If you are experiencing surging with your stock wastegate solenoid or you are planning on calibrating your ECU (tuning), our suggestion is to upgrade your stock wastegate solenoid to a Pierburg Solenoid that operates at a higher efficiency and speed (not applicable on 2019+ VT).

This Pierburg Solenoid is a much faster operating valve that will help eliminate fluttering and surging. If you are sporting an upgraded ECU Calibration or a big turbo, you can still retain factory operation without worry.




The Pierburg is a direct solenoid operated 3-way poppet valve. It features a short stroke solenoid, a balanced poppet and powerful return spring. These features translate into high shifting forces, fast consistent response times, and long life.

Pierburg Solenoid

When the stock valve is retained on the vehicle it can cause a surging effect in boost with an upgraded ECU or turbocharger. Changing to a Pierburg Solenoid will eliminate this effect and smooth your boost curve.

Very cool

Must have upgrade

I would say this is required for any 1.6T platform. Boost is reliable and solid after replacing the EBCS. My only comment is I wish it came with four zip ties instead of two but not a huge deal at all. Process is very straightforward.

Smooth Acceleration

I installed the wastegate solenoid upgrade on my 2018 Hyundai Elantra Sport DCT several weeks ago and it solved about 90% of the hesitation and surging issues on my car. Car feels a lot better, more enjoyable to drive day to day and no check engine lights. Should have purchased years ago, definitely worth it!
