower sometimes, so it could cause burnout on the valve.

True, but I've found they don't need to fully open to get a good effect. Maybe partially opening them would be sufficient.

Yeah the wiring will be more complex than directly to the M button.

I'd expect to the valves to have "limit switches" built in to prevent burning out the motors if you hold down the button, but maybe not.

Nope they don't. If you turn te car to accessory mode, but not engine on, and hold the switch you'll hear the valve open/close but then you can hear the feedback once it's 100% and the motor doesn't stop. Just keeps trying.
