  1. 2001 OG 9-3 Aero Suspension Upgrade on the cheap?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Yes my car has wobbly suspensions and i would like to have a firmer ride and much less body roll in the corners. I know there are plenty of good suspension upgrades out there (konis, bilstein, kw, etc), but i don't want my suspensions to cost more than the car. My car has some brand new shocks...

  3. B205 / 235 Engine Upgrades On The Cheap? What's The Best Solution?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I'm looking to upgrade a few things on my OG 9-3 Aero. So far i have a stage 1 tune and a nice suspension upgrade - but i'm looking to do a few on the cheap (well, as cheap as possible - i have the tools, i can fabricate things). There's a few things i wanna do : 1) My engine is a B205R - in...
  4. Boost Leak Or Wastegate Issue

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm trying to diagnose some boost issues on my OG 9-3 AERO B205R. I'm not getting full boost at WOT - i'm getting about 0.65 - 0.7 bar of pressure (that's about 9-10 psi). Also mReq hits 1050 but mAir doesn't reach more than 750-800... Here's what i've done so far : 1) replaced all the small...

  6. 2000 OG 9-3 Aero Has Sport Suspension Or Not?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a 2000 OG 9-3 Aero (B205R T7 Engine) - that's a bit odd. The car has the Aero Spoiler but it sits pretty high above the ground (pretty much like the red one here : https://www.netcarshow.com/saab/2000-9-3_aero_coupe/) and the suspension is complete rubbish. I was under the impression...

  8. Low Boost When Engine Bay is Hot

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Forgot to say that in really high heat (100 F) if i disconnect the wastegate hose from the BPC - it boost fine every time (all the way into the red, hitting fuel cut). BPC is new, tested it with a multimeter, i get about 8 ohms, so it's in working parameters.
  9. OG 9-3 B205 Not Boosting When Hot

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So i'm trying to diagnose some boost issues and i'm having some problems. Bought the car in winter, changed BPC valve, cleaned MAF, got new spark plugs and DIC and the car was boosting fine. Hot weather came and i started having boost issues. Sometimes it would boost, sometimes it would not...
  10. OG 9-3 AERO B205R Boost Leak And mReq Limited

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So i have 2 issues. I recently installed opensid and a stage 1 (sort of) tune on my 9-3 B205R Aero. The car seems to be running fine, no misfire or knock (only 1-2 knoks after a hard pull, but i guess that's normal). I have the max airmass set to 1085 (it's not limited by anything up to...
  11. OG 9-3 Water In Passanger Footwell

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    thanks man, that really helped. i first fixed the first leak i found, the sunroof drain hose was split (actually it's a little plastic thingy that connects the sunroof drain to the actual hose) - water was pouring from the sunroof, to the A pillar and into the passenger footwell (less than an...
  12. OG 9-3 Water In Passanger Footwell

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    yea, i checked that but the door seal seems solid. also there's no water on water around the edges of the door. i believe the water is coming from the AC unit but i don't see any drain hoses coming out it, took out the glove box so i can see what's inside, i see the stepper motors but no hoses...
  13. OG 9-3 Water In Passanger Footwell

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    The inside of my car was smelling damp so i decided to lift the carpets and found some water. Then i pulled the foam insulation from under the carpets, and there were literally puddles of water, half of gallon and still wooshing out if if squish the insulation. Where can this be from? AC or...
  14. Low boost/ base boost on an Aero

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I had a similar issue, i was getting base boost no matter what. Turned out one of my PCV hoses was collapsed, nothing too bad, but it was sucking air. Replaced my PCV hoses and now boost is back...

  17. OG 9-3 ACC Blowing Hot Air Only

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    thanks for the reply, the blower itself is working properly, but i think it's missing a piece : there should be a thermistor right at the top of the temp sensor, and seems mine does not have it. and the small pcb (just one connection and 2 wires) is broken in 2 - don't know if it should be like...
  18. OG 9-3 ACC Blowing Hot Air Only

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I managed to fix my ACC display and i get an 02 code - internal temp sensor error. This thing is very expensive and hard to find - any way i can check what's wrong with it ?
  19. OG 9-3 ACC Blowing Hot Air Only

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop

  20. OG 9-3 ACC Blowing Hot Air Only

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So my acc was working a few months ago (tested it during spring to see if it need anything, worked fine). Right now, it only blows hot air. The compressor kicks in, so that's working, and if i turn the temp all the way down low - i can feel it blowing a bit cool (not cold at all, but not hot)...
