    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. 

    Quick Specs

    • Decrease Spool Time - flows 10% more than the competition 
    • Plug and Play into OEM Harness - no splicing wires like other BCS solutions
    • Works Safely with Factory Subaru ECU - custom coil to match ECU voltage
    • Nickel Plated Fittings - not the easily breakable plastic fittings!
    • 15min Installation - extremely simple with our written and video guides

    Design

    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.

    Materials

    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

    GrimmSpeed was founded in 2006 to provide customers with innovative and highly engineered aftermarket products. On a more personal level, we are a group of car enthusiasts in the lovely city of Minneapolis, Minnesota who are absolutely passionate about what we do. Our bread and butter started out anything Subaru. However, after growing our team and engineering expertise, we started developing products for Mitsubishi, Ford, MazdaSpeed, and Hyundai markets. We are a true garage start-up (single stall townhouse garage in Maplewood, MN) and we've been lucky enough over the years to be able to turn it into exactly the business we had dreamed of....actually, much more. We have a wide breadth of product offerings including: intercoolers, exhausts, intakes, gaskets, engine pulleys, phenolic spacers, boost controllers, and many more.

    Most of our decisions at GrimmSpeed are based on 3 basic principles:

     

    aboutus-2.jpg

    1. Innovation

    Our team knows that if they propose a project there has to be at least one new innovative feature. It may be a completely new idea or an innovation to a current product on the market. We truly love creating products that really work and make an impact on the enthusiast community.

    2. Keeping Jobs in Minnesota

    Lets face it, manufacturing in the US has been lost for a long time. It's sad because manufacturing is what this great country was founded on. Our goal is to do our part in bringing it back to the US. Lets show the rest of the world that we do still 'have it'. Almost all of our partners are right here in Minnesota, most of which are within an hour drive of us.  Its not always about the $$ and we are here to prove that.

    3. Customer Service You Deserve

    What flies for customer service these days just continues to astonish us. We don't have to tell you guys, I'm sure you are all well aware of some of the terrible customer service that goes on these days, especially in our industry. Our goals are to be honest with you, if something is going to be delayed, we aren't going to give you some made up date when it will be ready....we will tell you exactly the most current info we have. If you need help installing our products we will be there on the phone or email ready to help until you have figured out the issue. Last but not least, we will keep our word. If we say we are going to call you back, we actually will.
