  2. 2.0T clutch replacement

    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...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I am looking to buy a 2003 9-3 2.0t linear. Its an automatic. Before I decide I would like to know what kind of potential this car has. What parts do I need to get started. I know stuff like an intake, exhaust, and suspension. I was looking at the brew city tuners. What parts do I need to go...

  5. BCB Stage 2 ECU Tune Review - 2003 ARC 2.0T - Brew City Boost

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I wanted to post a review about my experience with Brew City Boost and the Stage 2 tune that I got for my 2003 9-3 Arc (2.0T B207R). My car is stock except for Brembo brakes and a K&N Drop in. I emailed BCB to talk to them about the turn around time and some options and was met with a highly...

  7. Occasional Rough Idle (500rpm) and Occasional (1200rpm)

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So here and there with my Stage 2 Ng900, my car's idle will drop from 1000 down to 6-700 and the vibrations will start. But even rarer it will idle slightly higher than normal, at about 1200. Is this bad? What could be causing this?
  8. Improve Drag Times?? UPDATE

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    So I went drag racing today, my best time was 15.00 @ 95mph, now this is not right for a stage 2 '97 900se turbo. Stock its supposed to make it too 15.2 and with such a drastic power increase I doubt that I would only get .2 better. BUT my problem is 1st gear, 2 things about it: I can only rev...
  9. Mixed Messages: STAGE 2 AM I READY?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    So, I'm seriously considering a stage 2 tune for my ng900 se turbo using "T5suite," but would I be ready if I have a 2.5" cat-back exhaust with magnaflow rear muffler (no central muff) and a performance k&n air filter? Also does stage 2 compromise reliability in any way and I reckon 91/2 octane...
