    Just wanted to share this with you. My wife wanted a wood dash in place of the carbon fibre one that came as standard with the car. Managed to find a nice one on eBay for £20 and took about 45mins to change it today. Was a bit worried as an American guy on YouTube made a film about doing...

    Hi i am new to the forums. I was doing research on my 2001 saab 95 and really couldnt find anything on modding the 3.0t, just a lot of assumptions and no facts cconcerning durability, twin boosting, ect. I then began looking at the saab 2.8 from the aero 93. Would this motor and tranny swap in...

    I have a 2002 93 gas and in a thread a gentlemen was saying there are bigger turbos in the 95 i think a t28? There is a 2000 95 with a blown engine in the strip lot on post which i have found most parts match p to mine i.e dic and tb. Will this turbo swap work, is it actually bigger, is it ok...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a 1.8t Arc and sadly it doesn't come with a turbo gauge, I would just fit an aftermarket turbo gauge but it would look so much better if I could just get the dials from a vector or aero. Do you know if this is just a swap over? Swap over then tech2? Or is it impossible? Hope this hasn't...

    Hi I have a wood dash to replace the ugly plastic thing in my 87K 1995 SAAB 9000 Aero (yup you read it right). I have had the top off the dash and the airbag out in my old mean green '95 Aero (same except with TCS/without sunroof), also most of the controls out of the dash at some time or...

    Hello again boys and girls my back tyres are in much better shape than the front two (Heavy Boot) and am getting my discs and pads done at weekend all 4 and was going to ask the garage to to change the wheels around is there anything really wrong in doing so (Novice) for example tracking wheel...

    Hello, just a quick question. I am in the process of swapping over the auto box of my new 9k and putting in the manual from my old one. What do i do with the wiring from the auto gear selector ? can I just leave it alone or does it go back to some sort of control box that i will need remove ...

  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello all, I'm looking to swap my Audi S3 for a 9-5 Aero (saloon or estate) as after long searching (and the arrival of our second child) it seems to offer a great deal of performance, kit and space for the money. I have a few questions though (I have looked trought the forum and cannot find...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    If I was to get hold of a leather interior to put in a facelift 9-5, does it have to be from a facelift car, or will one from an earlier 9-5 do? I'm sure they'll physically fit, but are the airbag plugs the same (did all early cars have sidebags?)? Not too worried heated seat wiring! I'm...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does anyone know if the engine and autobox from a 1995/N 9000 2.3t will go into an early 9-5?

    My 9-3 (2.2 tid) 2003 has just conked out (crack in the engine somewhere apparently). I was wondering whether it's possible to do a straight swap with the 1.9 tid engine? By straight I mean not too involved (labour costs!!). If it's possible would I need to bring over the 1.9 tid Engine...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Guys, What's the compatability between a 2.3 '93 Aero and a 2.0 '95 LPT in terms of swapping the ECU. I'm currently in the process of upgrading the latter with an intercooler and hope that it'll be a 'plug and play swap. The only slight doubt I have is that I seem to remember that there was...

    Hopefully somebody who is good with part numbers will be able to help out here: I have 2 SAAB 9000's currently. A 2.0 NA CSE and a 2.0 FPT? CDE. Both have very similar looking ECUs physically but carry slightly different part numnbers. Question is, can I interchange these 2 parts: SAAB AFM5...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Friends of mine must sadly let their Griffin go, after many happy years, due to changing personal circumstances. I was thinking of swapping the walnut bit near the gearlever as it would match my dash, but then I got to thinking about the leather door trims with the nice walnut tops and so on...
  20. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi guys the leather on the base of my driver's seat is beginning to look a bit tired and I am contemplating whether I could get a second hand passenger's side seat and swap the bases over instead of having the leather re-connolised. So, my question is this, has anyone ever done this before...
