    Hi everyone, Things are going well with the Red Sled after replacing the starter from the now departed parts car. (Knock on the wood trimmed cluster panel.) One of the many bits I pulled from said parts machine was the turbo. Mostly because I know next to nothing about em, and partly because I...

    Hey, does anyone know where I could buy a forge wastegate that fits the td04 15t turbo? I see they sell one for 2.0T and 2.3T, yes with the big t. But it says its not suitible for aero cars. And as far as i know they come with td04. Here is a link to the wastegate I am referering to; Saab 95...

    Ight, been on this 2 month fuel injector nightmare and finally started driving around again after getting the ECU rebuilt, replacing the injectors, boost valves, etc., though I've noticed that the power is being limited to about half the turbo dial instead of just reaching the red mark. I think...

    Hi. I currently own an automatic 1996 Saab 9000 CDE 2.3 Turbo and Im having a bit of a boost problem. Under acceleration when the car is not fully warmed up boost alternates between 0.5 bar and 1.1 bar, but when the car is warmed up the boost does not rise over 0.5 bar. What is normal boost...

    Still working through my adopted AERO, and noticed the boost/APC gauge tops out in the middle. Is that normal? According to the factory gauge, would anyone happen to know where the needle should be under full boost? What is the factory psi? I am attempting to determine if I am getting full boost.

    I've wanted to add a couple gauge pods to my Saabs for a while, but it's no secret Saabs don't have a ton of aftermarket support, as compared to other brands/cars, and you can't really find much. So I decided to CAD model and render an initial version of an OEM-fit gauge pod I plan on printing...
  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello everyone, I have a 2009 Saab 9-3 2.8 with XWD. My car has been tuned to Stage 2 by Brian at Vtuner and I cannot figure out what my issue is for the life of me. The car experiences boost cuts. At WOT it will cut from 15lbs to 5lbs and I can feel the power loss. It happens most of the time...

    Recently I lost boost suddenly, once after being at high rpm and once while just cruising at low rpm. The first and second times i just replaced the front boost controller and the problem was solved. The first time with a used one and the second time with a brand new one from Sweden. The second...

    So this is my first saab (2006 9-3 2.0T) and recently i bought a “stage 2 aggressive ecu” off a 2004 9-3 Aero on ebay (#55569738) and had it programmed to my car at a local shop thst works on saabs. After it was programmed i still had a cel and code was p0300 for a random misfire my guess was...

    Hello! My name is John, I'm new here. First of all, the car; Saab 9-5 2.0t B205E 2001 225hp map I am experiencing an issue where there is a very loud high-pitched whining/chirping/screeching noise when boosting above 0.5 bar of boost pressure. It only occurs when driving, so, under load...

    Any one know the size of the inlet for the turbo? Looking to grab a kit off ebay so I can strap it around the opening.
  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So my 93 has no real power up till 3K rpm and then the big 'un kicks in and then it kicks hard. I'm guessing the small turbo is not working ... but why ? To start off, the small turbo is up high, big turbo down low ... right ? First off there are no fault codes logged. I can find no boost...

    Hey everyone! I am going to apologize in advance for the really long post.. I just want to give as much information as I possibly can! My car: 2008 9-5 2.3t 188K miles I have been having really bad issues with performance/boost. I used to be able to put the pedal on the floor and the car...
  14. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    hello Saab Central, been a while since my last post/question... i guess that is a good thing. anyway i am seeking opinions on why my Viggen just doesn't have the same level of turbo boost as it used to. i cant get the boost needle into the red. the turbo still works for the most part but i am...
  15. 9-5 Workshop
    Hey recently after driving on my car hard I have experienced a problem with the turbo. I drive a Saab 2005 9-5 Aero and the car used to be pretty fast, all I have done to it is an open air intake with a K&N High Flow Filter on it. But now the turbo makes an extremely loud screaming like noise...
  16. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I've been lurking and searching and pulling whats left of my hair out trying to make my idea work. Heres the scoop: I'm installing a boost gauge in the stock headlight switch location. That's the easy part. The hard part is, I want to be able to switch my headlights on and off. My plan so...

    Hi all, Bit of an on going problem with Mum's 9-5 regarding slow acceleration. Basically, it is an intermittent issue where the car will be very sluggish off the line, and only gets moving after roughly 3000 rpm. Once moving along, the slow acceleration is not as noticable, however it is still...

    I added a GS 3" DP sometime ago and have only now gotten around to checking the base boost after installing a calibrated boost gauge. following the procedure here http://www.saab9000.com/procedures/exhaust/baseboostadj.php I found that my base boost was only 2-3 psi under full throttle...
  19. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm having a problem with my 02 9-3 where it wont build boost properly when rolling on the throttle slowly. The turbo gauge will go a little bit into the yellow and just stay there no matter how long the throttles held. Then if I let off and quickly apply the throttle back to the same position...

    I just recently bought my first Saab. A 2002 9-5 linear wagon. Very nice car. I wanna increase boost in this car for a lil more "go fast".:cheesy: What would be the easiest and cost effective way to do this. The car is bone stock. Would it be as simple as swapping turbos? I've never had a...
