I've a '99 9-3 SE. I've noticed the boost never gets more than 1/2 way (straight up and down). I'm wondering if this is factory default and if I can get more boost without tuning the ECU?
This answers the HOT or not question...all 1999/T5 HOTs are 5-speed. The other easy ID is the intercooler...the 1999 HOT has the cross-flow, all others have the counter-flow. This is 1999/T5 specific.Auto. My preference was foe a manual but they are hard to come by in Texss
In the US at least, all 1999 9-3s had the T25. The difference between the HOT and not-HOT was software and the intercooler.On the '99 base cars they had the garret t17 the high output SE had the T25, I would think the gauge would work the same whether you had either turbo,?
