: G-TECH Runs

2nd February 2004, 09:38 PM
Some friends of mine who are into Saab's and I have gone in and purchased a G-TECH PRO Competition 3-axis accelerometer computer http://www.gtechpro.com.

I got this just in time to make some runs on my 2001 5spM Aero with Abbott tuned ECU.

I ran 18 1/4 mile runs and the top of the runs are around this range

0-60 = 6.01 - 6.51 sec
1/4 mile 14.5 - 14.9 sec

I have lots of first gear wheel spin....need to learn how to not do this!!

I have finally been able to make some runs on my new 2004 95 Aero. I was waiting for the break-in period.

I ran 14 1/4 mile runs and the top of the runs are around this range

0-60 = 6.52 - 6.73 sec
1/4 mile 15.1 - 15.4 sec

Not so much wheel spin on the 04, could be the Pirelli tires vs the Michelin??

More info to come. I plan on adding the Speed Parts Stage 3 PPC from Taliaferro within the next 4-6 weeks. I will make some runs then and post the results.

Very nice 8)

Yes, I traded in the 2001 for the 2004. I must say the 2004 is a better ride, I know that talk about improvements and you think well that is just marketing, well I am here to say it is not. The new car is much, quietier, responsive, tight, feels more firm but not rough!

Very happy, Lance from Houston

Is your 04 Aero an auto or manual?

My 2004 is a 5spM. I am waiting for the rain to clear here in Houston so I can go make some runs with the G-Tech.

I am also thinking about putting it on a Dyno March 27th.

I still do not have my cat-back installed or the delivery pipe. Both of these where back ordered. The Cat-Back is the long delivery item as in 04 Saab made changes, so the 2003 will not fit. I have installed the open air cleaner, 3" downpipe with sport cat and the PPC stage 3 software. The car run very strong and fast.......Can not stop grining!!

What brand is the 3" down pipe and sport cat. Also, dose the down pipe & sport cat have two "O2" sensors like the factory set up or is it just one? Sorry for so many questions, as your set up interests me very much because I have the exact same car and was thinking of doing all the upgrades you have done.

I got everything from http://www.genuinesaab.com/ It is SpeedParts with BSR PPC.

I think it has 2 and only one cat. I can look this weekend and let you know.
