    Parts required for uprating the clutch on your Saab 9-3 Aero 5spd B207 I bought all the parts in one lot from NeoBrothers when the clutch started slipping on my 93, with the aim of future proofing the car for stage 2/3 upgrades. However, as sod's law would dictate, the clutch stopped slipping...

    Hi guys. As above, I'm looking for an uprated gearbox mount for my 9-5 Aero but searching on here seems only to lead to the now defunct Elkparts, is there anywhere else that can supply one? Cheers Brian

    Hi, I am needing to change control arms on my wife's 1997 900 turbo convertible due to play, so thinking I might change the front shocks at the same time as it has done 120k. Like all convertibles it is a bit 'flexible' and was reading about uprated strut braces for the engine compartment...

    Hi, One of my rear struts is on the way out, and after some looking around standard are around the same price as Monroe Reflex uprated. Has anyone fitted these to their 9-3 TiD?. I was thinking of keeping my standard springs, hopefully improving the handling for the bargain price of £240 for all...

    As the topic says really, is it worth ditching the original bosch el-cheepo one and forking out for an alloy one? Also is it worth going for a Hirsch exhaust or something else like an Abbott one? Just fancy doing a little tweaking to my 9-5 Aero, and wondering what to do first Kind regards...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I finallly got around to adding a second RARB (now 2 x 15mm) a few days ago, what a difference ! Best £40 I've spent in some time, £20 for bar and £20 for wire brush wheel, rust inhibitor, hammerite (they look quite nice in silver), spacer material plus new screws & washers. If anybody needs...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hey all. I am looking at replacing the springs and shocks all round on my 9-5 estate. The car is currently running poly bushes in place of all the OE ones. I dont want the ride to be to harsh but at the same time I would like the car to be a bit more responsive in the corners and not to under...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My '98 CSE 2.3FPT has the 225bhp engine, deepdish wheels and 'suspension upgrade' kit (saab upgrade used on the last models and similar to Aero suspension - 15mm ish lower). However, the rear end doesn't take much to sag and frankly looks awful. I use the car for towing fairly regularly which...

    Finally selling my turbo. This is a TD04-18T (6) completely rebuilt about 18months ago when the conversion was done from 15T to 18T compressor. Turbine has a 7 degree clip on the blades to aid top end flow without affecting spool up too much. It's done appoximately 12k miles most of which is...

    My 9/5 has an Abbott 3" exhaust and modded ECU and following the adage that "too much power is never enough", I'm considering upgrading the breathing side of the engine. The car is an '04 model automatic with the flappy paddle gear changes and I understand that it is capable of dealing with the...

    Last year I took my '03 9-5 Aero Estate to Abbott Racing for a new stainless exhaust system inc race cat and ECU upgrade. Afterwards the car had an amazing amount of midrange grunt. When driving from a-b it was still refined but when pressing on it sounded great under full throttle. Fuel...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, New to the forum & already I have a question, I've seen a 2nd hand Hrisch ECU for a 95 NG900 Turbo which handily enough is the same year as my car. My question is, is this direct replacement in and out or do i have to worry about the immobiliser as I'm sure I read somewhere it's...

    Hi guys (and girls), Im in the process of producing a new 4 bolt hubs for my sonett and 95 to allow me to mount vented 900 discs and callipers and also use the wide range of wheels available for the pcd 108 stud pattern. I will then have a laser cut bracket to mate up the calliper to the disc...
