  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi just got myself a very clean 2000 reg 2.0 SE LPT (Trionic 5 B204E engine), and have took the plunge and bought a Stage 1 remapped ECU with T7 APC valve upgrade included. Only just got it fitted this evening and have hit a bit of a problem, which I was hoping someone could help with. Car...

  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have just bought a '95 2.3 LPT auto (as the 'box is quieter than my 2.3 FPT). I put an APC in as it came without one, ready for possibly transferring the ECU from the FPT. However, currently running with the LPT ECU I find that it frequently hits the fuel cut off with any sort of...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have just bought a late'95 2.3 LPT auto to replace my '96 2.3 FPT auto with a whining gearbox. As an LPT the new one hdoes not have APC. Is there any advantage in fitting an APC to this? (Don't think I can swap the ECU's as the 'new' one has VSS and the FPT did not). PS anyone need an FPT...

    I have an apc valve t7 which is superior to the t5 version but I don't have the money to get the ecu sorted so am willing to swap for a t5 3pin one.

    Hi. I've just purchased an apc valve with 2 electrical pins but my 9-3 has a plug with 3 pins. Any help on marrying these items would be much help. Thanx.

    I have the red APC removed originally from my demised MY91 T16S available for sale. Its in working order - having been used for the last couple of years in my apc'd 5 door and only removed and unused last month or so. I believe it to be unmodified - I haven't done anything to it and when I...

    My 9000 stumbles lots on acc. I have looked for the APC solonid. Not on rad. Two screw holes but not hoses or solonid. Were else do I look ? Thanks, GEORGE!!

  12. Saabscene: Performance
    I have had a look on Speedparts website and they sell a Stage 2 kit for the C900 with Exhaust, Filter, Upgraded APC and Fuel chip. They reckon it brings teh car from 175 to 220bhp, which would be lovely. I have spoken to Elk who said they can get it, but don't normally sell the APC as their...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi back again with another question, I've replaced all the vacuum lines as of now and my turbo still keeps kicking out on me and I have checked that the waste gate can move freely still, so I'm thinking it is the Apc solenoid, my local junk yard has a 9000 cse I use as a parts car(oddly enough...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Theres a tidy looking 9000 Aero just come up on the auction site, had a few tuning mods done to it and the seller says it has had a T7 APC conversion.... Anyone come across this?? If so how do you do it? Didn't think the trionic control system would support a completely different APC or surely...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Got a '96 Manual Aero that has a habit of "bucking" under heavy acceleration. I've been following some guides on testing and cleaning the APC unit but I've got a few queries: I've completed a "blow test" and it appears to have passed (only blows back through the one pipe when using it as a...

    MY long standing problem with overboost seems to have been a sticking waste gate after all. Maybe I am too light footed. Anyway it no longer goes off the end of the scale, and instead makes a dumping noise it has never mad before when treated to a lead foot, quite audible, varaiable with...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Yesterday I went to look at an Aero, which I have put a deposit on to buy and will collect next weekend. I'm sure I'll find the answer with a bit more time but here's the problem: Drove the car, clearly only had base boost. Under the bonnet checks out as follows: Pipework OK Coil resistance...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Having overcome my various electrical probleesm at last I am back to the enduring one of fixing the Neo induced overboost, again (Aero 9000 with APC). Given my experience of and mistrust of computers in anything (see Toyota) I would like to try one of those pressure relief valves used as a...
  20. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I plan to have my B204E 9-3 remapped by Abbott at some stage, but note that for higher turbo outputs, I'm going to need an APC valve. Now, getting hold of one isn't a problem, but is it going to be ok for me to fit it, or will fitting it to the engine cause problems? Alternative is I buy it and...
