  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I had the Cylinder head machined, put everything back together, and the compression on the cold engine is only at 120 psi (8 bar) across all 4 cylinders, when the book says it should be at least 180 on a warm engine. Prior to dismantling, the head gasket was blown (not from overheating) and the...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all been awhile since my last post, I'm currently rebuilding my2001 9-5 aero engine after putting a hole in piston number 4, on advice from andy at the saab centre, i have bought a replacment b234r engine to combine the block with the b235r head, from what he has said its a much stronger...

    Ive picked up a b235r 2nd hand high flow intercooler, and planning on fitting it to my 2001 hpt(185) Does the intercooler from the b235r fit on as a direct replacement for my standard one? or are any modifications required as it looks like quite a large chunky unit!!
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 9-5 with a blown B235R engine Vin# 8th digit G. I'm having a very difficult time finding an egine to match. Can I use another B235R "g" engine from say a 2004-2007? I've found some of those on e-bay from salvage yards. Or can I adapt one from a E engine it's lesser hP but is that...
  9. Saab Parts / Accessories, FOR SALE and WANTED
    WANTED - I need a B235 engine for my 9-5 auto - there are a number of breakers that will sell me an engine, but they tend to be mega-bucks to buy (and I'm on a tight budget!!). I was planning on stripping the current engine (seized), but to my horror, it turns out that the original engine...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm a little confused. I've been happily putting full synthetic 5W-40 in my 9000 for the last five and a half years, but now I've got the 9-5, for which SAAB recommend 5W-30, there seem to be a lot of oils with that, or close, spec. on the market. Just to complicate matters, EuroCarParts' (not...

  12. Saabscene: Performance
    Can someone explain the differnce to me between the new B235R motor in the new 9-5 Aero with 250 hp and the B235R motor in the Viggen 230hp. Is the 250 only achieved with 'overboost function'? Or does the new B235 have an addition 'overboost' on top of the 250? Does the viggen have overboost...

    Hi everyone, Can anyone give any advice on tuning an autobox.I'm currently running a 2.0l aero with abbott ECU,intake pipe, delivery pipe, ITG filter,suspension set-up, rescue kit and motorsport disc's and pads. The idea is to swap to a 2.3[B235r]and let battle commence! I know i will have to...
  14. Saabscene: Performance
    Does the B235R run a returnless fuel system? Can a standard FPR be run on it? Any idea what stock injector sizing and type are?
  15. Saabscene: Performance
    Just curious if the B235R block, or another Saab block, has oil squirters for the bottoms of the pistons. If not I'm thinking of various ways one could go about retrofitting such things. It wouldn't be any use for a stock, or near stock, engine. But if any of the Saab blocks don't have them...
  16. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Finally finished installing the FMIC yesterday. Took all afternoon but only one skinned knuckle. Pretty easy... wonder why it took me so long to getting around to doing it... Laziness. In 90 degree weather, heat soak is less of a problem. Surprisingly less turbo lag. ... now on to fix the...
