I'm ditchin' the wastegate, what do I do with the solenoid and the wire harness?? Can I just unplug it, tie off the pigtail, And ditch the solenoid? Will it set a de-fuel code??

Elkhunter, that is the wastegate actuator.
The red line is conncted to the Y pipe and feeds boost to the wastegate actuator.

The actuator moves the rod and opens the wastegate and relieves excess boost pressure into the turbine housing of the turbo and out the exhaust.

Google up 'wastegate' if you want to read more. I'll look around.
thanks for picking that apart for me and correcting me.
