I could have embarrassed my "bona fides" much more simply. And, I am almost too embarrassed to ask but exactly what is a Newton in kilos or grams. After that I can convert to pound feet and at say 3000 rpm see what the turbo overboast is. Is the power of a stock Areo with HOT at its max. or can it be increased? And, how much and do you sacrifice elsewhere. Thanks for the information. Where are you.Swede? Do you work for/with Saab or are you an automotive engineer/buff? Thanks again, Malcolm
