    Good question. I remember now that Lenny, the owner of Motorsport Tech, contacted me before he started makign these. He asked if I was ok going to 20mm in order to clear the factory hub. I measured the thickness of the fronts this morning and they're 18mm. They're packaged for shipment so I...

  6. Adapting to Tune

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    UPDATE: The new BCV seems to have solved the problems, fingers crossed. I've driven about 100 miles with it and done some pretty aggressive pulls and everything's solid.

    I ordered a new BCV to see if that fixes this. Only $30 from eEuroParts and they were having a promotion and it should be a quick repair. If that doesn't work I'd love to follow through with your suggestion. Thank you! I'll let you know.

    Haven't checked that. I'll look into it when I replace the coolant tank in a few weeks HOPEFULLY in a heated garage.

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    All six coil packs were replaced about a year ago when two in the front bank were bad. Six new plugs were installed during the visit that this problem stemmed from. A separate shop tried to fix this problem, which included inspection of the coils and plugs and found both to be in good...
  10. Adapting to Tune

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I've fooled around with this issue some more and still haven't cured the problem. I re-plumbed to boost gage using high quality fittings and hose, and used a factory supplied T and elbow to ensure a good seal. This way i can quickly connect and disconnect the boost gage to rule out it's role...

    Thanks, that's helpful. Do you have a larger picture though? Seems like that's just the thumbnail.
  12. GS Alu Expansion Tank

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I posted in the workshop but didn't get any bites so I figured I'd try the V6 specific forum. They're probably just jealous over there ;) See below. Hey guys, So I just spoke with a rep at GenuineSaab who didn't quite feel like answering my questions, so I'll ask here. This is regarding the V6...
  13. GS Alu Expansion Tank

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, So I just spoke with a rep at GenuineSaab who didn't quite feel like answering my questions, so I'll ask here. This is regarding the V6 Coolant Expansion Tank. First off, does anyone know if the Maptun strut tower brace is compatible with these tanks? Those of you who have ordered...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Of the vac line from the brake booster? No. I wanted to see if causing a definite leak would alter the fluctuation problem but it made no difference so I fed it back to the gauge.
  15. Adapting to Tune

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi guys, Haven't been on here in a while because the cars has been running great until now. I've had a BSR Stg 1 tune for a little over a year, and I brought it into the shop for new plugs. When I left I opened her up on the highway and noticed my boost pressure was fluctuating, causing the...
