just fab up a pipe to go most of the way that has a fitting on it for the BOV hose. then find some hoses that can slightly change diameter to tighten down to the IC and turbo outlet.

ah i see. yeah i had my 1.8 TB on there too when i was runnin it on the 1.8 ECU. interesting to see that it allows the BOV to clear though. i may try putting the 1.8 TB back on to make the WRX IC fit, and because my 2.2 TB is leaking out of the O-Ring of the butterfly under boost :( im sure i can fi...

i know this is quite a bump, BUT i wanted to say congrats since i hadnt seen your finished product and i talked to you while you were working on it. now my question- how did you get that WRX intercooler to fit!? i cant fit mine! also, your still using the 1.8 throttle body, is that what allowed you ...

i noticed a loud hissing noise sounding like a leak after i intercooled my car.... turns out it was just the BPV leaking at idle like its supposed to. if you kink/plug the vacuum line going to the BPV does the sound go away? (the car wont want to run either) thats what it was on mine anyways, this i...

doh, im thinking about this wrong. using a different MAF, say an NA plastic cylinder one, can you tune that with an AFC? or what else could i do? ill look around some more, im sure the answer is out there.
thanks

ok thanks, so im maxxing the MAF :P the scantool showed it slowy increasing to like 4.9 and then at like 5750 in 4th @ 10psi it went to 5.1... so would bigger injectors and an SAFC help here? i could tone down what MAF voltage the ECU sees, so it wouldnt fuel as much except that with bigger injector...

hmm interesting, i just assumed that its a 5.4V maf or something, since i was getting 5.1V at high rpm in 4th at 10psi non intercooled, i thought the increased airflow would max it, can anyone else chip in their thoughts on this?

ya i am debating going EJ20G.. but im not sure yet, maybe just blow this one up first. i have a wrx pump in, but would like some bigger injectors and some kinda EM. im guessing that my MAF sensor is maxxed out, which just means it will start running lean up top, feel faster, and then blow up haha. m...

interesting, but doesnt that max out the MAF signal? and can fueling keep up with 15 pounds?

i was almost maxxing my MAF at 10psi non intercooled (5.1V), havent checked again yet.

yeah i would like to do more now since this turned out so great. how much boost do people usually put through the saab IC's with the vf-11? im gonna rig up a VRG FCD here soon. im running at just below boost cut, 12lb's. i would really like to get a wrx IC to work, might try that next, using the sto...

i dont believe it is necessary, since many have gone without moving it. but i see no reason not to move it, it gets very close to the intercooler in stock location, and it only costs 8 dollars an 15 minutes to lengthen the hoses to where i mounted it and not risk breaking off the nipples.

Saab IC install, very worthwhile

Got my saab intercooler and piping from blackbart today (thanks!) installed and put boost at 12lbs.... really amazing difference in power(WOW) and spool time(just a tad longer), it is really great and worth your while. i also relocated the coolant tank a lil while back, 5ft of 1/2" hose and 2ft...

what other vac line would work? not the purge one, usually not the compressor one though that would work.

the pressure exchange solenoid is the one on top right? i thought that was the name for the little black solenoid. or am i missing something...

Yes, you could use the spare MBC this way. You just need a tee and the restrictor. Since you're not using factory boost control, Maybe you could use the stock hose that goes between the boost control solenoid and the intake resonator. It has a 2mm restrictor in it already. reading through this whol...

would it throw a CEL or cause any damage to the solenoid if i simply removed the vac line for now untill i either get another resistor or find something that will disipate the heat better. Essentially your suggesting to place a resistor in place of the solenoid to keep the circuit closed with a res...

if unplugging it works, with an MBC can we simply remove the wastegate solenoid altogether? if the ECU isnt bothered by unplugging it than having it not hooked up wont effect anything.
