The Original Direct-Fit BCS for turbo Subarus.
GrimmSpeed is proud to provide the most complete and easy to use 3-Port Electronic Boost Solenoid for available for all turbo Subarus. Unlike your OEM 2-port solenoid, the GrimmSpeed BCS will allow for extremely high resolution boost control, providing your tuner with the hardware he needs to safely tune your car with rock solid boost levels. Using our solenoid, you are able to spool your turbo quicker and maintain tight control of boost levels throughout your power curve. In addition, our solenoid features a balanced valve to withstand up to 120psi without a slowing response by even a single millisecond.
Revolutionizing the Subaru boost solenoid market, we have created model specific install brackets that allow you to install our Boost Control Solenoid with a factory fit and finish. To top it all off, our solenoid also uses a Subaru wiring harness connector so that you can simply unplug your OEM solenoid and plug ours in. No more cutting and crimping OEM wires together!
The solenoid itself is one of a kind. MAC manufactures pneumatic control products for the largest commercial operations in the world, where every minute of downtime can cost tens of thousands of dollars, so we worked closely with their engineers to design this unique valve, incorporating proprietary features, exclusive to GrimmSpeed, that make our solenoid the toughest on the market. Those features include special seals to protect it from moisture and high temp coils to keep response times at 6 milliseconds or less, even in extreme heat. We have worked with many of the top tuners in the country to ensure that our solenoid works safely with the factory Subaru ECU.
Our special solenoid features, combined with our factory-fit brackets, ensure that this complete boost control solution will withstand the harsh heat and vibration of your engine bay. The Subaru harness connectors that we use include weatherproof terminal seals, carefully crimped with DELPHI equipment by our expert assembly staff. Mounting brackets are laser cut and then black zinc plated to ensure corrosion resistance. Each bracket has threaded PEM nuts pressed in for a solid connection with no risk of stripping threads. Each low profile 1/8" NPT nickel plated fitting is installed in the proper orientation using a 120psi thread sealant for a clean, compact, robust installation.
Trust Your Tuner
You don't need to take our word for it, trust your tuner. When it comes to boost control systems, be sure to consult with your tuner to ensure that you're building a setup that they're confident tuning. The good news is that with well over 25,000 units in use on some of the fastest Subarus in the world, with the GrimmSpeed Boost Control Solenoid, you'll be in great company. As with any change to your boost control system, upgrading to a 3-port solenoid does require tuning.
"The GS 3-port BCS provides rapid boost response while maintaining the ability to make acute adjustments via turbo dynamics. While many other boost control solenoids react to adjustments too fast which can make them difficult to control with as much finesse as the stock bleed system. This solenoid can make micro-adjustments at the edge of target boost not only providing better spool, but overall more control." - AWD Tuning
"The GrimmSpeed™ BCS is a compact, well designed unit. Its design as a 3-port solenoid provides better boost control then the stock bleed-type style. Often, this enables a tuner to cut mapped wastegate duty cycles in half. This change in WGDC gives a tuner more granularity when tuning, and can yield much improved boost curves. In addition, the 3-port design often significantly improves spool." - Bullwinkle Tuning

Only took a couple of minutes to install and help my boost issues. Grimmspeed never disappoints

Easy to fit and works like a charm on my 03 Forester 2.0 XT.
Bolt-on and discrete.
Wish the included vacuum hose was a bit longer, and could have used a few hose clips because they are easy to lose.

Very satisfied. They sent me the LGT bracket even thou I selected 2011 WRX but it still worked, just not as clean looking as the WRX bracket. I'm fairly new to modding cars and was able to follow the instructions with no issues! Highly recommend!

Put the bcs on took about 30 plug n play, mounting brackets alittle different on the 05 wagon, had to mount it upside down , but definelty worth the money. spools faster, more boost, no more gitters in first gear... good upgrade

Quick and easy install, very precise boost control (with a professional tune), and excellent customer service. I would definitely recommend this and GrimmSpeed to anyone.

Not only am I impressed with the awesome power and throttle response gains, I must say the customer service exceeded my expectations. Love the BCS without a doubt

"my stock setup couldn't give me more than 12 psi no matter how aggressively i set the duty cycles. I replaced the bleed system with this one, and it is awesome. This item gives you so much more control over the turbo. Now i feel the need to dig out my Controls Engineering book to fine tune the Turbo Dynamics for even better response.
seriously, if you are thinking about getting one, just do it. it's worth it, and it takes about 30 minutes to install in the driveway with a leatherman and a 10 mm wrench."
