If you don't have to pass emissions than i would just block of the egr valve and not worry about the solenoid.

If I'm not mistaken that looks VERY similar to a Boost Control Selonoid for a 1g?

If it is so, you could just leave it plugged into the wire harness and run a vacuum line from the outlet on your turbo to the nipple on the wastegate to run wastegate spring pressure. Or if you have an aftermarket boost gauge run a manual boost controller.

But leave it plugged in electronically or could throw a CEL on 2g's.

This is for the egr valve, not a boost control solenoid. IT has to have both nipples to work in this application.

You can buy an aftermarket from rockauto.com, part number VS161 for 56 bucks. You can also buy a new oem one from the dealership, or buy a used one from a salvage yard of classifieds. You can also just block the egr valve off and not worry about it.

It won't throw a cel if you leave the solenoid plugged in. All the ecu is looking for is resistance in the circuit for the solenoid. IT won't know it the egr valve is there or not. It will run just as it did before with the egr valve. IT will also keep your intake manifold and throttle body from getting carbon on them if you block it off. The egr valve allows exhaust gasses to flow into the intake manifold.

It is no better than a stock one, there is really nothing to upgrade with the solenoid, it is just a vacuum switch. It is just a oe equivalent replacement.

As for whether or not i have mine blocked off, i've blocked off the egr on every car dsm that i've ever owned (many of them) and the ones that i've built.
