Default Typical stock boost setting for 92 T16S

I finally invested in a calibrated boost gauge (and new vac piping) A lot more involved than I imagined...These old SAAB's are put together too well!

So... What is the typical stock boost settings for a 92 T16S

Base boost and Max boost ?



cheers.... saves me trawling the forum. (I did provide a pic though! )

You could have done with buying the other 'TIM' gauge which is calibrated from -1 to +1.5 Bar. It will show more swing, and the one you've got is typically for cars boosting over 1.4 Bar. But hey it works, just wont move much :wink:

Peak boost on a T16S with standard (black) APC wih factory settings still intact on the pots and running 95RON should be 0.75Bar. If not see if optimax makes a difference. Most cars will run something like 0.65-0.8 depending on how well the system is working and the condition of engine componenets such as air filter, fuel filter, plugs, leads etc!

Just got it because it was cheap :P and I need to do some basic actuator setting up.

More detail would have been nicer up to 1.5 bar but hey ho

Looks like im boosting up to 1 bar with a modded apc with conservative pot settings.
What should base boost be? As I have a 9K Fmic and a 3" exhaust system on order base boost will probably need redoing. I was going to calibrate the wastegate to just above stock.

As Ross stated Maximum boost pressure on your car is .75+-0.05. Basic boost is 0.35+-0.03.

Same guage as mine. My one boosts at a maximum to the end of the yellow, though mostly to the 1 bar limit. (though I have had the APC tweaked). Do not think Tim guages are the most sensitive and the needle on mine 'vibrates' at idle, but accurate enough I think.

Default IDEA

Brian :idea

If you fit a piece of capillary into the system (down by the Tpiece for example), this will hold flow better and settle out any fluctuation. Makes readings more positive and less eratic.

My gauge seems to oscillate very quickly rather than vibrate at idle. certainly not distracting. If anything the oscillation seems to indicate an improved sensitivity// that it is possibly picking up the slow spin of the compressor?
