    where are the boost solonoids?

    jus put a vxr turbo on my astra coupe and have also replaced the boost solonoid at the right rear of the engine bay is this the only one as i bought two and cant see where the other one is, other than on the turbo.

    Could here something wen my old turbo was on which i thought was either the standard recirc valve or chatter in the airbox, havent changed anything other than putting a full new vxr turbo kit on and complete silent when coming off throttle now.
    Not really bothered about the noise jus dont want to ruin the the turbo
