    Wastegate solenoid

    Where can I find a new wastegate solenoid?
    My machine still has the old style on front of the turbo
    I think it quit working because I'm not getting full boost
    Engine runs great up to 5900 rpm and doesn't rev any higher, boost is at about half on the gauge

    Check first for boost leaks. Bad solenoid usually causes overboost.

    Boost Valves can fail in the unpowered or powered state. In the powered state (venting) you'll overboost. In the unpowered state (to WGA) you'll get ~6psi max.

    But I too agree with checking for boost leaks. I've had a hose pop off and the max RPM I could reach was 5900.

    WeberPower sells the kit with newer style boost valve and relocation bracket.
