  12. Perhaps a daft question...

    Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)

    Saabscene: Performance
    Does anyone know what the differences are between the 02-05MY 9-5 aero and the 06 onwards MY 9-5 aero that allows the extra 10bhp? I only ask because if you then tweak it up via Hirsch then the 05 only goes up to 280bhp, but the 06 can reach 300. The only difference to the kits is a fuel...
