Done with the ABV solenoids

I will be replacing the stock ABV solenoids with these and relocating them to a cooler temp spot in the engine bay so they won't get cooked by the rear exhaust manifold. Will update with how well it works.

I’m very interested to hear your results! I suspect mine is neginning to get flaky again. Just relocating would be an improvement but this looks like a much better built solenoid too!!!

Ok for the update it was success. Both vaccue and boost solenoids have been replaced. No check engine light and everything works as it should. I used two different brands but were both 12v 3 port solenoids. Here are the brands. Greddy boost control valve serial# 6419 this one plugs right into the stock plug on the harness. The other one is a ingersoll rand ARO 1/8" 12 V-DC item # 6JJ52 model # P251SS-012-D from grainger for 59$ with no plug so you have to make one. The greddy one is 80$ and has a plug on it already. To make a plug I cut the Male part off the factory solenoid bought some male pins from the auto parts store and put them into the boost ABV solenoid plug on the harness then used some hot glue to keep everything the pins separate and to hold the pins into the plug. Then soldered the wires to the pins.
