    Hi, My engine management light keeps coming on when I go down and up a certain valley on my local motorway putting me into limp mode, by stopping the car and starting again I have my normal performance back but the management light comes and goes off as it feels like? I now have a reader and the...

    Hello all, on my 1999 9-3 the Check engine light has started flashing 7 times which apparently means Adaptation as below Number of flashes Function 2 Manifold absolute pressure sensor 3 Temperature sensor, manifold 4 Temperature sensor, coolant 5 Throttle position sensor 6 Oxygen sensor...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I know that the T7 adapts its performance to suit the way you drive, but I was wondering what it does when the "S" button is pressed: (a) Is it a fixed different "Sport" programme? (B) Is it just a percentage change on the normal adaption that has been set? or © Is it a separate program...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi folks. I've seen lots of references to adaptation runs since I've been on this site, but could somebody be so kind as to tell me what the Trionic engine management system on my 98 Annie 225 bhp actually DOES when it adapts itself to my driving style (generally Elderly Lady, but with...

    Hello everybody I have stage 3 on my car + intake and delivery pipe (stock 230ps) but something is not ok with it. I dynoed and i don't get full benefit of it (262ps 390Nm). I think the problem has with the torque to do. If i could get the promised 440Nm then i should be able to get of...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Guys Thanks to some great advice I got on here about wiring the ECM on my GM900 I discovered the above flash code for my CEL. The car is running fine and I assume that this is something to do with the timing? which sounds a bit out? - Does anyone know what this really means? I have to use...
  7. Saabscene: Performance
    I had the recent pleasure of getting to pour over the WIS for both the 9-5 and 9-3 range (as well as a glimpse into the EPC) ... and I think I may be able to get a good explanation going as to why T7 tends to adapt downwards. Firstly according to the WIS both T5 AND T7 control boost by...
  8. Saabscene: Performance
    Hi all, Can somebody give me some more insight in the effect of hardware modifications (like intercooler, inlet pipe, sports cat etc..) on a stock programmed T7 ECU? Does the ECU adapt to them in a correct way? Best regards, Hans-Martin
  9. Saabscene: Performance
    I have been experimenting with a number of different octane fuel ratings and types of late. One thing that caught my attention is that the car performance varied with fuel type. This variation has been covered on SSc to a large degree, so I won't rake over that again. What I am interested in...

    i have only ever owned 2.0 litre saabs of various forms and have very recently aquired a 2.3 cd carly however i am not to sure of exactly how it should feel under boost except of course and also whether it is performing as it should so my next question is (strange as it may seem) is there...

  12. Saabscene: Performance
    I'm looking forward to receiving and installing my Speedparts Stage 1 ECU very shortly. I am quite anxious about carrying out the several adaptation runs required in order to install the ECU. I don't want to sound like a sissy but I am really worried about reaching speeds of over 100mph which...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I'm on my third CDE full blown and never had a problem but on my 95 2.3 I yank the fuse and boot it up a hill and the readapation works fine. After a few months the performance has dropped off. Yank the fuse and do it all again and its fine for another few months. If a fit a manual bleed valve...

  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I managed to get up at 6am on Sunday to make use of empty roads and try the boost adaptation run as detailed on BillJs website. I removed fuse no. 5 which stated it was for the APC, left it for a few mins, and then started my driving, A nice uphill on the Malvern Hills was chosen, and a few...

  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I was reading somewhere that it can be useful to perform a trionic adaptation run to effectively clear the slate when getting a new car. I have changed my AERO to optimax or super U/L. It goes a bit quicker but is it worth doing an adaptation run (whatever that means)? Also could the optimax...
