Default Ppc/usa

This is my first post so be gentle! I'm getting my first Saab, a SportCombi 2.0 in two weeks. I've looked at the all the info I could find on the PPC. Has anyone had the pleasure of a warranty claim after using it in the USA? I will be returning there soon so I'm just wondering what their position is on using Hirch products purchased overseas.

I would wait untill you put at least 10k miles on the engine gently before you push it with a PPC.

Definatly won't do this right away. It is a pricy product but if Saab will "allow" it I wouldn't mind paying extra and keeping the warranty fully in tact.

Talking Oops, I mean Hirsch

I just realized that BSR make the PPC, not Hirsch. I guess that answers my question about the warranty. Anyone have an opinion on the Hirsch upgrade? Is it a reprogrammable deal or a one time ecu upgrade?

One time ecu upgrade, the Saab dealer re-flashes your ECU with the updated Hirsch program.

However, Hirsch products are not suported in the USA by Saab-USA, so not sure how that would affect you..??

Right. I had 2k on the car when I re-flashed the ecm. no problems. My dealer here on o'ahu is all for modding he has absolutely no problem with all my stuff and has given me advice how to get the most HP from this car.

Welcome to the Forum. UH-60. Are you the driver or the mech?
I am a Flight engineer in the military myself. later,.
