If it's made for a '91 it can be used on the '92, but the one made for the '90 can't be (can't be used on the '91 either). Supposedly 20 addt'l hp. Not sure on boost.

90, 91 and 92 9000 T's are all very different, and likely a "redbox" (DI/APC) won't interchange between any of them.

The '91 and '92 will. There's enough "sameness" between the 2 to use the same box for DI/APC control.

Have you tried this? I would have thought they were very different being that one also interfaces with the TCS system?

Didn't know how to look that up. I would guess they are the same. But its just a guess. I don't know that tcs and apc interface . My turbo has never cut back when tcs comes on it just pulls me across a couple of lanes

I think I know where you're getting the box. I DID come across something interesting when I did a Google search. It said 220 hp when using 98 octane! Now it's possible that European octane ratings are different than ours but I'm not sure about that.

Ah. You know its probably the way to go but I Like playing with hard parts more than software.

get a 86-90 then that way you're playing with a true c9000 with a b202 in it instead of the odd ball of a b234 thats in these 91-93's

Hey. Don't wanna be a Dick but chill out on dissing 91s and 92s
My opinion which is just an opinion is these are the best ones made.

i have a 91. only i love the 91 but honestly if you are looking to tune it the best option is to t5 it. you said you are looking to keep it older so i suggested you get a 86-91 since that is the true classic. if you are looking to keep it original or make a carlsson clone just say that i'm just playing anyhow.

and the reason i hate on 92' is the same reason everybody else does. TCS. another reason to t5 that bitch

i think a piped 91 can eat any t5 car. you t5ing a 91?? if so thats not cool. tcs is tollerable you dont have a vac leak and clear your codes before your car shits out you dont have a problem. its nice to avoid tcs but its not what people think.

I have 91 and am t5ing it for numerous reasons. first PO took the damned engine bay harness and i can't find another. second i have an aero turbo and need to tune the car accordingly.

Just got a hacked apc. Come get that and my 91 I'm kinda sad to hear you are turning a 91 into like a 94 or some shit. You get your tdo4 lines yet. I still gotta get some. We should drag this spring. Prob won't happen but would be sick.

i had a 93.5 so yeah i have the appropriate lines for the 91-93. wait... you have a 91 and a 92? and yeah it's not a big deal though because eventually i'll have all the parts to change back too it's not irreversible. well the redbox is good for how many hp? i mean i plan on turning my td04hl-15G to a td04hl-19t so i'll need it to tune to more than just 220hp

I'm getting a red box for my baby (92) like ray said plus 20 HP. But just the otherday I got a hacked apc control boosted to 15 psi. With rpm switch. I guess it flies.
