    help me plz

    my friend put in a boost control solenoid in his car and took it out but lost the wire to reconect it. so he cut it put them back together but he is only getting spring pressure and a code that say high wastegate. when he put the boost control solenoid in it still dont hit boost just the spring pressure. what can be wrong with it? a blown fuse fired the boost control system?

    Possibly.

    You need to retune for the 3ports.... Or for ANY BCS for that matter. Everything is changed.

    well if the restrictor pill is missing, then you are going to be boosting wastegate pressure (7psi)

    you need the restrictor pill, unless you are using a boost controller

    really? well i have the evo III 16g as well, but i had no issues with the installation.

    I actually had it put in at a shop though, and have a boost controller, so i don't have the restrictor pill.
