On my 92 it does. In the ECU pinout diagram output 2X of the ECU goes to the purge solenoid. In other words there is no MAP sensor.

The stock charcoal canister is pretty huge, so that's why mine is on the shelf now. But I am planning on building a smaller canister (maybe I'll use the NB overflow tank and fill it with charcoal) and then I'll use the solenoid with my standalone - I'll just set the solenoid to activate when the rpm are above idle and the engine's not in boost.

NBs have a map sensor.

If you no longer use the original ecu, I would think that the purge solenoid wire could be connected to the handbrake switch.

So on a NB is the concept of operation the same? Or because it uses the map sensor and the location mean that it's function is different? Would eliminating this cause a CEL?

Typically if a thread hasn't been posted in for over a month, nobody is going to care what a first-post NOOB thinks. This thread is no exception.
