Adaptation run?

I have seen this term thrown around a bit, and I guess I'm wondering what the procedure would be to do this for my car (00'9-3 5spd), besides driving it around for a few days. I figure you have to disconnect the battery, wait a while then...?

I'm guessing it's long pulls in several gears at about 300 miles per hour or something nice and legal like that.

Did you just add software or something? I think thats the only time you need to have a couple adaptation runs.

No, But I removed my SMBC, and added a GS intake in the last week or so.

My boost has been kinda funky so....I thought I would try this for free.

Pretty much all you have to do is stick it into a higher gear and gas it 3K+ for a couple of seconds... do it a couple times to let it adapt

Unhook the battery so the ecu will reset itself then drive doing 3-4 hard pulls from 3000-4500rpm. This is how its done with T5, not sure if T7 is any different.

Thanks!

I'll give it a shot.

Sounds like a good excuse to speed on the way home.

Don't do this if you're due for a state emission's test soon however cause it'll more then likely cause you to fail the OBDII test for not having all the tests run, completed, and passed. Saab's take a bit to go through all of their "BUS Diagnostics" and monitors so that they are OBD set. Otherwise - when you disconnect the battery - touch the leads together to discharge the ECU so that you don't hafta wait for it to "power down." Ad as they all said - beat on it basically to get it the way you want it.

Good tip.

Thanks to "the body" our fair state no longer has emission testing.

I'm not to happy about it.

Sorry to be off topic... but - we had emmissions testing before Jesse was in office? That I did not know! I really think that we could benefit from inspections around here...some of the shit that I see driving around on the highways (usually passing me at high rates of speed) is just plain scary! It seems like I see old toyota carolas with bald tires, bent rims, and doors taped shut with duct tape going like 90mph WAY too often!

(and now on topic) I did a reset on my ECU after the trans swap and was getting much more boost, I might need to do it again with the new exhaust though... at least it gives me an excuse to do some hard pulls in 3rd and 4th
