Definitely needs to be inspected and adjusted. Go to the www.saabnet.com faq on APC and boost for a good read in addition, the Townsend site has very good information as well. http://216.78.172.244/turbo_folder/turbo_apc_docs.htm for a primer on Turbo and APC, this site which tells how to put an APC on a brick has a good write-up. http://www.users.qwest.net/~qed/volvoapc/index.html Regards, KeithG "Spinner" <spencer.suttonnopsamorld.com> wrote in message news:m0Rp7.9963$1V3.1072145nopsam2-win.server.ntlworld.com... > Under acceleration.. my boost level only goes half way into the yellow, and > that's it.. no more..
