Someone wanna let me borrow their solenoids in orlando?

In my never ending attempt to fix the problem with the procede, I need to borrow someones surely good solenoids to eliminate them.

I takes 5-10 minutes to take them out, and I would only need them for a very short time, 1 or two pulls. One catch though, your car has to be absolutly cold since one of the bolts is right next to the coolant reservoir and it's a tight fit. I tried there's no way to get them off while its hot, unless you have no feeling in your hand.


If you don't know what these are, they are basically pressure regulators, the allow X amount of vacuum through which in turn closes the wastegates to build boost.


Oh yea, and I know it looks like it would be impossible to get them off, but it is, it just takes a small socket wrench and a universal joint.
