    Help with a CEL

    After fixing a boost leak I took my car for a drive and got on it to see how it was running. While doing so My boost gauge shot up to 25psi where I then let off. The CEL came on and I checked it and its the wastegate solenoid. Some help on what needs to be fixed would be great. .
    My Main mod is Cobb AP stage 2

    Any help would be great

    check the connection at the EBCS?

    Vac. lines good/connected/proper routing?

    verify voltage/grounding on the solenoid connector.

    sounds like it's stuck, maybe. you can 'test' the solenoid operation with 12v/grnd on the solenoid terminals, listen for it clicking
