To bypass the solenoid I think the poster meant he has a line that runs
rite from the compressor outlet to the wastegate and thats it.  So all
the pressure that goes into the line makes it to the wastegate.
The way the solenoid works its a electronic bleed off. Jus like alot of us
use some sort of needle valve of various glamour, the solenoid does the
exact same thing.  Only difference is sometimes it bleeds off, sometimes
it doesn't, and the amount it bleeds off is fixed.
