There was a catalog kit for bumping HP in lpt's. This is probably it.
If it were me, I wouldn't do anything with the ECU until you got rid of the Gt17.
Once you do that, you can do whatever the Aero guys are doing.

|9Kwrecker||UPDATE: I bought this car (officially) today. It was truly amazing how much easier it was to sell my Mazda compared to any Saab I've ever tried to get rid of.|

nice find with the kit, if nothing else it is a spare ECU!
however alll that being said, aftermarket software would still yeild a pretty big gain compared to OEM upgrades. either way you will notice the extra 30hp

|9Kwrecker||Whatever year SOC was in Detroit, that's where the guy I know got them from.|

In case it wasn't clear, the kit you have is like a factory stage one tune. I thought official numbers were like 15 hp or 185 output once installed.
The kits were cleared out at an SOC like 08 or 07??!?! I was there, don't remember. People snatched them up though cause they were like 15 bucks and came with a set of plugs and it made a great spare ecu for tuning.

I'd like to see it on the 17" 5 spoke Aeros or the double threes eventually. Anyone have pics of either setup on a 99-01 red wagon?
The stockers are in fantastic shape though, and I washed them last night and they really don't look too bad, so they'll do for now.

This is a bona-fide score on several fronts.
Look around for some different wheels for that lovely lady, though. Those base-model shoes give me the terminal sads.

It's quite the step up from my current daily, '02 Protege5. Truly a different class of car altogether.
Plus the wheels don't have to come off my bike to fit in the 9-5.

|Saabeh||I've said it before, 9-5's make outstanding daily drivers.|
|06-12-2014 11:15 AM|
I must say, though, I'm driving it today as a sort of extended test drive, and I'm real surprised at how nice it is (I always had c900's and 9000's, never a 9-5).
|06-12-2014 10:54 AM|
|Saabeh||Just get a stage one tune lol.|
|06-12-2014 10:50 AM|
Just waiting on my Mazda to sell now.
|06-12-2014 07:32 AM|
|Saabeh||Its not a bolt in setup, it would have to be programmed with the car's immobilizer code and VIN.|

thats sounds pretty cool and the info parts etc look legit. seems to me likes its exactly what Saabeh said.
FPT kit for the lpt
|06-11-2014 05:12 PM|
Here's what I found:
Basically, what i found by searching the part number on the box is that it is a kit that brings the car up to 200hp. I also read that they were being sold at a Saab Owner Convention several years back for very cheap. When I told the current owner of the car about it he said a friend gave them to him after picking them up at SOC.
And a gratuitous pic of the car I'll hopefully own soon:

|9Kwrecker||If my bike ride gets rained out after work I'll swing by his house and get some pics.|
|06-11-2014 08:32 AM|
|Saabeh||A pic of the kit would help. It MIGHT be something like a FPT ECU and colder plugs.|
|06-11-2014 08:23 AM|
|9Kwrecker||I don't have the part number or anything, I was hoping somebody knew what I was talking about. If not maybe I can go get the part number for the kit.|
|06-11-2014 08:14 AM|
|Saabeh||Never heard of it. We're going to need more details.|
