I am a saab owner from Thailand. I currently own 900SE turbo (1995) and 9000CD (for my wife). I have modified my 900SE: TD04 and intercooler from Viggen, 3 inch free flow exhaust and Maptun stage 3. The performance is great. However its performance may be limited by the fuel (95 octane) and hot weather. Johnny from Maptun said, from this condition I should get around 260-270 hp. Now I would like to upgrade the front brake. Using one from AP racing or Breambo may be too expensive. Is it possible to apply the front brake set from Viggen or 9-5 Aero to my 900SE. The car is 1995 model). This is much cheaper compared with AP or breambo. I can have any required fitting machined.

Hi 270HP, your NG900 has the same upgrades as mine. I dyno’d at 270 crank hp with the same setup but SQR software. I’ve also looked into the front brake upgrade for my 1996. The problem is the hub, it is larger on the later models. If you want to upgrade to the Viggen brakes you will need a new hub and they are a bit expensive, around $200 each if I remember correctly. Check out my website for lots of other upgrades.
