mornin all, think i got a boost problem, i got a sti running 22 psi pushing around 350 bhp. when i go full thotle in 5th or 6th the boost guage goes up to full boost but wont stay there, drops back and then up again. i have noticed that some take the boost solonoid off and clean it and this seems to cure the problem. what i would like to know is where is this boost solonoid so i can do the same.

Re: boost


The boost solonoid is situated drivers side towards the back bolted to the shock turret.
