    Boost Solenoid question?

    is the rear boost cotrol solenoid the same part and part number as the front one?

    its just that i know they brought out a new one to replace the older ones but not sure if that was just for the front one?

    i replaced my rear one with a spare new revised front one the other day and noticed the nipples were slightly different in design and size at one end

    Take the IC to TB pipe off (power pipe if you have one) and it is accessible.

    They are identical Craig, i never understood why they had 2 either tbh !
