Huh? A VTEC? No, its a red DI cassette.

Clear out the emissions junk, heat/ac etc and thats the engine bay that is left. 'Cept the bars, of course.

And the ECOTech 4 banger GM developed for racing can pull 1000 hp out of 2 liters.

Actually that is the valve cover & ignition pack from the
old 9-3/900. The block most likely is old generation Saab.
These new Saab guys should research the history of Saabs so
they know their cars ancestry :roll: Here is a pic of a real Saab
engine using the old block & head, minus the red ignition.

This engine is from a 9-5 Aero.

I think that front bumper looks pretty darn tough... i wonder if it was a custom fab or is there actually an aftermarket vendor out there making body parts for the SS, I know when I had my GTI there were so many options for body kits it was overwhelming.
