    Hi Folks Been a while since I have posted - mainly because my 9000 CSE 2.3t has been performing brilliantly. But having racked up greater mileage over the last couple months, it looks like I need to get a bit of work done before its MOT at the end of the month - but more of that in...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Can someone tell me for certain if the 2.3 LPT and FPT 9000's (NON AERO) use the T25 Turbo. Someone said they use a T3 fitment but i was under the impression it was a T25 and not a T3. Also if these models do use a T25 what is the normal A/R figure on both the exhaust housing and the outlet...
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)

As well as my 96 Aero (manual) my wife runs a 97 1.8 MX5 to which i fitted a DIY Turbo and intercooler. The results are excellent but i have always been aware that the Turbo on the Mazda is one of...

  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, My 94 9000 LPT CSE gear box is making funny noises, similar to something catchy as it goes round and speeds up. The car has only just done 72k. However, I needed a new (rebuilt)box at 38,000. This was done at the best auto box centre in the S.East (or so Im told) However after 14,000 It...

  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all The APC on my MY93 Aero has failed again, which suggests that the problem lies somewhere other than the valve. Does anyone has any suggestions as to what the problem might be? But...in the meantime, I’m thinking about getting around the nasty ‘shut-down jolts’ by fitting a manual BPCV...
