    Have many people tuned the saab 150bhp 1.9 diesel engines? What would be the first suggested step? A remap? Any bolt on parts that'd be suggested to aid the map results?

    So spoke with ECP who gave me the choice of a new thermostat and housing for £30ish notes or just the stat itself for £8, given my last motors haven't been that difficult to swap just the stat, I bought the stat alone.

    Hello to all I just wanted to quickly check my expectations that I think I've identified an injector leak on injector No. 1. It's not terrible, but it's been hanging around for a while and it's definitely time overdue to fix the little blighter. There are no specific symptoms other than it...

    Hello all. I'd like to know if there's a newer software update for my car other than 2012. This was the last time I took it to a Saab dealer. Now I go to a Bosch car service with lots of Texa diagnostics tools. Are they still making software updates for old cars? Thanks and regards. Dave
