unless you have an LPT (Low Pressure Turbo, meaning no APC or intercooler), then it should limit your boost around 10-12psi, and you won't hit the fuel cutoff until 14psi... at least that's how mine works, i'm not sure if australia got the LPTs or not, we never didsanctity said:but doesnt motor cut out with to much boost? or is that only in latter models also what psi do they run standard im new to saab and turbos mine is standard 1982 900 turbo.
Damn, I was sure my old '84 8v had APC -- in fact I clearly remember disconnecting it to have some fun:cheesy:sab aero said:FYI - In Australia we never got the APC until the 16 valve engine came out in 1985 down here. The 1985 model year was THE first year in Australia for APC.
Also no LPT in Australia (Mike) in c900 guise. It will be a 1982 8V that will run 7 to 9psi in stock form.
You sure you don't mean you disconnected the wastegate line to get more boost? As I am 99% sure that no 8V turbo 900s in Australia had the APC box and solenoid. The first APC was found in 1985 in the 16V here.SpecialTool said:Damn, I was sure my old '84 8v had APC -- in fact I clearly remember disconnecting it to have some fun:cheesy:
I suggest you get a manual and havea thorough read... I think the Robert Bentley manual was available for 8V (I know I have the 16V edition)... or I think haynes had an 8V edition too.sanctity said:Timing Chain Tensioner ;oops: looked on this forum but cant find it on my 1982 900 turbo help pls
