dasaabguy Thanks for the motivating post! Nice numbers, im hoping my numbers are like yours in my ng900 T25.

Im guessing anywhere from 220 to 230 with my current mods. I think i will put a 3" dp before the dyno to see if i can squeeze 235! I would be very happy with 235 and 250+ torque!

Boxerchip damn man those are some impressive numbers.
03-26-2005 11:47 PM
Blaque Thats pretty damn good.

Glad you didn't spike w/ that MBC. When i was using mine I spiked alot and often hit fuel cut.. so I ended up removing it.

citronxbeige would have been so much cooler if you did 'soil your britches'
03-26-2005 09:08 PM
jrbrangi yea i have the small turbo its the base model, tdo4 someday
03-26-2005 06:43 PM
Stalker Beats me.. Whenever i want more decent power i have to turn off that succubus the acc I hope my car pulls decent #'s (auto w/turbo back exhaust 2.5 to flex then saabsport-speedparts intake and mbca) I might wait until i get my viggen IC, and im too scared im gonna pull some crappy runs
03-26-2005 06:32 PM
g96nt ahh crap
ya know what.....
I may have left the ACC on

I'm so stupid sometimes.....

at least the a/c turns off @ WOT 3k+, right?
03-26-2005 06:03 PM
Stalker This was definitely a run with the IC heat soaked. A very hot humid ATL summer day with the ac running the whole way over I heard. I'm ready to dyno mine to see what kinda gains I get with my current harware and mbc before i go to the software swap. Nice #'s though btw.
03-26-2005 05:28 PM
g96nt It certainly Wasn't 100* today

It was about 55, Actually.

175 seems A *bit* low.
03-26-2005 05:14 PM
Stalker Well from what I can find out the difference in the HOT and non-HOT is the IC, stiffer wg spring and ecu... +15HP? Just to add to this, Ive heard of a 99 HOT with the same mods putting down 175whp in a 100F shop...
03-26-2005 04:42 PM

typical saab torque curve... a-typical HP.... to me at least.

Looks like I have ~250 crank right now....

oh yeah.. stock motor w/ 150k miles already!
03-26-2005 03:57 PM
g96nt No.. I'm t25....
stupid piece of Crap =0/

And yes... viggen IC for me....
03-26-2005 03:48 PM
ricot83 i dont think any 99- 9-3 had the tdo4 actually

do you have a HOT model? I understand that not all 99 93's had the TD04 turbo unit, and that counts for a lot right there.
03-26-2005 03:45 PM
jrbrangi I should have looked, you have the HOT now I don't feel AS bad.

DeLorean sounds real nice. just think how much power you can put down with some real mods

Got the SE on the Rollers!

direct C/P from SC:
The local DSM guys had a Dyno day @ f1 dyno in portland Maine.. and, as usual, I tagged Along to help where I could, And watch some nice cars put down some impressive #'s.

first was a friend's '04 EVO RS with MBC, bigger FMIC, and S-AFC for Tuning.

at Stock boost, and -5% Across the board, he put down 306AWHP!

Next, is an '03 EVO with 10.5cm 16G housing From the '04 MR. DSMlink 3" d/p opened race gas, and 25Psi. I'm probably Forgetting Some Stuff... but 422AWHP!!

Then there was a 7cm 16G'd 1997 GSC that only made 250AWHP...somewhat dissapointing, Since he had a LOT of mods...

and another '95 GSX that WAs havign issues with fuel-delivery... at 17Psi he was running 9:1 a/f.. when he got to 23PSi, it would be Fine until ~5kRpm, and SHOOT to 18:1!!!!! he only managed 311AWHP on all the short low boost pulls.

Then, I decided to throw the saab on the rollers. For $45.. who wouldn't???!

@ ~14Psi (extra load from Dyno makes the MBC Spike/Fuel-cut.) I managed 228FWHP(@ 5700RPM) and 250Ft/lb. (@3900Rpm)

Since I was watching the car, I didn't see it, but the guys in the lobby were all in awe. We were all expecting to see ~190HP (myself included).

I about soild my britches when they showed me the plot.

Not too bad For MBC and 3" intake/K&N...

Those are my ONLY power mods!

It would have been nice to raise the boost to 15.5 and squeeze an even 230, but my MBC+A didn't get here until after I got home.

Anyways... that's how I spent my Saturday!

Talk about "good times"!
