Today was eventful.

So we got alot done today. Nick (STX221) came over to Maine Maritime from Orono and we spent most of the evening "tinkering" with our toys.

re-installed my freshly painted delivery pipe for one: here is a pic before the install:


(Yes, I painted it in my dorm room, hanging from my ceiling )

I put the 9-3 HOT ecu in; beautiful. Im pulling a strong 17+ lbs in third, fourth and fifth, which is really where the difference shows. Nick (STX221) said he bet 2-3 months before my stock T25 blew at that pressure (just an excues to go big ) but seriously, what do you all thing?

I also fixed my window (I had one of the little plastic rollers crack and my window dropped) - that was a pain in the ass; as well as getting my hood release lever put back in, I managed to kick it off one night.

What else:
Re-aligned shift linkage
Cleaned trunk (minus parts and tools)
and began making my engine bay pretty for this weekend
Oh, and replaced the spring in my BOV.

AND - Missed the oppertunity for some SICK pictures, stupid me forgot the memory card for my camera.

Today was eventful for me as well. Spent the better part of 3 hours detailing the interior and engine bay of my car. I think I went through about a dozen terry cloths cleaning/conditioning the seats w/Lexol and dash with Vinylex.

Tomorrow is get new rubber mounted/balanced, wash/wax the car, polish up some more crap under the hood and who knows what else...

I did on my 95 CSE (using a MBC) for about 6 months till I sold the car. Never had any problems. Just change the oil every 3000 miles.

meh, I wouldn't say its the best situation, but it should be okay for a while. Its more the fact that its just working pretty hard and out of its top end efficiency at that level or pressure. A td04 would be just about right for a good balance of power and driveability.

What turbo comes with the SE HOT models? That's the B205R engine (right?), so it's the TD-04 as opposed to the GT17 that's on the B205L... right? Just trying to make sure that I've got my facts straight...

Its not an SE HOT, its just a NG900 with a HOT ecu, T25 turbo.

Ahhhh, sorry...Im not sure maybe Craig will pitch in. I know he was running a TD-04 but Im not sure if thats the stock turbo/ecu pairing for his car.

meh your turbo should be fine...my car will hold 17psi too, if i get everything set properly so I dont smack fuel cut on a spike. But anyway, my turbo has a 96k miles on it, and no shaft play whatsover...just a beat ass transmission

Well, this HOT ecu was a fluke, which is why it allows me to put out 17lbs, but I do honestly think it gives me better highway performance, even at low boost pressures. Maybe something with the MAP's it has vs the stock NG900 ECU but I cant say for sure.

The other reason I bought it was so that I would have a second ECU - something to keep in my car when one goes to Sweeden for Nordic or Trollspeed if I can convince Tommy to do an ECU for a me

I never really though about the possibility of using a 99' 9-3 HOT ECU in a NG900...how much hardware differences are there anyway? Just the cross-flow IC and the TD04 turbo? If so then it should be pretty easy to get an lpt 9-3 to be a HOT 9-3...or is my thinking wrong? I'd love to give my 9-3 a little more pep sometime, if I can find the parts for cheap enough that is

I'm lost.

My friend has a 2002 SE, and it seems the difference is the intercooloer and maybe the turbo?

So could I run a HOT ECU? Would it make any difference?

Yes you could run a HOT ecu with your current hardware, its a "plug and play", works flawlessly. I didnt even have to the ECU re-assigned to my alarm.

Fuel cutout (on a normal) HOT ecu is still 15.5lbs, and I cant even to pretend to know the technical differences, but I definatly spool quicker, boost harder and more steady in higer gears and no longer have the "jolting" (not from fuel cutout, but something else) issues with my MBC that I had with the stock ECU.

Maybe Nick will chime in and enlighten us all.
