  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I am the new owner of an old 1999 Saab 9-3 convertible. I read the owners manual but my Saab did not. Except for the drivers-side rear window, the windows go down. When I release the top and press the roof button, the mechanism in the rear makes a noise indicating some very short movement but...

  3. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After asking in the 9-3 section and getting no response, I thought I'd ask here with some 9000 owners who may have the knowledge to help, as I understand the same mod is possible on a 9000, and I suspect more of you have done it given the strength of the last 'true' Saab. Basically, I've...

    So, I converted to FPT using an APC valve and a FPT ECU. VSS has been coded to my car by a friendly Indy and everything runs well. No problems. Thing is, it doesn't seem as quick as I had expected. The APC valve, I'm certain is connected correctly - C to the turbocharger (small spigot on the...

    Hi everyone, I do very low mileage at the moment, but in a few months Ill be changing job and my mileage will be going up to around 20k a year. The obvious solution is to sell the saab gm900T and buy a diesel (passat, a4 etc). The alternative I have thought of is converting the saab to lpg...

    The Mrs's 1996 N plate 9K 2.0 LPT Hirsch Stage 1 clutch is on the verge of death. I have been told on here to get it changed to a 2.3 clutch as they last longer and can handle the 215 BHP better and she's talking about having it changed in the next few weeks, I'm looking at getting everything...

    Enjoying a My97 9000CSE Auto Maptun Stage 3+, the tranny is on the way to go. I think of further performance improvement(s) but the tranny is no more reliable. The question is; Is this conversion an easy replacement process? I have found a MY96 2.0 box, would it fit or which other one I should...
