Boost?

I was just wondering if anyone know's what the factory boost PSI is on the 07 9-3 2.0T and how much more boost can the stock turbo handle. Any info would be great.

the stock turbo can handle as much boost as you put into it (i think) it is just getting that boost to the turbo and getting the rest of the car to handle it/actually do it.

Saab claims 12.3PSI on a hard pull in 5th gear if I remember correctly, you need to tune the ECU to get more boost out of it. Don't try to put a MBC on. Tuning the car unlocks an insane amount of power for not putting on any physical modifications.
