|Icerider2001||I just ordered the BSR from Nick.....I should get it monday so I'll tell you guys how it is then|

It all depends to an what year car you have. I had BSR Stage III on an LPT ( loved it) but at that time there was no PPC for a 2000 9-5 ( there may be now) DeLorean bought it from me and has been running my ECU in his car with stock DP and Catback for like 2 years now with no, accroding to him, ill effects ( but it migh be limiting his available HP and TQ???)
If you nwat to load and unlaod the BSR is good, if you want to swap out I think the nordic tune is better...
Nick sells both so call and ask him...

You can go stage3 on the early auto's, but from what I hear the difference is negligable because they limit the torque to stage2 levels. The DP also allows for faster spool up on the TD04, but that little GT17 in his linear already spools so fast I wouldn't really see a point.
Now if he does the TD04 swap, thats a different story.
The main thing to remember when mod'ing is that you will ALWAYS want more. Plan accordingly.

|Aero02||BSR is a PPC unit, isn't it? Meaning its more like the 'flash' style ecu tune he is used to. I'm not positive, but I believe you can flash and un-flash your ECU with the PPC but it is specific to your VIN and security code.|

|lar95||thanks. i will check it out now.|
|04-23-2008 04:53 PM|
I would look though that to get a good idea of what some other people have done
when you get a list of parts, post them up and we should be able to let you know if you have any holes before you order

|lar95||thanks craig very helpful. i have a lot to learn with the saab. i just want to buy the right things and not waste my money on unneeded items|

|viggenkid||All 9-5's a t7 (black DI cassette) the box on top of the valvecover. T5 cars were pre-2000 9-3(except viggen), 900's and 9000's. These cars have a red DI cassette. Recently DIY t5 tunes are becoming more common, however T7suite has yet to be developed. Search t5suite on the forum if your interested. Not sure if anyone has come up with a flash ability like on your audi|

|lar95||i'm pretty much down for whatever has to be done. swap out or not|
|04-23-2008 04:17 PM|
im not sure of why. i have a flash program in my audi it is install an uninstall.
but im am very new to saab. i dont know what the t5 or t7 really is for sure
|04-23-2008 04:07 PM|
|viggenkid||There are not DIY tuning programs for T7 yet, for T5 yes. Also you cannot turn the tune on and off. you can buy a extra ECU with the tune on it, and then swap the ECU when you want, but is not a switch. Also why would you want to turn it off? MPG should actually increase as long as you are not laying into all the time.|
|04-23-2008 04:01 PM|
|lar95||i think i want the one that i program myself and turn on and off|
|04-23-2008 02:01 PM|
|viggenkid||do you want more HP or more TQ? price? i think usually you just pay a core charge they send you the tuned ECU, return your original and they refund the core charge. or you could overnight your ECU out to the tuner|
|04-23-2008 01:23 PM|
i can check on the regulator. but just need to decide bsr or nordic.
i would like to just program the one on the car i think
|04-23-2008 01:22 PM|
|viggenkid||BSR is rated at 233hp and 278ftlbs torque and runs $885. both require a fuel pressure regulator i think|
|04-23-2008 01:21 PM|
You get a new ECU for the nordic stuff.
Not sure about the BSR.
|04-23-2008 01:20 PM|
|lar95||i mean like do you have to replace ecu or is it a flash type program loaded into the ecu on the vech already|
|04-23-2008 01:19 PM|
You pretty much just plug the ECU in, and drive.
