Question

It's not a trick question........Really, it's not.

I just need the location. I'd look it up if I had a parts microfiche but we all know that none are available.

Im pretty sure its on the turbo. Look at your turbo and there is a red line that goes to and I would think that is it.

Im not aware of any wastegate solenoid on your turbo. I thought the wastegate was controlled by the pressure you have it set at by adjusting the the arm in or out.

On the turbo is the wastegate actuator. Follow the red line to the solenoid mounted on the intake spider.

RPM, if the solenoid is bad, could that be causing a low boost condition as well????

Is it hard to change the solenoid out? Expensive?

Thanks
