    Hello SaabScene people, my first post. I've been searching round the web looking for pictures of the B207L (Z20NET) with Samco Silicone hoses fitted but can I find any, Nope. My first option, join a great Saab forum and ask for pictures. So please post away either both pictures of the kit...

    Hi, I can find a few places selling silicone cooling system hoses for TURBO classic 900 models but I can't track down anywhere selling the same for my NON TURBO 2L 16v injection, 1993 classic 900 convertible. Blue hoses would be nice :) . I can source blue silicone vacuum hoses easily enough...

    Does anyone know approximately how much of the 3mm vacuum hose I need to replace all the small hoses in the engine? Bear in mind that mine's an LPT and so has no boost gauge! Car is a '99 9-5 2.3t auto.

    Hi, I recently purchased some hoses from Elkparts but did not use it all and would like to offer it to you, guys. 1. 25mm diameter silicone hose - bought a piece from Elkparts (around 20 cm) but only used a bit so the rest is for sale. Currently have 2 pieces for sale, each 65mm long, just...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello all. I am just about to change a vacuum hoses to silicon cause mine looks pretty worn. Should I fit a 3mm diameter or 4mm? I think original hoses are 4mm but website says 3mm is better. Would smaller diameter hoses cause any problems? The car is 9-3 2.0 lpt. Any advice appreciated.

    As in another thread I have a broken vacuum pipe on my 9-5, and at least one other vacuum pipe looks aged. The consensus seems to be that its worth replacing with Silicone vacuum pipes. There is friendly rivalry over whether the 3mm or 4mm internal diameter is best. 3mm seems is reported a...

    I'm in the process of changing the Di cassette and plugs and have read about using silicone grease to keep the water out, but which to use? Is the following PTFE aerosol ok? http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?Module...&doy=search

    Hi, Quick question - when replacing the vacume hoses around the engine, is it best to go 3mm or 4mm hose? I have 3mm all over but I am sure I have read recently that 4mm is what it should be? Cheers

    Has anyone looked into replacing either coolant hoses and/or the rubber elbows in the intake line with bits from http://www.siliconhoses.com/ ? Apart from the fact they can't tell silicon - a crystalline non-metallic element - from silicone polymer they seem to have a good range I had a...

    I've seen this advice before - perhaps on here, perhaps on the other place. The poster said it cured an uneven idle, and fixed strange boost problems. Well, I confess, I didn't believe it, so I owe the poster an apology. I really couldn't see on a Trionic car why it would make a major...

    Hello peeps right, after doing all the various mods to my car ie. JT eggshaust( ) ECU upgrade and other bits I've decided it's time I replace all the hoses on the car. Some are looking a little tired. My question is where should I use the silicone hoses? I know about the dump valve and...

    I bought some on impulse from Elkparts 'cos I was buying other things anyway. I got three metres because of the reviews there. There's two obvious hoses, but they wouldn't add up to 3 metres. What should I be replacing? Are all ends of all the hoses to be replaced push fit? If not, any info on...

    Thinking of switching OEM hoses to silicone. Plan to buy bulk from hosetechniques.com. They don't provide Saab kit. Is 10' 3.0mm and 10' 6.0mm enough as a start ? Any other hoses/diamters I should get ? TIA, Ken '93 9000CSET (stock)
