  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    HELP! I cannot find anywhere to ask a question, but this thread might be able to direct me. My SAAB radio died and I replaced it with a Pioneer unit, installed by a specialist. All of the audio warning sounds do not now work. Is there any fix to this?

    Hi Guys, I have just installed a Chinese 2Din Android head unit but it frequently reboots with the Antenna plugged in, strangely rock solid if I don't plug the antenna in but of course I don't then have radio. I have got the antenna powered from the stereo and am using a Fakra adapter which...

    Hello, So I have it mostly installed now, hoorah! And it's gone quite well, as a bonus the top vent is now much easier to get in and out for future work. So a couple problems, one the volume is way too high. I think this is because I'm putting an amplified speaker level output to the line...

    Hey guys, I just installed a used throttle body I got off ebay for $60 bucks which was advertised as working. See the following item description: http://www.ebay.com/itm/271448270262?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 Here are the pictures of the install and a video of the...

    I would like to know how I can physically confirm Bluetooth is fitted to a 2008 9-3 TTiD Aero (where is the UHP), and if not is the wiring and mic etc in place or do I have to buy a kit. I cant seem to find the option to connect in the SID menu, does anyone have the exact instructions. I have...

    Just installed the VTune Stage 0 on my TX. Only been out for a couple of runs but pick up and mid range unsurprisingly are massively improved. Even threw a traction warning earlier which I've never seen previously. Really simple to install and definitely worth every penny :) One thing i did see...

    Hello, I have just got my first Saab. (although they have been in the family for years) I have got the Saab 9-5 Estate 2006 plate. I wanted to improve the stereo and really like the JVC KW-AVX740. http://www.jvclatest.co.uk/product/kw-avx740.php I have been told this can be installed but...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hey Guys, I ordered and installed a universal stripe kit off ebay. I decided to go with a silver stripe on my white car. I considered black, but wanted to do something a little different. Install took a couple hours, I'd never laid a vinyl stripe down on a car before. It took a spray bottle of...

  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Installed and set up my MBC valve today... Set the boost to about 1 bar peak so not to run to high not having APC to protect (couldn't do anymore than that if I wanted to anyway as I dropped my boost guage out the door and broke it!! ) The one thing that you really notice is 1st gear. Boost...

    From the good advice from my other thread 'Nordic experiences anyone?' It confirmed my decision to go Nordic. After a bit of a flap about the 3.5 bar FPR (The one sent was a modified 3.0 bar - modified by 'crushing' the top of the FPR to increase spring load - apparently Nordic have got this...

    I installed the thermocoupler in the exhaust manifold. I was wondering if any other tuners out there are monitoring their EGTs so we can compare measurements. This is what I have found so far: idle: 950-1000 deg F cruise set at 65 Mph: 1200 deg F cruise set at 75 Mph: 1400 deg F WOT pull: temp...

    on my Hirsch custom programmed 1999 9-3. Initial impression was of a good improvement in power. I wanted to do a dyno run before installing it but, the shop didn't have time for me for a few weeks. I was really itching to get it installed so in it went without the dyno run. My previous speed...

    Here are the latest updates. Of course the intake pipe have to be polished to show finish, but this gives you a look at them -

    Hi I fitted today on my aero the Abbott IC. It's not very cheap but it's worth the money. Very good quality, fits exactly and very nice with no need of additional mods. Now i have to dyno the car again and see the if there is any difference . Here is a picture of the stock one...
