I’m not the only Viggen owner here in Oz looking to get a little bit more out of his car!
Many of you know that I have a mate in Sydney, Richo, who has a Viggen as well. He’s a few steps ahead of me in terms of getting his Viggen up to the desired level, and here’s what he got in the mail today.
That’s a BSR PPC unit to reprogram his ECU and lift his horsepower and torque ratings, as well as a Forge BOV replacement unit and some Powerflex bushes (for the steering rack, I believe). All of which were purchased from Elkparts.
Note, Richo previously tried an atmospheric unit for the BOV on the recommendation of a mechanic at a Saab dealership and it didn’t produce the desired results. Yet another reason why I tend to wonder a little about the technicians that aren’t specifically trained on Saabs – and the big problem is you don’t generally know when you put your car in which ones are and which ones aren’t trained on Saabs.
But I digress.
It’ll be mucho interesting to see how this upgrade turns out. Richo’s planning on shooting some before and after film, so we’ll all get to see the results.
Little did he know, but the bike had the wrong VIN#
