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...

Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
Had my Aero on the rollers yesterday but they had trouble getting it to run properly as it kept shutting the turbo down at 3780rpm :confused:
They managed to get a figure of 226bhp (191 at the wheels) and 301 lb/ft but obviously the revs had not reached the correct point to get a true figure...
4Car in the UK have also published their writeup, with special mention for the TTiD.
Aftonbladet seem to have something on offer too, but it looks like it's subscriber only, which is freaking rediculous if you ask me. Collin's known for his Ovlov preferences but why make your...

Well i was happy with the result of the R/R day today, the £72 900 t8 did not blow up. which was a bonus, i was more than a little afraid that with it laying for 3 years it might self destruct, I may have got the wooden spoon but it is only 10bhp and 12lb torque down on it's figures when new and...
Now that my LPT is on steroids (Abbotts ECU and uprated turbo), I would like to what the numbers are.
Anyone know of a rolling road day in the SE/SW of London? Or recommendations for someone who can sort me out?

My 9000 Aero (with Speedparts Stg3) had its first visit to a rolling road yesterday.
Results (measured at wheel) were 243bhp which seems about right, I guess this would be 280 ish at flywheel. Torque was a high 427nm (315lbft) - If this scales in the same manner as the bhp that would make...
I am planning to take my 9000 Aero with Speedparts Stg3 on a rolling road.
The car seems to be running fine, but I want to check all is ok under high load and am interested to see how much power it has.
Is there anything I should look out for? I can't imagine it is any more stressful than a...
