  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm happy with the general power output of my car, except when starting from standstill...which is dangerously slow (as covered elsewhere). I was thinking of trying the software re-flashing (there's one offered by Neo Bros for £300+), which changes the car from 150bhp to 180bhp...effectively...

    Hi all. So I'm thinking bout increasing the power output, only getting about 25mpg, so figure I might as well crank things up a bit. Completely standard at mo so bout 150bhp I understand. Was told you could push up to 250 without modifying crank and flywheel etc, if that's the case, can anyone...

  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello all, I've not been on for a while because my 2.0LPT 1998 has been so good to me. Recently I've noticed a slight increase in engine noise when accelerating . It happens about 2-3k RPM or if I'm holding it open on an upill climb. It stops above 3k RPM and isn't always constant. At first I...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I have a 9-5 3.0L V6 TID and I think there's a problem. Driving along the motorway for about an hour I noticed a loss of power when I tried to overtake another car, no power just very slow acceleration. Also, when coming off the motorway and stopping at the traffic lights the revs seemed...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have recently read in a thread that you can easily without much cost increase the bhp on my 2003 2.2 tid , but they did not say how. Has anyone had experience of this? if so what did you do? regards

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, just found a conversation on another forum about manually increasing using the wastegate rod. Is this correct and if so, how do ya do it? And how much can you increase it?

    Thinking of using forged pistons in my rebuild, so if im purchasing new pistons, are there any oversized ones available for a B235R ? i know i can get the bores bored out at a reasonable cost, so seems silly if i can get oversized pistons in the process. whats the std size of viggen piston ...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have just fitted a CR2 tuning chip to my 3.0 Tid. The car is quicker but if I increase the power by using the pin jumper it goes even faster but stutters at about 4k rpm., do you think I am hitting boost cut off and if I am is there a way of increasing it? here is a link to the companies...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Guy's I raise this question in response to one raised by Tonker and his 2.2 TiD. I have been looking into fitting an upgrade magic box that fits betwen the ECU and the Comon Rail increasing both power and fuel economy, as this seems to be the most popular way of doing this. However, one of...

    This is on my feed reader. It’s from Automotive News, which I don’t have a paid subscription for, but hopefully one of the usual suspects will come up trumps and give us an insight as to what’s going on with the rest of the story. <blockquote>Saab’s advertising budget this year is slightly...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi there, it was quite easy with 900s - a separate sensor and a screwdriver. In my 9000 2.3T `93 Jetronic (DI/APC) it doesn`t seem that simple. Any ideas how to do it to prevent the car from fuel cutting out by higher boost?
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have been reading a lot on this forum about adding intercoolers to 9000s. I don't understand how it gives more power. Is it water or oil or air that is cooled? Are there any mechanical tuning things that can give more power without adding anything to the car, a 9000 B202S, and without...
  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My '97 2.3 LPT currently runs standard 195/65 R15 tyres and as need to replace them soon I was considering going for a slightly wider tyre used as on the 2.3 FPT (205/60 R15). Has anyone done this and if so did it improve traction and cornering much? Any adverse affects such as decreased...
