    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys and gals, I thought our cars with stock airbox is not supposed to have Turbo Whoose noise? On my '03, when it had the Garrett Turbo, When I pull hard and let go I can hear a faint but definitive dump noise. Now that I have swapped the GT2052 to a TD04 (Haven't remapped the ECU yet)...

  4. Bypass Valve question

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hey guys, I just got my zzperformance bypass valve to replace my old, stock bosch valve. It came with three different springs; a stiff, medium, and soft one. My question is, if I'm running 10-12 lbs of boost at full throttle, which spring should I be using? I put in the softest since that seemed...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I know the questions about bov are always being brought up but I was wondering if I bought a block off plate to put on the turbo could I put a bov on my car and still have the little tube coming from the new bov to the air intake?

  7. Bov??

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hey guys, I wanted to ping on the idea of an atmospheric BOV on a 2001 9-3. I hear that it's a big no no, but why? Also, from what I understand is there's no way to change the code in the T7 ECU to allow for a BOV. Is this confirmed? So I wanted to check a couple things and see what you think...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Ok so I am aware that my 2004 Saab 9-3 has a re-circulatory valve. I want a new one/ something to give a BOV sound. What should I do? and where can I get something. I would prefer a bolt on easy assembly product.
  10. Bailey Turbo Bypass Valve

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I was looking at 900aero.com and it states to upgrade the Turbo Bypass Valve to the Bailey one. I assume he means Bailey Motorsport. Does anyone have the model number for the correct valve for a C900 Turbo 16v? Also, where is the best place to buy one?

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I need direct answers on a few things... first of all is it possible to fit a front mount intercooler on a 2001 9-5 v6? Secondly I have purchased a recirculating adjustable blow off valve which is the correct blow off valve (according to kermit). Shouldn't it just be a direct replacement? I...

  13. Front Mount Intercooler...

    9-5 Workshop
    I was wondering how big of a job this really will be and if i will notice a significant boost in performance. I should note its a V6. I have read that with a correct tune I can get 18 pounds of boost out of my car and maybe even 20. I don't necessarily want that much but I'd like to push 15-17...

    Hey everyone. My 99 9-3 has a "hoot" sound once the turbo dumps. I have read something about blow off valve or diverter valve. Are they the same thing? Is replacement easy? Also, I have had an issue twice with the check gearbox light coming on. We took it to a transmission guy and he...

  20. Makeshift BOV Question...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    So I'm sure everyone's heard about the makeshift BPV to BOV conversion, I'm just wondering if this is at all, reversible, because it seems like something that would be fun for a little while but may get old. I didn't find anyone asking this question so I posted here. Thanks
