Default New EBC solenoids are here

We've found a replacement for the GM boost control solenoid, thanks to a lot of help from this forum. It's now up on our website:



Yes, as the photo on the catalog page shows, we've already tested it out on the red Miata.

Matt, do you think this will help with the temp-dependent overboost issues a lot of us are having, or is that an issue that can only be solved with closed-loop control?

Matt, i know alot of people have been having issues with overboosting and different boost levels with various ambient temperatures. Will this solenoid do the same? Or is this replacing the "old" one because it wont be as much of an issue?

Thats a huge bitch.

How could temperature dependent overboost be remedied by a boost solenoid? Is it going to magically change the density of incoming air?

Keith G is working on a new version of the PID closed loop boost control right now. The problem this valve solves isn't the boost changing with temperature - it's that GM completely discontinued the Syclone boost solenoid we had been selling.

And that's a bad thing?

It should be a blessing in disguise.

Is this one quieter at least? That GM one is loud as hell.

I read another thread on this and it looked as if this new PID code only applied to the MS-II. Will there be a MS-I version as well?

I read that it's also being worked into MS-I as well. It sounds like MS-II will see it first, though.

For any of you geeks that want to see info on this BCS in 3 port vs 4 port configuration using both ports on an external WG, here you go:

NASIOC - View Single Post - Full DIY: GM solenoid install (56k warning)

Pretty sure the ECU pages in the thread are from the Hydra software.
