What do you guys think about this performance chip on amazon?
See the one star reviews.
  1. WTF is a 2.4, 3.5, and 3.7L Saab engine?
  2. The 9-5 uses T7, the 9-3 2.0 T8, and the 9-3 2.8 Motronic, so obviously one "tune" can't work for all of them
  3. I see no way that thing can "optimize" stuff just by being plugged into the ODB port
  4. While a legit tune can indeed improve HP (by keeping the wastegate closed longer), I don't see any way that a tune can get you 5 MPG....hint, the factory engineers who spent thousands of hours making sure the engines met economy, emissions, and performance targets aren't stupid

THERE IS NOT SUCH THING AS "CHIP TUNING" FOR A SAAB

You can get stage 1 tune for you LPT no modifications needed here


With an intake you can get one with more power

Wtih in take and Downpipe more

With ntake Downppe and intercooer more (Stage III)

Hello everyone, how could i tell if this was installed on a car? A guy wants to trade me an 03 SAAB 9-3 with a motor out of an 04 SAAB 9-3 aero. When i drove the car, it made 18 pounds of boost but would start to miss and stutter after about 15-16psi. The guy had it diagnosed by a shop and they said the coils need replacement. Could this stuttering be due to a tuning issue/high boost? How can i tell?
