abdukted1456 you shoudln't need to raise you base boost by adjusting the WG arm. try putting it back to stock. I had my base boost too high and the car actually felt like it adapted downward. put it back around stock and it pulls nicer.

ricot83 ok so i went out again and got quitew a few 1st and second gear runs... the car hits 14psi i dont like this at all, seeing as i can not hit the gas in 3rd gear now, for fears of it going into limp home mode. i am ordering a new BCS just to see if that is blown. the wastegate works i tried it with compressed air and it worked fine at 5-10psi..... so thats ok

lemonscu Im waiting for someone to say its not possible. All I hear is hardware and software, Im glad to see someone trying it out w/out software and having positive results. Do you have a A/F gauge set up, if so how are the numbers?

ricot83 dude it is amazing the 3" dp teamed up with the 2.5" delivery pipe there is so much top end pull it is amazing.. like i said though i could not go that fast

Stalker Hmm interesting rico.... When i had my dp put on, i drove the car hard for a good 6 runs or so, and with my mbc tuned right under the fuel cut i still hit none... (fuelcuts that is) I wonder if i wasnt running the mbc if the ecu would have done the same on mine??

Edit: oh yeah not everyone knows my car is a t-5

ricot83 ya my base boost went up to 11-12 in 3rd ..... in 1st and 2nd the boost goes to 10 its cool its like having an smbc... but the car hasnt even adapted yet cuz like i said i went for like a mile

DC_SAAB Ricot...

Did your base boost get raised during your mod?
03-12-2005 03:08 PM
citronxbeige awesome, did you paint your 2.5" inlet pipe black or is it a different one than the silver in the other pics? you accomplished a lot in the past year and turned a stock car into a heavily modded street beast imagine what that thing will do with stage 3 software

took my car out today

Well i took my car more than just around the block today and lemme tell u this thing rocks... with all the new mods and such (stage 3 hardware.. stock software). It only hits around 11psi which i guess is an improvement over the stock 9 psi but it spools nice and quick i only went out for like a 1 mile run down the street but its great, i miss the car so damned much... i will let u guys know how everything else is asap...

all the new mods are listed on my webpage and in the interest of keeping this short i will not type them all here...
