ok, i know theres been alot of talk about the PPC, however, theres one thing that i havent seen yet(that i know of). how many pounds of boost does the car put out once the PPC is installed? and also, does it change the fule mapping like a normal performance chip would?

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!

patient?? how long is that gunna take? :wink: could you do me favor and move it for me? thanks 8)
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?

really none other than posted i guess. none that i can think of at least, but if you come up w/ a question.. throw it on the fire!
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. :
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."
Here's some info on ECU tuning in the 300Z:
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:

So there is no way to do up a 99 9-3 T5 engine? Just have to go and do over the hole ECU huh! :cry:

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.
