Before I got mine chipped my local saab guy called me to tell me that Saab had reduced the cost, when we looked into it the ecu was for LPT to bring them up to full turbo bhp I think the increase was 25 bhp and the cost was under £200 Im 99% sure .....If AYM comes on ask him I think he knows about it, failing that I will try and find out about it on Monday for you

I wish the ECU upgrade for the 9-5 was that cheap there still around £1000 for mine from Saab,so if you can get it for £200 go for it well worth it.And if you do I won't be jealous honest

You should be able to knock that up 35 bhp without to much trouble..if I cannot find any info on the puter I will call the garage on monday

I don't know anything about LPT and Manual boost controllers, I have had one fitted to my Carlsson for a good while, I only ever used Super Unleaded and now Optimax and its been fine (up to now)the difference is dramatic for thirty quid.

This ecu was offer cheap about 12 months ago...its not a recent thing, lots of others places will burn you a chip Zeppelin at a lot less than Abbott,its up to you, Abbott is tried and trusted for saabs...but who burns them for abbott?A lot of other supplies have been in the game longer or as long as Abbott.
