Boost solenoid mounting location

Post by Praylewd powr »

As per my other post, I wanted a followup to this question:

I originally had my solenoid mounted behind the pass headlight but moved it closer to the wastegate to shorten the vacuum lines to lower boost creep. It seemed to help a bit, but was wondering if mounting the solenoid by the distributor was a poor location heat-wise? Everywhere under the hood is hot so I doubt it would pose an issue, but wanted feedback from Hondata so I don't have to replace the solenoid in the future.

The firewall is usually a good location for the solenoid.
