BSR tuning for Saab 9-3 TTiD

Swedish tuners and makers of the easiest re-tune module going around, BSR, have added the new Saab TTiD to their list, to awesome effect.
In standard form, the Saab 9-3 TTiD produces 180hp and 400Nm. I drove one of these in Sweden last year at the 9-3 launch and it was pure joy with its dual sports exhaust growling like no other diesel I’d ever driven.
BSR tuneBSR’s new tune will boost the TTiD to 213hp and 450Nm. As you can see on the dyno chart (click to enlarge) the torque is all available down low where you need it.
This gives the TTiD driver a 20% reduction in getting up to overtaking speed, from 80km/h to 140km/h in just 9.1 seconds in fourth gear (vs 11.5 in standard tune). From 80km/h to 110km/h in third takes just 3.3 seconds.
If you’re unfamiliar with BSR’s stuff, I’ve written about them plenty of times (here, for example). The beauty of the BSR system is that there’s no need to remove your ECU as a part exchange or send it away for re-flashing. The BSR unit connects to your car via cable and downloads the tune information directly. When you want to return your car to it’s original tune, you just hook it up again and away you go.
BSR do tuning for a huge rage of vehicles and their units are available at their own website, or Saab tunes only at Elkparts. There’s a video at the Elkparts link to show how the whole system works.
