Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Hello Magalar,

A little bit more background, I purchased the RDCM from a VOLVO/SAAB seller on eBay for relatively cheap, seller claimed it was new, looks new, even came with its own pump, might be a dud? I can't SPS it. I thought of toying with SPS and the RDCM from the NON eLSD diff but I'm afraid I'll brick it.

I am a bit relieved to hear it's all the same. I tried flashing a couple of T8 BIN files but I still can't sort this out. I went into this thinking it may not work but the fact that it's mounted and everything else checks out has me convinced this SHOULD work. This is my 5th 9-3, first non-Aero model, so I'm fairly experienced with it but it's my first XWD so this has been a bit of a journey in my backyard.

Most of the SaabCentral folks just say I'm wasting my time with no input or that no one has tried it so I'm out of resources, I live in LA and spoke to Two Guys From Sweden. They told me, at least in theory I have everything I need but that it's a sensitive system that may require SPS but I can't even communicate with the RDCM, to begin with, so I'm at a loss.
