Tweek's Turbos said:
Number 1 would be a downpipe, then a manual boost controller. Since you have a manual, find an ecu out of a 99 9-3 hot, 8th letter of the vin "P". Thats a good junkard score of 15 extra HP or so. Its a good idea to include a viggen IC too.
The DP seems to be the best MOD ~ Cost benifit there is. With all the suppliers, where should we buy one from? I see GS has a combo package avail.

So just by adding the ECU out of the HOT model 9-3 I can gain about 15 HP? Nice......

I have wanted to do the turbo and IC from that same model, but I never knew about the ECU trick... Thanks!
you may not get quite 15hp out of it, the difference between the T7 HOTs and regulars is about that, but my HOT also has the TD04 turbo, so some of the power will come from that. I've been told that the T5 HOTs didn't come with the TD04, but either way if you don't have one you might not get quite 15hp, then again you very well could. It all depends really.

I stand very strongly behind the GS parts, but I've heard that Jak Stoll makes good stuff too. Do you know what tune you want (Nordic, Maptun, ect.) ?

It should buzz at idle - this is a good first test. No Buzz and it's not functioning. Even if it's open all the time the boost still builds quickly. If it's faulty you are likely to only get either base boost or runaway boost with fuel cut. You need to test your base boost setting as I said before - anything else is speculation or stabs in the dark at solving this thing.

The BPC can fail in either position causing lowe boost conditions or Too high of boost conditions depending on which way it got stuck. If it is too low, test it by pulling the hose running to the WGA and take a run(carefully) If you hit fuel cut, you know it is stuck open.

I have the Nordic Stage II. Now I am moving to do the DP next. I have purchased from GS before and was pleased; but I have heard good things about Jak, his prices are a little higher....
