talk to john z williams. jzwtuning.com he is a little more expensive. but he is by far the best, and has slips and success stories to prove it.

Yes I have. He's a good guy no need to fret my friend. I have a stage 2 tune from him. Probably the best $100 I've ever spent. Well worth it IMO

Flog the heck out of it! Really, you should run adaptation runs to adapt the boost. Floor it in 3rd or higher using the parameters below. Hold it floored through the RPM ranges listed.

Method (from Trionic Boost Pressure Adaptation.PDF on http://genuinesaab.com/psi/index.htm)

There are two methods depending on gearbox type:

Manual Gearbox
The adaptation range is from 2000 rpm up to 3500 rpm. The minimum time needed in this range is 3 seconds. Select the highest gear possible. It is easiest to perform this on a long hill. Repeat this until maximum boost pressure is attained. Maximum boost will vary with regards to fuel quality, ECM variant and ambient temperature.

Automatic Gearbox
Accelerate uphill with the maximum throttle possible without the kick down function being used. The range is from 3000 up to 4500 rpm. Time spent in this rpm range should be more than three seconds. Repeat this procedure until maximum performance is attained. Maximum boost will vary with regards to fuel quality, ECM variant and ambient temperature.

In an automatic, floor it so that it won't "kick down" a gear (downshift) but enough gas to get full boost in 4th or 5th. Run like this (full throttle but no downshift) between 3000 and 4500 rpm and repeat several times. You may need to use 3rd gear instead if the road is short. The ECU will adjust itself to obtain the desired boost. I would do it in Sport mode but I don't think that matters. You can't do any ECU damage here and you can always reset your ECU by pulling the battery for 10 minutes.

5 - 10 times should be good. Your speed will be dictated by the RPM and gear used but you need to start at 2000 RPM and get to 4500 RPM in 3rd gear or higher while at full boost and with no downshift in an automatic. You don't need to do it on a hill - flat road is fine. The ECU is always adapting so any time you floor it in a top gear and run between this RPM range you are potentially adapting.

You need to do "adaption runs".

Rabbit will tell you what you need to do.
