Our 1986-1993 900 and 1986-1989 9000 NEW Red Series Stage 4 APC system will fit all turbocharged models (including 1994 900 turbo convertible and all SPG models) for a dramatic, yet safe, increase of turbocharger boosting pressures which will provide engine performance of up to 50-60+ BHP!
Our new stage 4 program for the absolute maximum in safe turbocharger boost pressures and we have successfully sold hundreds of our APC upgrades to customers during our 20 years in business because of our reputation for quality, support, and by offering the most progressive yet safe APC enhancement available anywhere! SAAB introduced their APC(AUTOMATIC PERFORMANCE CONTROL) in the early 1980's as a safe method of controlling vehicle turbocharger boosting pressures with a safe, engine "Knock"(Detonation) protection and, due to the fact that this system was so effective, SAAB still employed APC systems for nearly 30 years of vehicle production! The system would adjust turbocharger boosting pressures while "Listening" for engine detonation wherein a lower charging pressure would be provided which will prevent serious mechanical failures. Although it seems that the manufacturer did some homework in designing this system, it's fault lies in the fact that it was designed for the average consumer, and not the enthusiast and upgrading with use of our APC control units will always the first step taken in the search for higher levels of engine output with the turbocharged SAAB engines!
Our SWEDISH DYNAMICS Red series APC upgrades will provide a subtantial gain in engine horsepower/torque increase without negating any of the knock safety parameters. We completely reprogram and employ over 20 component changes/updates to the APC pcb which will allow for turbocharger boost targets to come on quicker, go out further, and stay with you longer! Knock sensitivity is reformatted to be more capable of sensing detonation only…and not engine noise. Depending on fuel delivery and additional modifications, our Stage 4 Red Series APC has been able to generate an additional, yet safe, 50-60 BHP engine output(With a 20-24psi) on 900/9000 cars using this system…and we guarantee that you'll feel the difference over any APC control unit.
Be warned that there are many tweaked and so-called upgrade units (including the SAAB factory "Red" box which should not be confused with our own Red Series APC) as these offer a very modest performance gain over the original SAAB APC control unit. Our SWEDISH DYNAMICS Red Series APC control units will allow for 900/9000 turbocharger pressures to climb out to the latter part of the boost gauge red zone and full retain these pressures while retaining full knock sensitivity and safety! Our APC system will work progresively well on its own but will perform even better with our fuel updates, exhaust systems, intake kits, Magnecor ignition wires, bypass valve upgrades, etc. Our Red Series APC systems are sold on a exchange basis(Will Require Original APC Core Return Upon Installation Of Our Upgrade Within 30 Days From Purchase Date) and will simply install directly over the original SAAB APC control unit.
