Sorry for quality, my camera is old and crappy.
2.0 I4, 5 Speed
185 HP @ 5500RPM
194.6 TQ @ 2100 RPM (oh yeah!)
3020 lbs Dry Wright ... might have to gut some stuff
Sitting on 205/50/16 Goodrich
I love those cars... Although, I prefer the older ones (like mid to late 80's).
Yeah my dad loves the old ones. He was so happy when I go this one.
hope it stays running well
a buddy of mine used to own the exact same car, cept i think his was a 95. i helped him with this custom blitz bov setup that car is pretty quick, but he had a lot of problems when trying to shift fast (driver error im sure).
I've heard the turbo units in them have a tendency to stop working. If it's in good condition and well-maintained it should be cool though.
Saabs rule. Ive been looking for a late 80's 9000 or 900 turbo for a beater/car I can do stupid shit in.
Have any links for aftermarket stuff like that? Not alot about Saabs on the net.
the new 9.3 looks tight straight from the factory. First things first, ditch the 3 spoke rims
if you let it idle down before shutting it off the turbo will last a lot longer...
whats the red thing on the valve cover? "winter package" heater or something?
oh yeah, ... and NICE RIDE! looks pristine
Thanks for the kind words. Yeah I always drive slow [when I'm about to park it] and let it idle 30-60 seconds before turing it off.
That red thing is the spark plug cover. It's Direct Ignition, no plug wires/rotor/distributor/coil.
Putting in some new NGK plugs tomorrow.
Yep, they're quick. Couple people I know used to have them and say they could get them up to about 260 km/h (about 170 mph) pretty easily
any ideas what turbo is on those?
saab ic > volvo ic as far as pressure drop goes
