i think you can buy them here: http://www.boostvalve.com/pricelist.html

It will not harm leaving the solenoid electrically plugged in, or not. If you do remove it electrically, you will see a trouble code whenever you run the EEC tests. However, that is not a problem or issue. It will just be one code you'll have to ignore whenever you run the EEC tests. The code will not trigger a check engine light.

If you are anal like me, and like to see the EEC self tests all pass with a code 11, you can wire a 100 ohm 1 Watt resistor across the BCS electrical connector (harness side, of course) to fool the EEC into thinking the BCS is still there.
