i put the ppc in and the car is incredible but i noticed a few weird things, is it normal to hear the throttle body make noise like that, and the turbo guage goes up to the red line now, the car is very fast, alot of power in wheels, is this type of stress to the turbo effect it at all,and the throttle body also

I cannot imagine that a power upgrade based on chip tuning versus heavier duty, more powerful parts would produce an effect that would be any easier on the parts in the car.
That said, I remember a post string that spoke to the engineering of the 9-3 that suggested the stock parts had 'room to run' relative to its stock 175/210 HP configuration.

"Room to run" when you are driving like a maniac? Not when you are driving economically!! Am I correct? I would like for someone to verify that!

PPC does nothing to the engine that the engine can't handle easily.
