Ok, I get the KPA table, that just what boost you want it to achieve vs RPM. What I dont get is the duty cycle table? What dose that change? What should I have it set at? Thanks for the help guys.

Set Closed Loop kPa to 0(it might default to 20), this uses the duty cycle targets to control boost, the kPa targets have been known to not work as well as that part of EBC is considered experimental. The higher the % in the row, the higher the boost. 100% keeps the valve closed completely which doesn't let the wastegate open.
I do not recommend using this Duty table, it could possibly damage your car. 100% duty will allow your turbo to spool itself to death as well as your motor. Start low and work up, slowly till you know what you're doing.

What solenoid are you guys using? I know most people recommend using the GM one off of the 4.3 turbos, but have a few leftover mazda solenoids. I was wondering if anyone has ever used them.

We're using the GM solenoid from a Typhoon.

No idea why you can't change yours Sam.

Cool thanks. I'm going to try crossing the GM number at work so I can rock the discount. So hopefully I can get a Borg-Warner number for anyone that wants it.

I bought a solenoid at my local dealer. It was $27 plus tax.

Its even grayed out in the PNP msq that I just downloaded.

So weird.

Probably a configurator setting, thats locking it out.
