At the risk of starting an un-necessary argument about which gauges are best, wouldn't it be more useful to put in a gauge of something that could potentially harm the engine?Originally posted by jig:
[qb]Thanks for the response guys,I think the oil temp would be the easy option[/qb][/b]
Life's too short. Let's not argue. It's horses for courses as to what gauges someone might choose EGT and AFR are good ones to have - but I see no prob with oil temp eitherOriginally posted by Adrian W:

Which might, indeed, be a reason that some people do not wish to install them as they are contrary to the understated nature of SaabsOriginally posted by Adrian W:
[qb]The A/F ratios often even have flashing moving lights. Very neat looking. Perhaps not the cheapest, but more important than oil temp probably, and certainly good for the "bling bling" if you know what I mean.
It does appeal to me in one sense. Half the time I think I'll stick lots of stuff on my Saab, the rest of the time I think that I'll take stuff off it so it is more stealthOriginally posted by Adrian W:
[qb]I don't think /john likes my bling bling idea.
And therein lies the beauty of Saab tuning... you'll be dealing with known parameters. The Maptun boys (and indeed Speedparts, Abbott, Hirsch et al) have done their homework so you don't need to worry about monitoring lambda and EGT- assuming everything is working OK.Originally posted by jig:

What's the story with the "placebo water temp gauge" on early 9000's ?? [/qb][/b]
