Stock solenoid is just fine, if your not running more than 1.4 bar.

If you want to run an aftermarket solenoid, look for an STi 3 port (not sure which JDM model had these though), or an Autronic or Motec solenoid. The Autronic and Motec solenoid are an Australian item, and are quite expensive (around 180 australian dollars), but they hold boost very nicely.

I've got a PossumLink 44S and I love it. Where I live in Perth, Western Australia, they are the ECU of choice for most WRX owners, the reason being there are 4 or 5 shops who can competently tune the Link within 20 miles of each other (its a small city, just over 1,000,000 people, but with a LOT of shops), and one of the tuners used to work for Possum Bourne Motorsport, IE the "Possum" part in the name PossumLink.

Once they are tuned well, they are capable of being a very smooth, nice running ECU. Just dont use a Walbro fuel pump with the later 44S ECUs...the early Links work well with the Walbros but the later ones dont. Bosch is the fuel pump of choice around here anyway, they are cheaper than the Walbros and flow more
