I'll do it. You think you will always have your eye on the gauge tp make sure you are not overboosting? Also, what is telling you that your engine is not detonating/knocking? Thats right, nothing. For pure engine safety reasons, you want the APC to have complete control over the boost and swapping the hoses probably screws with the control somehow. You already mentioned it by saying it would raise the boost.Originally posted by chucktv:
[qb]A friend of mine said that a Saab tech in Europe told him you could swap the opposing hoses on the APC (87t) for increased boost but you needed to keep an eye on the guage. Is that too risky to try? [/qb][/b]
Indeed true.. if the engine is a 2.0... if it's a 2.3 Litre engine.. then the numbers are higher.T normally denotes Turbo equipped vehicle putting out around 175-185bhp
t normally denotes "Light pressure turbo" or LPT putting out around 145bhp
HOT denotes High Output Turbo, used on engines putting out 200bhp or more.
...no doubt with some exceptions and intricacies.
It says: LPG = Liquid Petroleum Gas but LPG actually means Liquified Petroleum Gas. I think we have gone a bit off-topic. I think I shall go for a walk in the park, now.
Ha.. they've missed out - EGT (Exhaust Gas Temperature) - My least favourite acronym.. and WOT (Wide open throttle) - my most favourite acronym.Out-anoraked again
Incidentally whilst looking for pages containing 'APC' I found a useful page on Saabnet
List of acronyms
Now I know what DICE means
Actually I think the topic has been oblitertated since there where far more replies to the anachronym question than the original.Originally posted by /john:
