Welcome to the Forum!!

Getting to the point; No, you cannot mechanically adjust the max boost pressure. Period.

The search feature will help you find 100's of posts dealing with how the T8 engine management system keeps all the stock parameters tightly in it's grasp, and cries if you won't let it (throws CEL's and goes into Limp mode).

Along with that, there are no "cheats" without buying a pricy personal programmer (BSR, nordic...). CAI's and exhausts even result in no power increase, but they do provide more noise and quicker spool up resulting in a little fun factor.

How about some pics? Also what options did it come with (suspension, transmission, wheels, packages...)?

ok do you know the whp of that re-map??
According to a couple of dyno runs that other members have done, there's about a 15% power loss through the drivetrain. That means 2.0t Stage 1 would be delivering about 174hp to the wheels.

This site seems to indicate power/torque losses of 7.5% and 7% respectively for a stock 2.0t, however this is based on a comparison between SAAB's stated numbers for the stock engine and the dyno readouts. The menu with other SAABs: http://www.rri.se/index.php?DN=29&List=S-T

Here's a member's dyno runs on his Stage 1 2.0T. There are a couple of other members with dyno readouts - a search in the Performance Forum should uncover them.
