I should probably mention that this is with a tuning module. Can the solenoid handle it?

Yeah I've been running it for almost a month now and although I really like it, it's not quite as predictable as an actual ECU tune would be(I'm guessing).

It surpasses what the car can handle stock though, so I'm currently looking at upgrading both the BOV and Wastegate Solenoids.

I should be picking them up tomorrow, but not sure when I'll be able to install them.

Definitely recommend both solenoids. Smooths out the power delivery considerably.

How hard is it to do the solenoid replacements with:

No garage
No driveway
No jacks

lol

Do you think I could do this on the side of the street with just a ratchet set, and from the top down? No need to get underneath?

The bov you can do pretty easily with a 10mm wrench, some elbow grease and a zip tie for the new one all from the top. But wastegate solenoid you want a jack and definitely have to go from under. Definitely a bigger job than the bov.
