"Tune up" my Aero?

Hello everyone :hello: ,
 
I have a "tune up" project (modest) for my newly acquired Aero 9.3 190 TTid automatic. Circa 2008.  
Does anyone have experience, information, success story, etc with the modifications I am considering: intake, cooling, reprogramming kit (Maptun, Hirsch...) for this type of Saab?
Also, is there a garage or a contact that might help me with this project? I'm living in the south of Paris, Vallée de Chevreuse.
 
My previous experience with saabs is limited to owning a 9.5 Vector V6 TiD which was a real "monster" on the highway but quite frankly lacked the "punch" I'd like to have when the kid(s) in the red beemer(s) at the traffic light look(s) over and sneers. I'd like to show them what Saab can do for that smirk.
 
I've included a few pix of my new beauty. A superbe example of what Saab is capable of manufacturing!
 
Long life to Saab  :bounce:

you can also choose steinbauer

really good too !!!
 
then for the intake, try first a good air filter like KN or JR  (not direct air intake!!!!) and you can also try to change the location of the pipe that goes to the air box, and put it in front of the radiator to have cooler air

Thanks for the tips mathz. I was beginning to think Saab owner didn't speak english on this forum/site.
I'll look and what steinbauer does. Do you have anything on them: products, quality, testimonials from happy/unhappy clients, etc...
 
I'll have afor KN and JR
 
How do I go about trying to "change the location of the pipe that goes to the air box, and put it in front of the radiator to have cooler air" as you mention?

Sorry but that last message got off without a final check!  
2 Rectifications are in order:  
1- I was beginning to think Saab owners didn't speak english on this forum/site.  
2- I'll have a look at KN and JR.

for steinbauer, it's often stated as a really good tuning box (not only for saab)  
 
for the cooler air, I know someone did it somewhere here :D I'll check that next week cause my exam are coming fast...

mathz, when you get the infos on the intercooler thing let me know.
 
Also, K & N has filters of course but they don't have direct intakes or boxes either for the Aero 9.3 TTiD 1.9. I spoke with a distributer yesterday at Urban Racing (45240). He was helpful. A filter for my ride sells for:93euros+shipping. No stock however. A 10 day delay.
I left a message at steinbauer. No response, yet.  
And, if you're looking for a forum/website for tuned cars and with a special user forum foe Saabs look at: Torque Cars.com. The site is 100% in english. The information is rich and the Saabs are well represented there. Check it out.

OK mathz, fiinish up with your exams. Good luck there.  
I'm not in a hurry for the intercooler project. I'm still looking for information on the "intake" project.
 
Have you looked at the www.torquecars.com website?

Hey Rim,
 
welcome on board !
I'm supposed to look after this section of our forum , but a bit out of the tracks since a month due to an hip prothesis rebuilding.
Thanx to Mathz to taking care of you, especially because I haven't so much knowledge about the diesels tuning .
Where are you from ? ( I mean by birth )
 
Alan

Hi Rim,
 
where in the USA , it's so big ? :lol:  
I'm living in Broceliande forest, Britanny ( around 50 kms from Rennes ).
We organize here a SAAB & Volvo meeting, 2012 will be the 14 th & 15 th of July.
I can drive now but still under kinesitherapy for a month.
I'm tuning my 9000 ( actually stage 4 ) with a big holset turbo, but you know tuning of diesel is far different.
I will ask friends tuners about your reprogramming.
Have you any experience about it ?
 
Alan

Hi Alan  :hello:  
How about the East coast: Philadelphia, PA? Have you been to the USA? yep yep it is very big.
 
Yes, I know about the Saab/Volvo meeting out there where you live. If I'm in France and the weekend is open I'll try and make it.  
I attended the Saab meeting at Rambouillet in June 2011 with my 9.5 Vector 3.0 V6 TiD. I was glad to have participated and to have met the faces on the pseudos! I was not in France for the follow up Saab meeting in September though. Too bad.
 
A 9000 in Stage 4! I'm impressed. Have you got pics to show? I'm sure you do!  
 
I have no Saab tuning experience. I just got my Aero which replaced the 9.5 Vector V6 3.0 I crashed in August 2011. I put pictures and the story in the 9.5 forum if you're interested.
  I have experience with simple combustion engines: VW 1600, Alfa Romeo, lawn mower... I have no turbo or diesel experience.  
I have the interest, the tools and a comfortable place to work. I also have some time to dedicate to this project.
 
The project: I am interested in: finding and installing an intake pipe and filter. I've seen the BSR  Opti Air Flow intake and it looks simple enough to install. I need to know if anyone has installed this product on their Saab 9.3 1.9 TTiD, etc... If this is not feasible, I'll install a simple K & N pan filter and move on. I prefer the intake however. I want the super Saab sound!!!
 
The 2nd "tune" is to perhaps install (or have installed) an intercooler system. So, I need to have information on this type of a modification to this engine.  
Then if all goes as planned, I'll look at a reprogramming modification. I'm looking at the reprogramming information on the web and in the forums. There is a lot of data out there. Can someone help me with this?
 
Please ask your tuning buddies about these modifications and let me know what they think, suggest, etc...
 
Good to see you're able to drive your 9000!

Hi Alan  :hello:  
 
Thanks for the update. I'll have a look at the links and see what they say.
 
By the way, I had the brake calipers painted red  :D  and had the body detailed last week on my Saab.  
I changed my avatar with a recent  photo. Tell me what you think?
 
Also, I'm waiting for the delivery of a Hirsch four piece grill kit which will set me up for the Spring weather and the beauty contests.
