COBB 3-PORT ELECTRONIC BOOST CONTROL SOLENOID



 
Congratulations on your purchase of the COBB Tuning 3-Port Electronic Boost Control Solenoid! The following instructions will assist you through your installation process. Please read them first BEFORE beginning the install and familiarize yourself with the steps and tools needed. If you feel that you cannot properly perform this installation, we HIGHLY recommend you take the vehicle to a qualified and experienced automotive technician.

Warning! The installation of this 3-port solenoid requires proper tuning. The use of a COBB OTS map designed for a stock solenoid, with a 3-port solenoid installed, will result in drastic under or over boost behavior. Always match your tune with the exact components and installation method required for that tune. This includes how the hoses are routed to/from the EBCS, and which boost restrictor pills are present. If you have any questions or concerns and will be using an OTS map, please contact us. If you'll be using a custom tune, talk to your Protuner about which EBCS and hose routing method they desire for your application.

02-05 WRX and 04-05 STi (P/N 712750)


      1) Remove the cover on the passenger side of the engine bay where the factory boost control solenoid is located.

      2) Unplug the solenoid from the factory wiring harness.


      3) Remove the vacuum lines currently installed on the factory solenoid. 

      4) Using a 10mm deep socket, remove the two nuts securing the factory solenoid and remove the solenoid from the car.

      5) Install your new COBB EBCS onto the same studs that the factory solenoid used and tighten the 10mm nuts down hand tight.


      6) Follow the factory vacuum lines that were removed from the factory solenoid and remove them from where they terminate. One line will tee off into two lines and terminate on a WG nipple and a
          compressor housing nipple. The other will terminate into your turbo inlet hose. There is a plastic fitting about 4" from your turbo inlet hose where two hoses connect. Remove the hose that is between
          the boost solenoid and the plastic fitting.

      7) Using the supplied 4mm vacuum hose, press one end over the plastic turbo inlet fitting and route the hose back to the COBB solenoid. Cut the vacuum line to an appropriate length and press
           the end of the line onto PORT 1 on the COBB solenoid. 

      8) Using the supplied 4mm vacuum hose, press one end over the wastegate nipple and route the hose back to the COBB solenoid. Cut the vacuum line to an appropriate length and press the end
 
           of the line onto PORT 2 on the COBB solenoid.
  
      9) Using the supplied 4mm vacuum hose, press one end over the compressor housing nipple and route the hose back to the COBB solenoid. Cut the vacuum line to an appropriate length and
 
           press the end of the line onto PORT 3 on the COBB solenoid.
  
      10) Ensure all lines are neatly routed and tucked with no kinks in the line all while being fully seated onto the barbs of all the connections and secure them with the included 4" zip ties. Trim
 
             the ends of the ties with scissors.
  
      11) Go back and tighten the 10mm nuts that secure the COBB solenoid to the vehicle.
  
      12) Reinstall the lid that covers the solenoid housing.
  
      13) Enjoy the reduced response time and greater precision of your new COBB EBCS!
 
            
 
            Remember! You MUST properly tune for the installation of a 3-port EBCS. Using an off-the-shelf tune will result in overboosting.
