anybody got a pic of where its located? i have either a leaky uppipe or a faulty boost selenoid as i only get 0.5 peak boost. im thinking its more of a faulty boost selenoid as i do not smell any exhaust gas in the engine cabin when i rev it. and i doubt its a bad turbo as i dont blow any smoke. i do hear some strange boost noise from 3k-5k rpms

I don't have a pic, but it's located in front of the pass. side wheel well, underneath the black plastic cover with the 2 plastic bolts holding it down.

If you follow the boost signal hose that comes off of your turbo over to under that cover (you can take it off easily), you'll see where the hose goes into. It's a solenoid mounted on the inner pass. side fender.
