These Pierberg valves are a tested and proven 3-port boost control solnoid, used widely in european cars. The model we sell is the newest and most recently updated version of this valve, offering cleaner and more reliable boost than even the earlier models with the square plug.
The solenoids are supplied with a patch loom, so they're a plug and play direct replacement for the factory electronic boost control solenoid (EBCS) for the 1.6 T-GDi and others
Why do you need a EBCS upgrade?
- Better, cleaner and more responsive boost
- An increase in horsepower in the upper RPM band
- Not as susceptible to overheating as stock or MAC valves
The soul “difficulty” is the mount is different however it’s easily rectified with some cable ties. It’s a nifty little mod definitely takes out a large chunk of the boost hesitation, worth it in my opinion.
