Had the p0023 fault at the track, left me with next to no bottom end power. Found a broken pin on bank 2 exhaust vct solenoid . Seems to be ok after a bit of soldering and a clump of high temp silicone. I was wondering about getting a new harness M-12508-M50, but is says you need the newer vct solenoid. Does any one have the part number for that?

The newer solenoids in the 2013+ cars is probably what you are looking for.

Solenoid PN should be BR3Z6M280D for all 4 solenoids.

Ordering the harness as a Ford racing part will cost more than double what you would pay if you order it as a 2013 - 2014 replacement part. I updated my harness last year using a 2013 VIN 1ZVBP8CUXD5263104 for $104.98 plus the cost of the VCTs. The harness part number is DU5Z-12A581-ZA.

These are the 2013 and newer solenoids that go with the engine harness listed in my above post. Ordering through White Bear, you can replace the harness and all four solenoids for about $200.
