Denso thingy, errr ok....Denso make half of the electric bits on the car!! LOL

Is it the roundish thingy on the drivers side wheel arch with pipes comming out of it?

If so, that'll be your boost solonoid, it clicks as it opens and closes to reduce boost pressure applied to the wastegate (the thing that controls boost pressure on your turbo), so that it can maintain a safe boost level that can be controlled by the engine management computer.

They can sometime get blocked up if the engine oil is overfilled, but you would have quite obvious problems if that was the case. The clicking is quite normal, some are louder than others, but at least you know it's working!
