BOV: yes, if the car is Trionic (post -93, I mean)

MBC: no, because the ECU would see the overboost and then cut off the fuel. You should swap the ECU with a FPT one.

Stock boost: have a look here http://www.saab9000.com/procedures/e...eboostadj.html

Hope I've ansewred all the questions. Specifying what car one has sometimes helps people answering!
