Hello all Just joined and just got an 88 spg just bought it with 110K on it bone stock. great motor and turbo. tranny feels a little worn and reverse grinds when engaged sometimes but it runs great. I was looking online for some mods and how to improve when on 1st and 2nd gear I can't really rev in both 1st or 2nd. I was wondering if anyone did an APC upgrade through Saabperformance.com they are doing a deal right now where the APC comes with the fuel injectors and the dude told me that just that ALONE can increase my hp to almost 200-220hp depending on the condition of my car. also I was wondering what intake would be good for the car like this one?http://www.ebay.com/itm/K-N-Performance-Cold-Air-Intake-Kit-SAAB-900I-16V-/200666045216?_trksid=p3284.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DSI%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BUA%2 52BFICS%26otn%3D21%26pmod%3D400244157363%26ps%3D54 sorry, i'm not that good with mechanics and dont know alot about parts. but love these cars and I would like to learn how to make this car more reliable and also more fun to drive. I don't want my car to be a monster or anything but just enough for the tranny die on me

Just an apc upgrade alone can get you to almost 200whp. I have dyno proof with a slipping clutch. Completlely stock with modded apc and fender intake mod, running 18 psi (330,xxx miles on motor). You want to leave 1st and 2nd alone for the most part. Any hard pulls in either can cause big issues. A 3bar FPR will supply enough fuel. Without having to swap injectors
