Plug and Play (direct replacement) electronic boost control solenoid (EBCS) for the 1.6 T-GDi
Why do you need a EBCS upgrade?
1. The factory solenoid is plastic
2. Less leakage (no leakage with our valve)
3. An increase in horsepower in the upper RPM band
4. Will not cycle out under heavy use*
*High duty cycle rates of the factory solenoid can make the solenoid very hot and reduce its ability to control boost. In auto cross and road racing applications boost levels start to fall off and power reduction starts to occur. This can also happen with hard driving on the street.
