I think you need to clarify this moreso the boost on the vehicle and what you seem to be talking about is the turbo not a solenoid

I have a 1998 WRX and it won't boost over 5psi?


You most likely have a problem with the wastegate staying open and bleeding off all the 'boost' because your vaccum lines are incorrectly installed. The vaccume line leading to the wastegate must have sufficiant pressure to keep the wastegate shut until the desired 'boost' level has been met.

1995 Subaru Impreza WRX engine problem


Alternator?
Voltage Regulator?

If the noise sounds like a weeeeeee that increases in pitch as the RPMs increase, and you haven't heard this sound before the 'problem', suspect the alternator...

1995 subaru impreza wrx sti overboost problem


I bought a 1995wrx turbo japanese import 260bhp standard,which can only run on v-power 99octane fuel,from scooby clinic in chesterfield (scooby race tune expert mechanics).I was the first person in england to test drive on road (it had not long arrived in the uk & had been put on rolling road a few times),whilst test driving,the turbo boosted normal & then started juddering slightly etc etc,i asked scooby lad "what was that" he wasnt sure(office boy!) & assured me that whatever it was theyre top mechanics would sort it out & do a full service,change the belts etc etc, ...so i bought it,luckily with a 30 day warranty included starting from collecting it.I picked it up about a week later,i got as far as 20mile away(nearly home) & it started juddering again,nothing too serious,so i thought we'll see how we go.next day same again,after 3days it were juddering more visciously,getting worse to the point where i nearly hit the windscreen,i thought its got to be a fuel blockage?.it backfired twice & not long after that packed up & would not start again,i foned scooby clinic & towed car back up to chesterfield.they kept saying "i must of put wrong fuel in",they ended up taking engine out cos head gaskets had blown,engine had died,6-7 wks later they told me to come & collect car with no charge,i was told to run it in for 500 miles steadily,& then take it back,they then changed oil,sparplugs & boosted turbo back up(re-connected it),the boss apologised to me & said if he knew it were like that he would never have sold it at all to anyone,he explained that the engine was carboned up(blocked) they did a nearly full engne re-build free of charge.the boss said if he knew it were blocked up they would of gave it a thrashing to clear the engine.

Turbo dont boost


Check the pipes from the turbo to the intercooler and the intercooler to the inlet manifold, one if the hoses maybe not sealing 100%. let me know.
