 The ECU expects the solenoid to provide around 28-33 Ohms resistance.  If you use a solenoid with too little resistance (or draws too much current under any condition), you run the risk of [[driver01|blowing the ECU's internal driver]]. The ECU expects the solenoid to provide around 28-33 Ohms resistance.  If you use a solenoid with too little resistance (or draws too much current under any condition), you run the risk of [[driver01|blowing the ECU's internal driver]].

 The factory boost control solenoid (BCS) does actually work, but it's only a 2-port solenoid. ​ Which means you'll need to wire it up with a restrictor (we've found that a 0.025" restrictor works well) similar to the stock configuration and you'll need to remove the internal restrictor found in the stock BCS itself. The factory boost control solenoid (BCS) does actually work, but it's only a 2-port solenoid. ​ Which means you'll need to wire it up with a restrictor (we've found that a 0.025" restrictor works well) similar to the stock configuration and you'll need to remove the internal restrictor found in the stock BCS itself.
  
-The one advantage here is that you can plug the solenoid directly into the factory harness without need for cutting and soldering wires into place. ​  ​You'​ll just spend some time locating an appropriate restrictor "​pill"​ from somewhere. ​ These are probably readily available, though. ​ Just search for [[http://​www.google.com/​search?​hl=en&​as_q=evo+boost+pill|"​EVO"​ boost pills]] or something similar.+The one advantage here is that you can plug the solenoid directly into the factory harness without need for cutting and soldering wires into place. ​  ​You'​ll just spend some time locating an appropriate restrictor "​pill"​ from somewhere. ​ These are probably readily available, though. ​ Just search for [[http://​www.google.com/​search?​hl=en&​as_q=evo+boost+pill|"​EVO"​ boost pills]] or something similar.  It has also been suggested that you can just use some 0.025" welding tips instead.
