Subject: 1985 900 Turbo - APC question


Hello, I have a perfectly running 1985 Turbo, except I'm only getting base boost (about 1/3 into the yellow on the gauge). My local indie mechanic who's very heavily used and highly regarded in these parts, says the APC needs to be "rewired," and said it would cost about $65. This was simply jotted onto a work order for a different repair, and I haven't yet asked for specifics. Anyway, I'm thinking this might be one of the DIY things I can tackle, and I try to do anything possible myself (which isn't much...:)). I posted this on Saabnet, but nobody has said much about the APC unit. Can any of you C900 gurus give an indication of what rewiring the APC would entail, and how complicated the procedure might be? With the engine so strong, and the body pretty decent, it's a shame not to get all that the car can offer. Or maybe I should just install another APC? As for the notorious 1985 wiring issues, almost all electronics work, except power central locking, heated seats and power mirrors. btw, I'm at 246K miles...coming up on a quarter million! It's the one in the top two pix: http://the_urchin.home.comcast.net/photos/saab.html Thanks for any assistance. -jw
