Didn't I say that Maptun chips were the balls? (when they work)

Good for you, enjoy it. Glad it worked out.

yeah 60-onward is sick. once you get up to speed and get that cold air really blowing over the intercooler, it just pulls like a frieght train. There may be lots of cars that are quick 0-60 but not so many that can pull so damn hard @ 90+ and still have plenty of go left to give.

nordic isn't exactly cheap either. But I'm sure you will love whatever chip you get, especially at Stage 4.

if you were able to start the car with the maptun ecu at least once, then it a bit less likely to be secuirty. if the TWICE/immobiliser code was not there/not right it would never have started at all. (don't ask me how i know this)

I know it is frustrating but they will fix it and when they do... hold on tight....I currently am having a "traction problem" due to cold temps allowing me so much boost. even broke the tires loose from about a 45 MPH roll today. my car likes this weather, the needle peaks all the way in the red and then backs off a bit, and then builds real smooth all the way to the end. don't have a long enough road to see how long i can peg it there, because by the time it reaches the end of the red I am going WAY TOO fast so i gotta brake... all those wet leaves on the ground are not helping traction either.

mike saunders This sucks.....Did you have any other mods (FPR, bigger injectors, etc) that Maptun didn't know about? Could they have missed something?
11-05-2004 07:38 AM
abdukted1456 it sounds like your software is probably OK, probably a bad connection in the ECU or bad soldering job? if the car ran and then shut down? just an idea.
11-05-2004 07:33 AM
xaamottomaax Man, this is the second time we have heard of a Maptun ECU problem out of the box. Hopefully you will get it straight and be as happy as Abdukted is with his now.

Boxerchip Ok, so I got my stage 3 ECU... Installed the FPR and plugged in the ECU, everything worked fine no CEL or anything. I started to drive went down the road a ways dident even get to see a full boost when i came to a stop light.... my car cuts off. I plug back in the stock ECU drive home and try the maptun again. it works for 20 seconds.... then stops. the stock ECU will still work but the after the fist time the maptun one cuts out it wont even start. I took it to a saab dealer to see if they could use Tech 2 and fix it. It did not work, he said the new ECU would not work. In addition to this my curent ECU i found out is EU spec. I dont even know where to begin... i just want my damn ECU working.

Boxerchip I am not going to say what i payed because i got a discount due to my admin status.... I think they are like 1,100 normally... but call james at group 9 and ask him.
10-12-2004 03:51 PM
The Vigg how much did you pay? I am looking at getting a stage 3 in the next month.
10-12-2004 11:35 AM
Boxerchip ECU has shipped!!!! should be here soon... then the fun starts.
10-05-2004 10:40 AM
Boxerchip I am getting a 3.5 bar fuel pressure regualtor but thats about all i know at this point... If anyone else can give us some more info on this that would be great.
10-05-2004 09:19 AM
DC_SAAB Boxer..,

I just sent my Maptun stage 3 for my NG900 back for an upgrade " ".

I didn't know the Viggens required another regulator for s3, because mine didn't..... Any idea what rate of fuel is required?...must be extreme compared to what it is now.

regards
09-30-2004 08:08 AM
abdukted1456 cool, can't wait to see the dyno sheets!

you are gonna love this upgrade.
09-30-2004 08:00 AM
Boxerchip yeah Stage 3 was ordered and james sent the order to maptun now I just have to install that damn fuel pressure reg and i should be at around 280 HP and 340FTLBS

Hey.... as long as my car is faster than nicks lol

I will definatally run the dyno when i get the ECU In fact im going to do it once with the cone and once with a drop in because no one else seems to have that info.

Ill keep you guys posted... theres more to come.
09-23-2004 07:13 AM
abdukted1456 judging by the big increase from my Maptun stage 1 on my lowly autobox SE, I am sure you will LOVE this upgrade. Let us know how it goes. prepare to see your boost guage pinned.
