Default Rockauto %5 off.

I've got a coupon code if anyone is ordering from them. PM me. I could probably post it but don't want them to cancel it from abuse or something. Doubt many here will use it but Rockauto has great prices on stuff.

nice. but i wonder if many non paid users will be able to PM you. or if you have the space for them to.

gm boost solenoids are almost worth buying a ton of to re-sell. they probably have the harness too. then you can save the $20 GM Parts Direct charges for shipping.

Go figure, the solenoid is cheaper than the connector.

GM boost solenoid: AC Delco #214474 $15.53
GM pigtail : AC Delco #PT374 $15.64

FWIW, the solenoid is $13.20 from GMpartsdirect. Part # 1997152
I couldn't find the connector there.

As I understand, the connector can be harvested off of a GM windshield washer pump, out of pretty much anything GM in the junkyard. It looks like the same as the pigtail for my GM IAT sensor too, but I didn't confirm.

i havent gone in with my solenoid on hand, but im sure i saw the connector at Advanced for about $4.


It's very simliar to the GM IAT sensor, but no dice. (deeper, wider, sperated down the center)

EGR sensor too. I think it's a standard GM connector for anything under the hood that has a pos/ground connector.

For $15 I'd rather have someone ship it to my door than hunt around a junkyard.

You could probably just get the female round connector from a Ratshack crimp pack and use two of those.

Damn, I just ordered from them yesterday...

I was able to get my soldering iron inside and just soldered on two wire leads. Then I filled the housing w/ epoxy.

It's only 5 bucks so I'm not worried about it...

$99 for a bosal cat back exhaust for the miata, cheaper then I could have made it.
