you mean you re-gained "a ton" of power
did you check openSID or some other logging tool to notice the intermittent failure?
The PFS kit, is that their "BIG-SAAB95" kit? It's 624 EUR so that's more like 860 USD plus shipping I'd figure another 100-200 and maybe even customs... So.... not as good as a deal as you make it, imho.
Also the IC hose kit that came with your PFS kit is already 330, the IC is 430 if you buy them separate.. yes, that's Euros. The ETS is only 560$ or so at GS... that's 410 Euros, which is CHEAPER than the PFS "do88"... what- or whoever that is Plus shipping (ETS being in the US, PFS in EU).
That said.. How do you like it? If it wasn't as expensive, I would consider it..
edit: I stand corrected, do88.se seems to be a reputable manufacturer for EU parts..
also the kit on PFS is 100 Euro cheaper than on do88.se themselves.

as for something that doesnt make any difference in HP i only ordered an upper IC pipe because it came with two lower pipes and a drop in FMIC for $700... so for $200 more than a ETS you get all the piping from PFS.com... you cant go wrong with that

|DustinS||Quite a high cost for something that is only for making the engine bay look a bit better. Plus changing the sensors is too much a pain for no gains in power.|

|9kaero9-5turbo||id like a set for 04 if possible !|
|01-27-2014 06:54 AM|
im not knocking your method, i just have my own way of doing things.
can anyone comfirm that i can switch the old sensors for the new sensors. id like to tackle this project this weekend. and if not can any one make a copy of WIS for me?

No contest there for me. Absolutely I'd clip two plugs and solder one in their place vs. ripping out and replacing an entire engine harness. What kind of question is that? lol
Of course, if you think it's hard reading and understanding a wiring diagram and you don't know how to do a good job at soldering or don't have the right tools...well, actually, then shucks, you shouldn't really be swapping a harness either. That'd almost be like tuning and repeatedly blowing up customer cars without understanding a compressor map, but, you know stuff like that goes on every day.
edit: And I've SEEN a harness so I guess I'm qualified craig. Here's what a full 9-5 harness looks like, without the engine harness, btw
|01-24-2014 09:28 AM|
So, you're saying that you'd prefer to cut, and solder wires in an engine bay, after taking hours to research the pinning of a wire harness/ECU
...Than unclip the master connector from the ECU, and the 10 or so connectors in the engine bay and replace it. Have you ever SEEN the 9-5 engine harness, or are you being general, based on other cars?

+1 didnt care typing it
i could probably check WIS on the weekend if/when i get a chance.
|01-24-2014 08:44 AM|
can anyone comfirm that the sensor outputs are the same? i dont have WIS, i see that there are the same amount of wires. old vs new. i just need schematics
|01-23-2014 11:26 AM|
Completely different plugs.
If you've seen the engine harness, it's all quick-release.
It would take about 15-minutes to swap one over, Vs cutting/splicing.
|01-23-2014 11:22 AM|
i'm not sure why in hell would you swap a complete harness just for changing one plug, but to each their own pretty sure there's no flashing or anything similar that needs to be done, the ecu pinning also didnt change much thru all the years.
of course the sensor and the attachment point is physically different but the electrical output's gotta be the same?
|01-23-2014 09:05 AM|
I believe it'd clean things up a little, too.
|01-23-2014 08:57 AM|
The sensors are physically different, and the later pipe has a nipple for vacuum/boost near the throttle body.
I'd imagine that there's no re-pinning needed, as the ECU's are interchangable.
|01-23-2014 08:22 AM|
good questions there, my early style charge piping is in bad condition so i was looking to change over to later style.
would there be any benefit with the later style piping, is it any different in terms of diameters, bends, heatsoak?
i would guess it's the same pinning but the new sensor will have the two sensors combined in one housing (guessing MAP & Charge Air Temp). so shouldnt have any problems going to the newer style if you get the sensor and plug to put on the harness instead of the 2 old separate plugs.
|01-23-2014 06:05 AM|
99-00 have 2 separate sensors for charge air temp & pressure, where later years only have one??? can any one comfirm this?
does any one know if i can go from the 2 sensor to the new style single with out re-pinning the ecu?? or better yet as anyone tired this?
and just incase anyone is curious the thread pitch for both sensors in the earlier style(99-00) is 10x1.25 & 12x1.50. hope this helps

|renizer||just curious, what's the differences between a 02-up and the earlier IC piping? thanks|
