    Boost Solenoid '04 WRX?

    Hopefully someone can tell me if the attached photos are the boost solenoid on my '04 WRX... It doesn't quite look like the ones I've seen online, as it has only two vacuum lines. One going to the intake boot and the other to a tee connector near the a valve off the turbo. any help appreciated!

    Thanks

    I don't see ANY solenoid... that's a bit unnerving.

    Wut? It's right there in the last two pictures. I can't tell if any vacuum lines are connected to it though.

    HAHAHAHA! I see it now! It looked like empty space and the plug for the solenoid was just dangling.

    It sits somewhat horizontal, has the blue electrical connector and two vacuum lines as I described in the original post. I do agree it does look very different than what I've seen when doing a google search.

    No, I don't think it looks too much different, I just didn't see it. The OEM piece is manufactured by Denso IIRC. Do you see any markings that indicate the manufacturer?

    The good news is that there are two vac lines, which indicate the solenoid is a bleed-type piece. Nearly all aftermarket solenoids are interrupt-type and would have 3 vac hoses off the solenoid.

    I'll pull it today and take a few pics and let you know.

    Thanks.
