    Smile Vectra-C.com --- Saabcentral.com alliance

    WTF?! You may ask... But think about it.

    I am a saab 93 sport saloon owner and belong to both forums. The reason being that as I'm sure some of you already know, is the 2003+ saab 93's and Vectra-C's are both based on the GM Epsilon platform/chasis and share engine, suspention and drivetrain with only minor differences. As you can see it is beneficial to both to share thoughts and modifications between the two forums. I have already benifited from reading posts from Vectra-C for tips and mods and hope highlighting this link/alliance between the forums and the cars themselves will be of use to otheres now and in the future. I have access to the Saab WIS and EPC if anyone needs info from them.

    Yep, as the engine in the 2.0T is a Saab derived engine, when I went looking for tuning options for it I couldn't find anything from the usual Vx tuners so I went hunting on Saab forums and that's how I came across BSR - and the rest as they say is history with loads of guys on here now having the BSR kit.

    As we've seen in another thread guys have benefited from Saab dealers selling off brake kits - straight swap for the owners on here.

    Hmm, doubt it. I know the BSR ones for Saabs aren't, it has to be a version for the Vx. Whilst the same engines in the 2.0T and 9-3SS there are some differences and the maps will be adjusted for that.

    Mine's a 2.0T (Z20NET) which is what I was referring to. Not sure about the 1.9 but I still wouldn't think a Hirsch remap would drop straight into a Vx. I'm sure there would be differences that would stop it from mapping.

    I'm a member on Saabcentral and Saabscene but both are nowhere near as good or as informative as this site
    As for the Hirsch kit, i don't think the ecu or a lot of the electrics are shared between the 2 cars. The engines and running gear are basically the same but the rest is totally different.
    I do know my Saab 9-3 Aero was around 266bhp with the BSR remap though

    I think saabcentral is brilliant. It's full of really helpful info and people. I don't think much of saabscene. The electronics are the main difference between the vehicles but I'm pretty sure the gm ecu is the same with just a taylored map. Is there any decent vectra 1.9CDTi mods like dual stainless exhausts or short shifters or anything I could fit to my car?

    Exhausts are best left to specialist fitters m8. Powerflow etc will make a custom cat back stainless system for around £350-£400
