Real Time Help...bcv ?

I need a new boost control valve. Is the stock one the way to go, or is there an upgraded one? Car is in the shop right now and I have to call the mechanic back soon with an answer so I can pick up my car today.

I did a search for bcv, but it was too common and did not return results.

gracias. BTW it is for a 95 9k aero.

you have 3 options.

1) buy a new bpc for a million bucks from saab or eeuroparts.com (ok so its really like 265 or something like that).
2) call goldwing saab (1-800-saab-137). they have them in stock and have a 6 month unlimited warranty on them (unlike eeuroparts.com who's warranty is 60 days)
3)run an MBC and completely bypass that bpc valve. you will be able to run 20psi-ish (right 9k guys??)

Nick/StX's advice is sound, I would choose option 2 or 3 from his list.

Also, calphi27, the reason you did not turn up many searches for bcv is because it's commonly referred to as a different acronym, bpc (boost pressure control) valve, as Nick mentioned.

personally i would say go with option 3. and get an mbc+a. PM a guy named SPATL on saabcentral. he sells them iirc. and they arent too expensive.
thats the cheapest solution of the three.

#3 Will work, but 20psi is out of the question without a software upgrade. 14-15psi is the max you'll get before T5 throws fuel fuel cut at you.
