  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, So the clutch has started slipping in my 2008 9-3 Turbo X XWD after 66k miles. I get the feeling that a lot of the components for the 280BHP version were not up to the task of the performance model (for example, the car is on its 3rd steering pump, I think due to the load of the wider...

    Have many people tuned the saab 150bhp 1.9 diesel engines? What would be the first suggested step? A remap? Any bolt on parts that'd be suggested to aid the map results?

So any suggestion and if possible a link where I can buy the things I need to connect. My first project...

    Hi has anyone fitted one of these to a TTiD 9-3? Thinking of doing this or a remap, this being the cheaper oftion and can be removed easily. Appears to read well and the company seem OK. thanks Paul

    Hi guys hope someone can shed some light on this. I'm a newby to all this but here goes. I have a Saab 93 2.2 TID 2004. Recently had some starting problems and it turned out to be the alternator.

    I have for sale a steinbauer tuning box for a 2.2 125bhp TiD Saab 9-3. I had this box running for 5 years in my old 9-3 before it was written off in a accident a couple of months ago. The official figures say it takes bhp from 125bhp too...

  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    seen these on ebay and it got me thinking, they seem reasonably priced and the gains are good (they have to be true gains, ebay wouldnt let them advertise if they wernt). I know they arent as good or as thorough as a remap but its a lot cheaper. Im getting my software update next week so...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm considering having my DPF and EGR mapped out of my TTID wagon, Avon tuning will do it for 399 which seems ok? Anyone had this done in Bristol? Also of those that have had it done has anyone had any issues come MOT time (the old recurring question!) Thanks

    Hi all, Just wondering if any saab 1.9 TID owners have tried adding a tuning box and any experiences/advice to offer here. They are on e-bay for £60- £85 a go....seems too good to be true, DIY fitted in ten minutes and 30-40% bhp gain. Any advice, even if it`s STAY AWAY is welcome. Thanks Jim
