Wrapping up the T7 di on T5 car test.

Well, Nearly 2 years ago I picked up a $20 pre-recall T7 DI cassette, and have used it without a hicup on my stock software 95 900. (T5).

This morning on a cold boost spike to around 18 psi. I got a bit of misfire. Pretty much like what I had on my crapped out T5 units.

I am declaring this unit perfectly acceptable to use, (on stock software). I will be ordering a T5 unit in 2 weeks. And will retain this as another emergency spare.

I can echo the T7 DI success on a T5 car.

Stock software with an MBC

Maybe I can talk Justin at International into taking a bit more off my usual internal price if you get one too.

Don't forget Saablink has its own account at Fred Beans Saab in Philly. I'll call them for a quote too.

Eeuro has the cheapest advertised price of $350 + Free shipping. Dealer wanted $20 more/no discount for volume.

Rudedog, I'm going to order the lower half for around $70 and see what that fixes. I may be able to get all my DIs working again for less than the cost of 1 new one.

P/N 91 67 016

Will it be okay without the MBC or will the BPC not work correctly with the black DI?

Hold it. Last I check the lower half is just the black cover that goes over the coils that are now epoxied in. It was the original T5 DI cassettes that the coil itself could be replaced in the DI assembly. Now its just the boot portion that can be replaced. Unless they changed that on the T7 DI's?

The boot portion can only be changed on t5 cassettes as well.
it was the early DI/APC 9000's that you could replace individual coils. but that design sure changed quickly.
