Yes, thanks. I think I now get how the solenoid senses and controls/offloads intake through the */C. Basically, if you do the BCS test and ya aren't in a full boost state, you're running N/A and the BCS is sending no news otherwise, to the PCM.
Tonight I just pulled it and checked with a multimeter for resistance and got zip, zero, nada. i don't remember picking it up, but I found one in my parts cabinets. the car'* back to full throat again.
I sheared an endlink a month ago, and somehow nuked the idler pulley inside the engine mount, on the */C belt circuit. I got distracted thinking I might have a bent the */C pulley or snout. this showing up at the same time, was just a coincidence.
All seriousness aside...
Boosty? the word going round Phila in the Bonnevillism circles, is that he went too fast one day and scared himself. So he retired. He spends most of his days now sitting in his driveway in an old man'* car with the engine off, sipping tea and making loud "Vrooom Vrooom" noises to try to recapture the good ol' days.
Last club meeting, we had a minute of silence for the passing of the Legend in the History of Bonnevilles. I have to admit there was a tear or two. Hey, some of the best live fast, and retire early.
Somebody suggested we take up a collection and buy him a walker with an M90 V5 mounted on it. One of the young kids suggested we buy some testosterone that they advertise on TV. We were thinking maybe it would help him grow back some nads, and he'd get back into the Bonneville faith.
If anybody asks for me, I'll be in a really deep duck and cover for a while.
