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

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

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.

Yes you are correct! Some info in this thread is not though. The trans is the limiting factor in what you do, I was told. The downpipe is really not needed because of the trans. Call Nick and he will explain it to you. Very helpful. As I see it a Nordic ECU will make you the most hp.

Yes but you are limited by the the down pipe to stage 2, i believe you can go stage 3 with an automatic transmission, (i think a 9-3 has it done on here)

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.

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...
