Default Boost Control Solenoid

It seems a lot of people are lookin for info about this boost bypass trick.. why not put it in the techinfo with pics for series I and series II with pics to location of which plug to pull off from and which one to plug it to. This would help as I"m lookin to do this to mine, but my series II are having issues locatin which to which.. but thats another story. I'm suggesting this as a lot of the forced induction posts are in regards to this.. and I for one am guilty of it.

So this should be it right??

Now you've got the right idea. But do not plug the other hole, you can put a light foam filter of some sort on it, if you like.
