  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Following my 'have I bought a lemon' thread, it's booked in next week to have the GT17 replaced with a TD04, followed by a suitable noob remap. I've done the silicon vacuum lines already (although only about half as many as I expected to see on my 2004/5 9-5). I've ordered the turbo and fitting...

    Sigh... So I bought a 2004 9-5 2.3t Vector last weekend. Did a couple of 50 mile+ runs over that weekend and used it to do 10 miles each way to work this week, it seemed fine and pulled strongly with the boost gauge up to the yellow/red gap. One time I got a P1251,P1260,P1261 CEL but after a...

    I recently purchased a 97 Saab 900s Convertible non-tubo. It has 93000 miles and is in very nice shape except for an error code problem. No one that has owned this car been has been committed to regular upgrade maintenance. So I think this is a long standing problem. The dealer I bought from has...
