Got the SE on the Rollers!
direct C/P from SC:
The local DSM guys had a Dyno day @ f1 dyno in portland Maine.. and, as usual, I tagged Along to help where I could, And watch some nice cars put down some impressive #'s.

first was a friend's '04 EVO RS with MBC, bigger FMIC, and S-AFC for Tuning.

at Stock boost, and -5% Across the board, he put down 306AWHP!

Next, is an '03 EVO with 10.5cm 16G housing From the '04 MR. DSMlink 3" d/p opened race gas, and 25Psi. I'm probably Forgetting Some Stuff... but 422AWHP!!

Then there was a 7cm 16G'd 1997 GSC that only made 250AWHP...somewhat dissapointing, Since he had a LOT of mods...

and another '95 GSX that WAs havign issues with fuel-delivery... at 17Psi he was running 9:1 a/f.. when he got to 23PSi, it would be Fine until ~5kRpm, and SHOOT to 18:1!!!!! he only managed 311AWHP on all the short low boost pulls.

Then, I decided to throw the saab on the rollers. For $45.. who wouldn't???!

@ ~14Psi (extra load from Dyno makes the MBC Spike/Fuel-cut.) I managed 228FWHP(@ 5700RPM) and 250Ft/lb. (@3900Rpm)

Since I was watching the car, I didn't see it, but the guys in the lobby were all in awe. We were all expecting to see ~190HP (myself included).

I about soild my britches when they showed me the plot.

Not too bad For MBC and 3" intake/K&N...

Those are my ONLY power mods!

It would have been nice to raise the boost to 15.5 and squeeze an even 230, but my MBC+A didn't get here until after I got home.

Anyways... that's how I spent my Saturday!

Talk about "good times"!

sounds real nice. just think how much power you can put down with some real mods :twisted:

jrbrangi 03-26-2005 03:42 PM

makes me feel liek shit cause I put down 196whp and 252ft/lbs of torque, and I have SQR stage III. But im still rock the same sided piece of shit base intercooler. Do you have a viggen IC in there?.

jrbrangi 03-26-2005 03:45 PM

I should have looked, you have the HOT now I don't feel AS bad.

do you have a HOT model? I understand that not all 99 93's had the TD04 turbo unit, and that counts for a lot right there.

ricot83 03-26-2005 03:48 PM

i dont think any 99- 9-3 had the tdo4 actually

g96nt 03-26-2005 03:57 PM

No.. I'm t25....
stupid piece of Crap =0/

And yes... viggen IC for me....

g96nt 03-26-2005 04:42 PM

typical saab torque curve... a-typical HP.... to me at least.

Looks like I have ~250 crank right now....

oh yeah.. stock motor w/ 150k miles already!

Stalker 03-26-2005 05:14 PM

Well from what I can find out the difference in the HOT and non-HOT is the IC, stiffer wg spring and ecu... +15HP? Just to add to this, Ive heard of a 99 HOT with the same mods putting down 175whp in a 100F shop...

g96nt 03-26-2005 05:28 PM

It certainly Wasn't 100* today

It was about 55, Actually.

175 seems A *bit* low.

Stalker 03-26-2005 06:03 PM

This was definitely a run with the IC heat soaked. A very hot humid ATL summer day with the ac running the whole way over I heard. I'm ready to dyno mine to see what kinda gains I get with my current harware and mbc before i go to the software swap. Nice #'s though btw.

g96nt 03-26-2005 06:32 PM

ahh crap
ya know what.....
I may have left the ACC on

I'm so stupid sometimes.....

at least the a/c turns off @ WOT 3k+, right?

Stalker 03-26-2005 06:43 PM

Beats me.. Whenever i want more decent power i have to turn off that succubus the acc :lol: I hope my car pulls decent #'s (auto w/turbo back exhaust 2.5 to flex then saabsport-speedparts intake and mbca) I might wait until i get my viggen IC, and im too scared im gonna pull some crappy runs :oops:

jrbrangi 03-26-2005 09:08 PM

yea i have the small turbo its the base model, tdo4 someday

citronxbeige 03-26-2005 09:34 PM

would have been so much cooler if you did 'soil your britches'

Blaque 03-26-2005 11:47 PM

Thats pretty damn good.

Glad you didn't spike w/ that MBC. When i was using mine I spiked alot and often hit fuel cut.. so I ended up removing it.

Boxerchip 03-27-2005 09:47 AM

damn man those are some impressive numbers.

Thanks for the motivating post! Nice numbers, im hoping my numbers are like yours in my ng900 T25.

Im guessing anywhere from 220 to 230 with my current mods. I think i will put a 3" dp before the dyno to see if i can squeeze 235! I would be very happy with 235 and 250+ torque!
