Anyone ever tested it to see what kind of improvement there is after the BSR PPC upgrade (auto tranny)?

And how about stock 0-60 times (MY06 9-3 Aero)?

Cool, I've never seen that. That is Mudmover's video. The relative clocks closely follow the dyno charts I've seen and the tried and true *** dyno :D. They are very similar times to what I have recorded on mine.

0-60???? Damn, seems quicker than that. I'll have to conduct my own testing, unscientific of course, and report back.

I think the car in the video had the 2.0t instead of the 2.0T, so your aero should be faster, but I would like to know the results of the 2.0T!

Probably mid-high 6s stock, a half second quicker with BSR. 1/4 mile likely around 14.7-14.9 stock, again a half second or so quicker w/BSR. But these are just estimates, I don't have slips to show you, yet.

BTW, fastest I've seen in car magazine for stock auto is 6.4, for manual, 6.1. You might even run a bit quicker after the engine breaks in.

I have a 2.0t (175hp) and in manual shift mode I can get 0-60 on a 3 run average of 7.53 sec. Automatic 7.96 sec. If I remember right the guy who made the video said he wasn't trying that hard. No PPC yet. I'm waiting for the Nordic Stg2.

i've always wondered with the stick-o-matics...when they do the 0-60 and 1/4 mile runs....are those straight automatic runs or do they use the shift-o-matic option while doing them...or does the shift-o-matic actually make a difference?

From the reviews I've read if it's an auto then they test it in auto. I haven't read a review that test in manumatic mode. From my tests it does make a difference, especially in 3rd.

After years of experience driving sticks and drag racing I would guess that manually shifting the auto-stick should yield a better 0-60 time than merely leaving it in the auto mode. But since I have that tranny in mine I will do a test and report back.

You will not regret the purchase - my Saab tech was quite impressed and has seen lots of upgrades over almost 30 years of working on them. And it would be a nice compliment to your exhaust.

Of course you also have to differ between the 2.0t and the 2.0T (the former Aero here in Europe).
The 2.0T Aero BSR Step 1 should do 0-60 in about 6.8 seconds.

Hey michaLcoughliN!

I can't, as I don't even own a BSR'ed 2.0T Aero. :)

As I said, I figured the car "should" do the 0-60 sprint in about that time, but that is a guesstimate based on my experience. Over the last months, I collected alot of information on different Saab tuning stages by different companies. I got into contact with BSR (who were the only ones refusing to publish any info on acceleration), Hirsch an Nordic and also talked to a whole bunch of Saab drivers on the net. You can see some of the results on a temporary website I created: http://www.gradwanderer.at/_Projekte/Saab_Tuning/

The collected info and studying the different torque curves led to my guess considering the 247hp 2.0T Aero BSR Step 1's acceleration time I mentioned earlier.

My personal recommendation is Nordic Stage 2 (260hp / 400 Nm) anyway. As it's the case with Hirsch Step 2, you can get it with an improved intercooler, but for about half of it's price. They'll do another run with it in the comming weeks, and I guess they'll beat the time you can see on my website. I'll post the results as soon as I've been informed.

I hope that was of any help to you, just ask if there's any question left.
