My 97 CSE has the same gear box/ratios as an AERO, but, I dont reckon I would be doing 140mph+ when changing up to 5th, from memory its somewhere around 120mph on changing up

Definitely normal gearing for a 2.3FPT/Aero I reckon... I'm pretty sure I wasn't getting into 5th despite reaching over 135mph last time I was at Goodwood

sorry adrian I was being ironic...
there is feeling that saab engines cannot rev..
but I for one know that they can...
I was taking mine to 7k and beyond (having so much fun) and the engine was not strained at all
hummed like a sewing machine and used no oil
the limiter started to come in around 7.5k as far as I remember
I can recommend getting your engine dynamically balanced !!
