Smile Nordic Stage 2 installed but some probs.

Hi,

have installed today on my 9-5 AERO (Manual) (2000).

-ECU Nordic Stage 2
-3,5 Bar FPR
-Ferrita Exhaust System wit 3" DP and Racecat
-Nick Tallifero Airpipe


The car want to go but canīt.......p.ex. pressure in 3. gear is about 10,15PSI, when reaching about 4000U/min the pressure Raise a bit.


From what could this be?

Video: http://www.myvideo.de/watch/6590442/...Stage3_Ferrita


New Vids:

Here you can see how the boost is dancing.

The funny thing i have noticed, my Boost Gauge show me 0,7 Bar, but in the Tachometer the Boost Gauge is
nicely in the middle Red part.

My Boost Gauge is installed at the little hose wich go to the Bosch BOV.

How can this be? The car mesures full boost, but at the vacuum line from the BOV are only 0,7 Bar?

Could be your mass airflow sensor, spark plugs, or boost pressure controller (BPC)

How many miles does the car have?

probably something stupid like a leaking hose somewhere...my cousins car was doing that, it it was an 03....he had a leaking hose...mayb u have one too, since it is a 00'...

or the BCV, boost control valve...take it off and clean it

or air flow sensor. like LeGIT said ;(

The car has 160 000km on it.

The nspark plugs looking god, but used.

Donīt know how long they are installed.

Will change them tomorrow and block the one hose fromm the BCV.


Hope it will help.

Have blocked the first hose from the BCV, but no positive effect.

My fuel was low so i filled the tank full of 100 Oktan Fuel.

I think it is a little better now, but not perfect.

My Spark looks good i think, here is a pic:

When passing 5000rpm the boost goes down do about 0,6-0,7 Bar.


Does it make a difference where the boost gauge is installed?

i have it on the little hose wich go to the blow off (Bosch), is that ok?

All who have a Tuning, too. What you think when you see my Videos, does my Car runs good for Nordic Stage 2?

Should have about 280 HP.

Those plugs are DONE.

Get NGK BCPR7ES, gap to 1.0mm. They are $2/ea at your local auto parts store.

Your car runs at about the stock level it seems. You will know when you are running full potential

Thats what iīm thinking, it is running a little more agressive then stock, perhaps a little more power.

But not 280 HP.

Everybody told me that i must use: NGK PFR6H-10 , but you write another one.

You can use either plug...most use BCPR7es due the significantly lower cost..but you will get less life out of them as well..
Either way gap plugs to .9mm.

No.

You will need to tap it elsewhere, most ideal would be a vac line coming directly off of the manifold. The BPV line is actually controlled via a solenoid on a T7 car.

edit: this thread will help, it applies more to a Trionic 7 9-3, but it will be a good base to start from to find the correct place for your 9-5

How can you use a $2 plug in a t7 car? I thought that you had to run iridiums/platinum/expensive plugs with any black DI. This is not the case?

You need to run NGK BCPR7ES plugs, simple as that.

Hi,

man i stil donīt happy.

Itīs like stock.

I have a question.

I bought the Ecu from a another Saab Driver with the same car.

He had let disvorce the ECU via Tech 2 from his car.

I have installed it, and then programmed the engine immobilizer.

Thats it, perhaps i have to do something special to the Ecu with the Tech2?

Do i have make any error?

Please help me.

Today i spend hours playing with the Tech 2.

Have drive to see the live Diagnostic in Tech 2.

Then i was sick of it and reinstalled the original Ecu.

What should i say, itīs a difference from day to night.


The acceleratir is a lot more aggressive and the accleration has improve about ca.0,6 sec . (p.ex. 3. & 4. Gear 60km/h - 120km/h)

With the Ferrita,Downpipe und 3,5 FPR he is running very good.

I have read the Software Versions out of the Ecuīs and was afraid...


ORIGINAL ECU:






NORDIC ECU:




You see something interesting?

And now see how it boosts Stock!

Best Wishes from the "Autobahn".
