Default Factory Boost Solenoid (Going Single Turbo) - 05-26-2019, 08:09 AM

I have read both sides that say leave one plugged in and another saying just plug in the MAC solenoid and it will be fine.

Running a JB4, do I leave one factory boost solenoid connected and not plumbed beside the connected MAC solenoid or have MAC connected and the other connector empty?

I have mac on one and empty on the other. No issues with this since going single. I paid it forward and gave both my barley used solenoids to a buddy that had his factory ones failing
Cant go wrong with mac and hard lines

once u get the single up and running you will have alot of other ST related things on your mind besides the empty connector. I notice mine once in a while andjust serves as a memory of the twins and and low end torque. But then the lag and scream of the single will make you forget all about it.

Lol I can feel those things coming to mind now. Getting close to first start and being nervous as always about it.

Take your time , get a good game plan and have a everything ready. I did mine from start to finish in two days. Only mistakes i made was i forgot the fire ring on wastegate and was a bit of a pain to get on afterwards. Now months later i cant be happier
