Can anyone recommend an aftermarket wastegate actuator for my 99 9-3 SE. I've looked up Forge but they don't list one directly for the NG900 or 9-3.

The reason I'm looking is because I can't reach fuel cut off therefore full boost even with my MBC-A or wastegate actuator unpluged. I don't have any leaks, the car has been smoke tested.

with you WGA unplugged you SHOULD be hitting cutoff. I would pull the downpipe off and look at the wastegate itself and check for proper fuction.

i would use that spring unless your software calls for it

If I disconnect the the vacuum from the WGA it doesn't hit cutoff, it will boost into the red but not hit cutoff. When I pull on the actuator linkage (rod) the it is fairly stiff however it is not very quick to return when I let go. It also looks very rusty. I was thinking of playing with the adjustment in the linkage but it's too rusty and I'll end up damaging it.

As for the Genuine Saab WGA spring, I wonder if they would put a very mild (just slightly stiff then stock) spring in for me? Anyone know what they charge for the entire actuator?

The one from forge the 900 is the right one for the t25. I put one on Blaque_Outs car from saablink and it has helped a bunch with his stg 3 nordic. Very fine looking aswell.
