Maybe you'll get a better response in the Tuning Forum. Generally, if no one answers, then no one knows.

Try to be patient, some of us aren't on all day, or even every day!

Don't know :wink: Wish I did though. I might email them and find out. They have responded to a previous email about the dyno charts so I may have some luck. What questions apart from the ones above do you want asked?

BSR's response

1. How many pounds of boost does the car put out once the PPC is installed? for the 2.0t and the 2.0T.?

"BSR often get the question : How much Boost will i get with this uppgrade ?
The Boost is decided by the ECU and how much that is, itīs depending on etc. :

Air pressure
Air temprature
Humidity
Fuel quality
Load
Software

Modern cars with adapded control system have a various boost pressure.
Saab 9,5 for example, have a various between 0,8 - 1,4 bar !
So to say how much Boost you will get, is a hard question."


2. Does it change the fuel mapping like a normal performance chip would?
"BSR : Yes."

:D :-?

M4Gunner,

Here's some info on ECU tuning in the 300Z:
http://cherrypicker.tripod.com/turboupgradeforvg30dett/id10.html

Lots to read there, but the basic steps are removing limiters and expanding the AFR and timing tables.

Makes you wish we could drop-in programmable ECU's and swap fuel maps like mp3's, doesn't it?

These guys even have their own forum, eerily similar to Saabcentral:

Saba is right. AFAIK, the only way to tune a Saab ECU is with products like the BSR PPC.

The Japanese car market is broader, and they are fortunate to have products available which allow the owners to program their own ECU's.

The PPC's are registered to work with one VIN.
