I coudnt find it for the life of me.

I know how to hook up the rest of it, pressure sensor and ecu wires... but there are two things i need to find, that boost control valve and the actuator itself... i cant find either.

Nobody at all is willing to help me? I found the actuator (what i thought it was but i wanted some reassurement) but I still havent found the factory boost control solenoid.

SOMEONE out there must have some experience with this! A link to a site? Anything?

EDIT: here is a pic for your helping convenience ^_^

The is no factory boost solenoid.
There is a factory T-VSV (turbo vacuum switching valve).

If you are adding a boost controller, you will most likely have to cap the line going to it.

There is a vac hose that goes from the turbo to the wastegate actuattor (on the left nipple of teh actuator). The hose on the right nipple of the actuator goes under the engine to the T-VSV.
