Anyone have a solenoid for AEM tru boost? Mine never came with one when I got it with used kit. Ill spend the $97 new if really need to but loved to find it cheaper. Not a bad boost gauge for $13! It was missing everything so $13 for a wiring kit, $97 for solenoid, $138 for the external sensor but don't think ill ever see over 29psi. If anyone has one pm me please!

Lol that's all I did too, and then plug the 5 pin wire in gauge, runs to ground and power, just need a solenoid that wires up to power and ground and its a full controller! Question, can you water damage a turbo? Got stuck in a flash flood tonight and car won't go past 4500rpm and don't want to force it.

Ignore my question about water got it figured out with Tom! Also ordered a solenoid, are their any other gauges any1 is running for boost, I have AFR, boost and volt, I feel SVTF's OEM oil press, oil temp, and water temp gauges are good enogh. Anyone with a SVT disagree?

Hey guys ever since I installed my Tru Boost solenoid my vac is now -17 for idle and when reved up to 3000rpm the vac goes up to -21 then goes to 0.00 psi and then up. What can be causing this problem??

haha yea it was fine when it was just a boost gauge but ever since I hooked up solenoid I've been having problems and now its not running right. If you want it for just looks just get this: http://www.aemelectronics.com/boost-gauge-35-psi-767
That's just a gauge, If it comes to it what controllers are people using? Really hope its not the controller but it might be. I need a second person really so I can listen to when the car shuts off for vac leaks, hard to hear when its running but right when it shuts off you can still hear them just have to pin point it.
