Obviously this is a dyno readout of one particular car, but I think it's safe to say this is a good reference point for those of us with the 185bhp/5spd engine. The automatics (according to Saab) make about 20 ft/lb less torque, so I don't know how that would pan out.

So, I ran your numbers through Excel and got the attached chart - does anyone know what SAAB's official Dyno chart looks like - It should look about the same, but with 30HP difference across the board, due the the shaft vs. wheel measurement.

I'd love to see it for comparison purposes.
