I was just wondering if a blowoff valve and manual boost controller can be used with the so called low pressure turbo.

oh and does anyone know the stock boost of the lpt?

BOV: yes, if the car is Trionic (post -93, I mean)

MBC: no, because the ECU would see the overboost and then cut off the fuel. You should swap the ECU with a FPT one.

Stock boost: have a look here http://www.saab9000.com/procedures/exhaust/baseboostadj.html

Hope I've ansewred all the questions. Specifying what car one has sometimes helps people answering! :D
