Default What my BCS lines are hooked up backwards?



What if my BCS is hooked up backwards?

The hose that should be hooked up to the acuator is hooked up to the intake instead and vise versa.

I switched the hoses out. Is the correct way to hook up the BCS on my 02 WRX. Anyone done this. This is what the pic above looks like.

Subaru changed the direction of the solenoid at some point.

I have seen some both ways from the factory.

If the car runs fine and you hit proper boost leave it alone.

i tried it on a GM solenoid. It changed the boost curve from high boost then taper down to low boost then spike (and since it tries to pull the spike keeps going up )

I don't have a boost gauge. I just have mine hooked up like you see in the example on the first post. Now mine is actually backwards on the second post. It is hard to tell but it actually is backwards.
