Took the Carly for a rolling road run with a group of fellow Alfisti, I'd taken my 156 V6 last year and since I've done no modifications to it (it'd had a major belts and braces service just before it's run), I'd thought I'd take the Carlsson instead.
As last year there were quite a few...
Had a fun day putting our Saabs on the dyno here in Melbourne Australia on Saturday 1 August at Swinburne Tafe Automotive School. The guys running the day were really impressed with the numbers put down of the Saabs – they didn't expect the numbers we ran at all!
We had 9 cars run on the dyno...

180psi 185psi 170psi 200psi
I did this on a warm engine and throttle open and cranked the engine until the reading reached its max, it...

I can play cd,s faultlessly, but as soon as i put the jackplug in, i loose all audio,
however if i insert the plug halfway, i...

My car has a myriad of problems. I am trying to test various sensors so I know which ones are fine and which ones need more investigation. I have a Mitchell WIS manual that gives some great detail on how to test pretty much all the sensors I care about in the engine compartment.
I am having...
There were a couple of interesting outcomes from the Saab 900 poll today. For me as a blogger, the fact that there were only 100 respondents (less than third of the usual amount) was interesting, but that’s a side issue.
The main outcome was that 50% of respondents have either never owned or...
The vote is in. With nearly 500 votes counted, the winner has been decided.
Saab - be advised - you’re going to need some more black paint. Not only is there growing demand for people to buy remakes of UrSaab in the future, but the most popular color for the 2008 Saab 9-3 is Jet Black...
The comments to the post about a possible V8 for the Saab 9-5 were brilliant, save for one rant that I don’t think was called for and was out of place here. Regardless, there’s a lot of good thoughts there.
FWIW, some ongoing Djup Strupery leads me to believe that due to interest from the US...

Finally got a chance to put my car on the "local" dyno, now I was only going for a base reading as a bench mark before I change the down pipe & remove the CAT, i,m laughing because I had memory,s of the high tech set up down at Dalgety Bay a few weeks ago, not quite the same in Huntly!, what we...
Did a compression test as part of an ongoing investigation into an uneven running problem.
Already put in new plugs and substituted the DI.
Just wondered if these are typical of a B234R?

I have just done a 200mile round trip stint from Inverness to Perth. Cruise was set at 60mph with no hold ups or brake applications.
The Trip Computer (which was reset at the start of the journey) brought back 41.1mpg outbound, 40.9 inbound.
Remarkable really. Perhaps a little too good?
I was well chuffed with the results from a session on the Rolling Road yesterday, the 9000 3.0 V6 puts out 210bhp as standard, but with some mods to the inlet manifold by oversizing the two throttle bodies and fitting bigger throttle disc's, changed the cams and cleaning everything out and...
