  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hello lads! I got a 2003 9-3 with the infamous hard to swap stereo. So i got a couple of questions! I was thinking of just pulling the cd player portion and installing it there, keeping the original infortainment unit. 1: can i make some form of getho fiber loop by splicing the fiber optical...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Has anyone here attempted replacing the analog clock with the digital trip computer? I've found one on eBay and the seller claims it's a simple swap out, but I'd hate to waste $50 to find out it's not easily doable.
  3. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    One thing I see a lot about is throttle valves and how boring them out to remove the inner lip apparently makes them better, along with fining up the 'fit' of the 'butterfly' (for want of a better term) within the valve body itself. I know that places like Group 9 used to market these (perhaps...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a much-travelled late '93 9000CD Auto B202-engine of 1985 cc with a Bosch Jetronic ECU (it's been shipped from Hong Kong, to Cape Town and now to Sussex!) and I'd like to up-grade it from an LPT to a FPT turbo. It has but 70,000 miles on the clock and everything mechanical is working...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have recently upgraded my 9000 2.3t with a JR filter, Abbott chip and APC. I am lead to believe the increase in power is apprx 40bhp and 55lb/ft. I have now got used to this extra power and am looking for the next step. Is it possible now that I have the APC to upgrade using the maptun...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I currently have a 2.3lpt with a Superchip ECU reprogrammed to output 215Bhp. I am looking to get myself an Aero around Feb next year. I understand they have a standard 250Bhp output and wondered if there is a standard ECU reprogram like above and what it transforms the output to, and what does...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hey what a great site this is! I only joined this evening, and some questions that have been bugging me over the 9 months since I bought my '99 Ltr Ecopower have already been answered, or at least touched on by other members!! Thanks Guys!! Anyway, I was wondering what things one can add to...
  8. Saabscene: Performance
    The only weak point on my HOT estate is the brakes, which for such a large powerful car are in my opinion poor. What options do I have for upgrading them, my dealer told me about an Abbot kit that uses AP racing parts, anyone have any experience of this and can give me an idea of cost? Thanks...

    Upgrading the GM900/9-3 fuel system – Information needed With this post I want to find and gather information about upgrading the GM900/9-3 fuel system. I have heard of several types of upgrades but I would like to find some good links or write-ups that detail how the upgrade is performed and...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Ok guys . . . sorry if this thread repeats everything thats gone before . . . but my thoughts are focussed on LONGEVITY rather than PERFORMANCE. So I want to take my 1995 2.0 LPT (Trionic T5) up to higher boosts (cheaply) and have read with interest all about ECU upgrades, Dawes Devices...
