    Hi guys, I'm looking to get 350+hp out of my saab. It's fully forged and I currently have a hybrid turbo which cannot generate any more power :( I've been told a bigger turbo and a custom remap will get it to the power I want but I haven't a clue what bigger turbo will fit. Any ideas on turbos...

    I am getting a 3" mandrel bent stainless down pipe with a high flow sport cat put in today. And depending on how much this guy will charge me I'll do the complete exhaust system. A couple years ago I went to 2 different shops that specialize in upgrading European cars into street beasts to get a...

    This morning i noticed a little puf of blue smoke after idling the car for a while. Since I've been missing some oil lately I recon that the Turbo is starting to go. HAs anyone here used a bigger turbo on a 9k Aero (Bubbles, BillJ, And Ylee Coyote I suspect) And can they tell me which turbo they...

I got a 2.3L N/A (DAMN NO TURBO?). But thats ok with me, I want a big mouth(THROTTLE BODY) to suck in the air im driving up against...

    It probably had more to do with the previous year's release of the Saab 9-5, but in 1998 Saab decided that the 900 should be called the 9-3. I was pondering my first Saab purchase at the time and didn't really know much about the current cars, hence this will seem a little sketchy. Right or...

    I just got word through from Jan-Willem Vester at SaabUSA that they've acquired a new vehicle for addition to the GM Heritage collection. From his email: <blockquote>Good news -- we finally have a classic Saab 900 Turbo 5-door in the collection! It's just that the car comes without the...

    I have had my 2.0 eco tuned from abbott racing. New injectors and ecu remap. I do have a aero intake pipe hanging around and are tempted to fit it. Is it worth it, do they make any difference or will it cock anything up Cheers Michael

    This may be a stupid question but what benefits would fitting an aero intake pipe inreplace of the smaller one found on the 2.0 eco?

    Hi all I just got my 9000 aero back from having some major work done to it.This included the gearbox that went on me. Whilst my gearbox was out I decided to have an Abbott LSD put in place, to help ease off the tcs when entering and exiting roundabouts and fast bends.I also had a set of 17"...

    Has anyone put a bigger turbo on their 900 besides the viggen turbo. I have been looking on cheapturbos.com and they have a nice kit but; like always, it is probably not as easy to upgrade as it seems. I know you have to re-map the computer etc. etc. but I am just wondering if any of you guys...

    I need some new tyres today. Mine's an Anniversary, with the 15" Anniversary wheels. I've currently got 195/65/R15. Will I see any difference from increasing the tyre size? And to what? The back of the handbook suggest the next size is 205/60, but Newbury Saab have just said they'd recommend...

    Last summer, I took quite a few pictures when I changed the motors and suspensions on my two 9000's. I finally took the time to document the procedure I used for installing the rear suspension on my Aero, plus some other pictures I thought some of you might be interested in. Just click on...

    Hi! I'm again in need of great wisdom. Earlier I was thinking of changing the turbo and/or adding a intercooler, but I found out that it's cheaper and easier to get the ECU -unit reprogrammed. At the moment I would be satisfied with the about 200hp, that the chip programmer claims to achieve...
