    Thanks for the offer. My 2016 has only a single control solenoid and I've bought one as swapped it without change. My WG actuators hold pressure throughout the system(mightyvac vacuum pump). Did you seal anything else up? My pressure control system and plumbing seems perfect.

    I have a WG solenoid that’s good if either of you want to try it.

    My WG solenoid and system should be same as yours except for the TurboSmart WG's.

    Too bad to hear that your's is still acting goofy. Everything that I've been able to gather is that the WG's hyper cycle when they are trying to achieve desired boost.

    I'm still open to putting another set of eyes on it, if you like.

    Now that it's warmed up (a bit) the noise is again at a minimum, but definitely not gone. I appreciate the offer, just living with it for this summer. Maybe take up the quest again in the fall when things cool and the noise increases. Enjoy the riding season.

    If it get's worse or you change your mind, just shoot me a pm. Enjoy the summer, it's finally warming up!

    Going down a new path here. After reading this thread, it seems like this may also be a possibility. I will drop the pan and torque all the bolts on the valve body.

    Is your truck a 2011 - 12. From my research for 2013 and up you cant buy a direct fit part for a WG swap.

    I have a 2014. From Ford, no you can't buy just the WG's. But you can buy replacements from TurboSmart, they bolt right in.

    For 2013-14, you would need the IWG-75 with a 5psi spring.

    How hard are they to replace? If you take off your wheel well liners they should be right there?

    I just get at them from the top-side. It's only loosening off the jam nut and the two nuts that mount the WG to the bracket.

    If you were pulling the liners for other reasons, it would for sure be easier from the side.
