06 and up aero and non-aero have the same motor/power. The aero just have different a different trim and suspension

Agreed!

I have a Mazda for autocross and it definitely lacks the robust, quality feeling I get when driving my SAAB. SAAB's just have power and a certain confidence about them.

Enough of the art lesson, get an open filter and listen to your turbo howl!

Im sorry, you must be misinformed. you do have an intercooler. I don't believe there IS a production forced induction vehicle that does not have an intercooler. Also, the amount of boost does not alter the requirement for an intercooler. An intercooler has to do with boost air TEMPERATURE not pressure. Turbocharged drag racing cars run massive turbos with well over 40 psi boost with no intercooler.

The boost is controlled by your waste gate or capacity of the turbocharger. In the case of your saab, its a waste gate.

ok. Ive seen 18 psi being ok to your motor. but I would stay away without proper knowledge of your vehicle. upping the boost isn't just simply turning up the dial. there are multiple maps that will need to be altered.

Sorry to be a downer, but I made the mistakes of jumping into the tuning and modification pool headfirst, only to find out that T7 is a beast best left to professionals.
