  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    ... to my 1992 FPT. I tried to fit my Carlsson bodykit on Monday and came pretty unstuck. Well actually my rear bumper is very stuck as it's screwed to a bracket on the lower part of the solid bumper ... by torx screws, all of which are rotted to hell. So to remove the bumper I'm probably...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I hope this is a straightforward question, but bear with me! I have a 1990 2.0 9000T16 SE, and have just been offered a Carlsson red DI/APC ECU with the following part numbers: 8660334 137007407 Date: 1988-10-18 First of all, i assume that with this being the earlier box, that it is the...

    My 1990 9000 carlsson engine(2litre) has a part I cannot identify. It is a small plastic block with two vaccuum lines screwed into intake manifold between #2and#3 cylinder. One of the lines has a short pipe and then is blanked off. The other goes to the inlet at throttle plate area. I could not...

    I just bought my second Saab a 1990 2.0 Carlsson 9000 in black with a hint of rust, well more than a hint. The right hand rear corner is rotten so having to rebuild the whole section. The rest of the car is in great nick. Is it common for this to happen? Still other than that it's a great car...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Does anyone know the P/N's for the wheel arch extension fittings? The kit I have is from an '89 car and in this case the wheel arch extenders are fitted to the panel by an L-shaped bracket that is riveted to the moulding? I know this from having seen these fitted to a 1990 CD Carlsson. The...

    My Carlsson has a B234L engine. Can anyone tell me what mods were made to the B234R engine to give it 225bhp?
  7. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I'm a new member today. I'm slowly learning about the car I have while fixing it after a Merc jeep swiped the front off. I'm beginning to find that it's a pretty unusual version. That's making finding the bumper cover challenging, but that's my current project! Anyway, meantime, I have...
  8. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Just been idlely surfing and came across this add that purports to be a special order 900 Carlsson in LeMans Blue with stone-wash leather, one lady owner and only 54k miles from new...... Too good to be true....? Blue Carlsson?
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've just got a full Carlsson bodykit from a 1990 9000, it has now just occured to me that my 9000 is a year newer and has the CD style front. Is it still possible to fit the Carly front bumper/spoiler to mine. If so is it an easy swap or will some 'bodge' be required. The whole lot will need...

    Before I order a load of bits - and these, are mine 18mm - I seem to recall only the Aero is 19mm - am I correct?
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    hey guys, I'm in the middle of the usual spring cleaning frenzy and looking to do a respray on the trusty Carlsson 9000. And one of my biggest problems is the stripes and Carlsson logo. Does anyone know of a dealer or supplier where I can lay my hands on a new set of red stripes? Thanks again...

    How far up should it go, when running to it's full potential, standard state of tune like? Think mine just clears the red/yellow when initially boosting, then it settles down into the mixed section again.
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    May need to sell it, advice appreciated. For age very very good bodywork (kinda slate met grey, I think called patana grey) 140k, lots and lots of history. Very good interior - 1 biggish mark on passenger seat (5p coin size) rest pretty good for age/mileage new wastegate actuator very well...

  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello again, As per my previous post, leading up to purchasing my car I have a couple of things which I need advice on. 1. It doesn't make much boost, the needle only moves slightly around in the yellow section of the guage, am I right in thinking it should get up near the red? 2. The...
