Holy crap!

It felt like I was gonna take off. Literally. Until my clutch started slipping:cry:. I was really building it up a lot, and the drive still impressed me. Unfortunately I didn't get to do much until the clutch started slipping. Climbing RPMs + constant speed = no good:evil:. So now I need to figure out a good clutch setup...any suggestions please post them!

Is it normal for it to idle at like 1600 rpms? Idle was completely normal before I put the new ECU in...

And the TD04 swap was a nightmare. Everything that went wrong could pretty much.

Anyways, WOW! Can't wait for a new clutch now!

If youre running a viggen turbo on a stock 900 intercooler, I strongly suggest upgrading to atleast a viggen IC. Just sayin

Haven't put the old ECU back in yet. I noticed now that if I am idling for a little while, the rpms will start to drop to normal. Previous owner replaced the idle air control valve (don't know when exactly), any suggestions?

I have a big front mount IC already. And I was thinking Viggen clutch and pressure plate would be the way to go. Anything else I should replace while I've got the tranny out?

I bought the TD04 and stg3+ ECU off a guy who had the ECU tuned for the turbo. Also talked to John about it, and said that this particular tune would be a bit hard on the seals of the T25. So I figured this was a good place to be. Plus, I have stock injectors and don't want to risk running lean:eek::nono;

The coolant line was leaking at the end, where it attached to the fitting. I cut about an inch off, and inserted a new fitting, which was quite easy. The hard part was getting this new hose+fitting to fit on the nipple attached to the turbo. I barely got it on after many attempts, and finally soaking the hose in hot water to loosen it up lol. Now it seems to be dripping a very little bit of something, but I honestly don't care right now, I'm quite tired of the whole ordeal.

And now I need a clutch? Damn. No way I'm shelling out $1k for labor...but it looks to be a pain of a DIY job too.

Saabmarine it's funny you mention both the evap purge valve and IAC valve...both were replaced by the previous owner. Are they difficult to clean? I suppose that is a good start though

Now I've got a CEL :evil::evil::evil:

Checked fluids - fine. Checked for odd sounds/smells - fine. Just drove it 80 miles without any problems...could this be related to the funky idle?

Drop by an autozone or something of the sort and find out what the code is; could be something else going on here.
