    I have a 9-5 estate 2.3 lpt MY01 from which I want more overtaking grunt. Can anyone tell me is there a discernable difference between Abbott Racings Stage 1 & Stage 2 upgrades and if so is it worth the money? Or am I better going Stg 1 then saving some pennies & jumping onto the Stg 3...

    At last after months of deliberation, Ive finally put my order in for my Stage 3, so in a week or two I should have had it fitted!!! Im pretty excited about it, and its my less expensive alternative to buying a new car (aero). Had to take the loss of my 'ppc' and put that down to an expensive...

But, having done a few searches, I'm now confused about whether I will do any...

  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Speedpart stage 3 parts fitted tonight and WOW! On the adaptation run I was very impressed by the new found power. The JT 3” exhaust makes an enormous difference to the car. Not only is the top end much, much more lively but lag has all but disappeared and boost comes in much earlier. This...
