disco potato now cooking under the hood of my 9-3...

Boosting around 22 psi-This thing flies!Wheel spin is very easy to accomplish))).I had some problems getting it going-no fault of the hardware,it was my own stupidity,but now the thing rocks.
current setup:
sqr (stage ?) ecu about- 22 psi max boost
volvo green injectors
jt 3" dp w/v-band adapter welded on.
gt28rs turbo with v-band adapter
turbo xs type-h rfl bov
viggen remus 2.5" exhaust
viggen clutch (hope it holds)
viggen intercooler (mp performance i/c when they are done)
ngk bcp-7es plugs
coolant bypass
I think that's it for the engine.Not a straight swap,but worth the aggravation.I will post pictures when I get a chance.

Sounds great, glad you got it going. What boost are you hitting at 4k, 5k and 6k rpm?

I have heard these turbos can actually spool up TOO quickly when installed in Saabs. What a wonderful thing that must be.

I wish I could answer that question-it's really hard to look at the greddy boost gauge when I'm driving on sandy,icy roads here in CT with buckets of torque steer and wheel spin!
I will try to determine that if I can but the spool up is very quick.At first it is not very quick,but I'm guessing maybe when it hits about 4000 rpm,it pretty much shoots up to 7000.It's very fast.
I hit fuel cut once ERP,do you know why that is?It was at like 22-23 psi.Maybe I have to adjust my wastegate actuator a little bit?Thanks.

Whats your source for those injectors. I asked our local junkyard, and they have a 3 person long waiting list.

I would look at Accell or one of the other companies for some cheaper alternatives to that.
