  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey everyone, just looking for an opinion on whether I should drop some money on a stage 5 tune from maptun for my 93. She's completely bone stock, 140000km (87000 miles) on the clock, recently refurbished ecu with insulation between it and the engine. I'm looking to push it from 175hp to...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Was wondering what people think of maptun tuning kits now days. Have read many posts from years ago about people saying it is quite expensive and other companies are cheaper. From what I've looked at now maptun's stuff seems to be about the same price (no idea how much shipping costs are...
  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Does anyone have experience with a tune on OG 9-3 with b205r and 4 spd auto trans? MapTun claims around 250 hp and 258 ft lb torque, BSR claims 248 hp and 272 ft lb torque. I had a BSR stg 1 tune on my 07 9-3 aero and loved it, but I’m not set on any specific tuner right now. How well would the...

    Good evening guys, I just got my stage one Maptun tune and installed it, did two key cycles and got a check engine light for rod knock detection sensor I cleared it and drove because it sounded the exact same, drove it around a bit seemed a little more torquey getting off the line but...

    I have an opportunity to purchase a 2006 9-5 Aero Black Manual 160,000km great condition. Add ons included Hirsch suspension, Maptun Exhaust and Maptun Stage 3 software, and a genuine, OEM Saab rear trunk spoiler. What should I offer? I see such a range for this model/year.
  6. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Saw a previous thread on this that no one commented on. Has anyone installed this? The genuinesaab one looks more affordable but unsure if I want to deal with the modification necessary.

  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've just had my 9-3 Aero tuned up to the Maptun stage 2 (255bhp/370Nm) and noticed quite bad clutch slip during high torque phases. Maptun do not specifically recommend the uprated clutch for stage 2 that they sell which is rated up to 450Nm so I presume my clutch was on its way out anyway and...

    Hey guys, has anyone had any issues with the maptun coilivers in regards to the rear shock absorbers coming loose? Turbo x started clunking the other day and when i pulled off the rear wheels and inspected i noticed the driver side shock had loosened off. When i say loosened off i mean the gold...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey all, Just figured I'd give an update on the recently swapped Maptun coilovers. Big thanks to Kanundrum for the walk through. I've never done any type of springs before so it was great to have some guidance. As it turns out there were already Bilsteins on the TX when I bought it. I just...

  15. NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    This morning I installed a Maptun 3" downpipe and a Maptun 2.5" catback exhaust. It all went pretty well, took a couple of hours. The only problem I really had was getting the midesction of the catback out and in over the chassis, but only bcause I couldn't get the back end quite far enough...
  16. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I've been thinking about doing a Stage 1 Maptun on my 1998 Saab 2.3SE lpt Ecopower Automatic. It's got 155K on the clock with a FSH. Just want the buzz of the extra power but don't want to break the old girl (or my car). My local Saab mechanic says "don't do it, leave things as the are, you...

    Colleagues: Having returned from the SaabsUnited Octoberfest with a variety of goodies, freshly installed, I thought it a good time (coming to my 3rd Anniversary of Ownership, from new, and 40,000 km) to share what I've done recently and a synopsis of my experience with the car. Don't wish...
  18. 9000 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Over the last few weeks I've been intermittently struggling to install a MapTuns strut bar from Velocity Tuning on my 96 9000 CSE. I know that this is really supposed to be a 15 minute job - unfortunately, at least in my case, the stock strut tower bolts were too short to securely bolt because...
