Default Another problem

I've been trying to figure out my boost problem (more on that later) so i was taking off the line from the Actuator to the Solenoid and of course the connector from the Actuator
inside the line snapped off.
Now how long can it be left like that until i can get a new one ?

Did it fix your boost problem? You can run without the BCS just fine, as long as you remember to let off a little during WOT runs near redline.

I had snapped mine like that too, I superglued it temporarily and got a used BCA from someone on clubgp.com for $20.

WHY ARE YOU SCREAMING FOR NO REASON?????????

GMPD wants about $140.. I priced one about a month ago. BCS is cheap..BCA is expensive.
