    Hi Guys, Just about prepped for changing my front discs and pads hopefully this weekend if the weather is decent.

  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    What are the tell tail signs of engine sludge? I purchased a one owner, beautiful black 2002 Saab 9-3 SE with the vin engine letter K; I hear the engine is not as successful as its predecessors....??? So it is unlike my older Saabs I have owned, it shoots a small amount of smoke, and has a...

  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, i'm in the process of having the engine from my saab 9-5 2002 2.0t rebuilt and it needs new pistons. Could anyone tell me where to get them, cheapest possible, as no one seems to have them. If I can't find cheap enough new ones, would used ones fitted with new rings work?
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've got a 9000 Aero crankshaft here and a set of pistons and conrods from a 9-5 Aero. Question is, can I use them together? I have used a 9000 crankshaft together with 9000 pistons and conrods in a 9-5 and know that this works fine. But can I mix B234 and B235 parts? Someone told me that the...
  11. Saabscene: Performance
    I still have a second set of pistons and conrods for my 9000 Aero here that for a while now I've been itching to put into the car. The pieces have been lightened, shot peened and fine weighed. First question: Do you think there will be a noticeable improvement in pick-up? If I go ahead with...

Please if anyboby knows anywhere they are sold or even if you know of someone who has used them fitted on their car please...
  13. Saabscene: Performance
    On the 'other' bb? There was an interesting thread about B235 pistons. It certainly adds to the 'conspiracy' theories running about these days My favorite is that the B234 was the more over designed motor, and once the GM bean-counters' ethic took hold, more 'practical' pistons would be...
  14. Saabscene: Performance
    Just curious if the B235R block, or another Saab block, has oil squirters for the bottoms of the pistons. If not I'm thinking of various ways one could go about retrofitting such things. It wouldn't be any use for a stock, or near stock, engine. But if any of the Saab blocks don't have them...
  15. Saabscene: Performance
    Hi, for those who did not follow my "how much oil" thread: My Viggen uses excessive amounts of oil. Today, we did a "pressure loss test" (not a compression test), and all 4 cylinders proved to be faulty: Pressure loss was 32%-22%-38%-26%, 20% being the tolreance. On the third cylinder, we...
