Yep that was posted rescently (i think, did'nt look at the vid just the description) I think it's an 8v that's been tuned to well over 300bhp:cheesy: , i'm not sure what's been done to the car, must have electronic FI & ignition + loads of other goodies i'm sure.

Looks like an Evo spoiler on the back, not as nice as my 9000 Carlsson spoiler, but hey you can't have everything!

:confused:

Not yet, it's sitting on a window sill at the moment! I've got to take the boot lid off and clean it up a bit, reweld the seam, remove the old foam spoiler, clean it up and mount the 9000 one, just needs a bit of adjustment where it bolts in to get it to sit properly.

They are a perfect fit aswell, maybe 1cm wider than the standard spolier at the most, very similar to the 2 door 16S bridge spoiler, just not quite as rare.

I've got a sheet load of stuff to do to my car, i've filled my spare room with car parts! Just waiting to hear whether i can rent one of the garages behind my house or build a gate to my garden so i can start some serious Saab'ing again.

Got my MOT comming up next month aswell, def need to do brake pads, back disk's & a couple of CV boots to get it through:confused: .

That's as far as i've got so far, just popped it on top of the nasty foam black/green thing to see if it would fit OK.

Here's the first one I saw:
http://videos.streetfire.net/search/saab/0/5F7A82B0-7591-43A8-B945-8D528A895EEB.htm

There's a website, too, showing the car being built, but I can't find it now ...

Oh my God, what a fast powerful 8V 900:lol:

what on earth has he done, a deal with the devil me thinks:cheesy:

The pictures I have shows he's put a common rail and 4x further injectors for "fill-in fuelling", along with the k-jet system ... 8x injectors 8) The rest will be bigger turbo and some kind of hybrid k-jet and electronic FI whatsit.

He used to be at something off http://www.blyfot.nu ... blyføt being "lead foot", but I can't find or think of the url beyond that.

Si

Sounds like maybe a merc V8 k-jet with 4 standard injectors and a 2nd bank of solenoid triggered injectors, maybe k-star or megasquirt controlled?

Which country is it from? I may post something on one of their Saab sites to see if anyone knows the spec.

Hopefully i'll either get one of the rented garages behind my house or if not put a gate on the bottom of my garden, then the fun starts, complete the performance stuff and then strip the body of rust, reweld/fill, prime & full respray! I ment to do it last year just did'nt get around to it so hopefully this summer.

Oh and i've got to get these on aswell

and your floorboards need some work too :cheesy:

35sq meters of chipboard

70 sq meters of laminate underlay

50sq meters of maple laminate

20sq meters of tile effect flooring

.......... i could take a picture of that pile in the corner of my living room too!

.nu - I think he was Norwegian. I asked about the car on 900 Aero and Widde found him pretty quickly. I can't find my post now :roll: Maybe when 900 Aero is a little quicker, I can find it ;)

Mate, those floorboards are nice. You can get the cracks filled with latex, linseed oil the lot and the latex disappears into a really nice wood finish. Laminate cracks and a few dozen high heels over it will leave it looking like yesterday's lunch ;oops: Wood is very warm. I find my wood floors warmer than carpets in our Pennine temperatures.

Your fireplace will do up well ... just pull off those long tiles and re-do with something stylish. Or repair what's there and kind of make a joke of the style and/or era with other furnishings. I have a set of steps from my front room (front house of a pair of back-to-backs) to my back room (rear of the two back-to-backs) that looks like the descent into an Egyptian tomb. I've mounted a pair of black cats either side of the steps as a kind of joke. Everyone loves it, though :cheesy: You can hide retro-styling by sneering at it.

I like the spoiler. Of tuners, not unique. Of Saabers, very unique. That car looks and performs. Every scenechange in that movie resulted in an audible "Good God!"

I think the guy was holding his handbreak or his tyres have really really bad grip:lol:

.nu - I think he was Norwegian.
.nu is the TLD for the Island of Niue. Often used as a generic, non-geographical TLD (like .com, .net and .org).

If the tyres don't give or have much grip then the gear box does not have a mega load on it, make sense? its just turning at high speed.

If he was doing a 0-60 lets say, and he gets no wheel spin, that's when the gear box is being bombed with torque.

If he has 338Hp I am sure he has a blessed gear box or one thats had work done on it.

Very powerful car i must say, amazing that its a 8V, it must have a hugh turbo charger, i mean huge:lol:

that is true... the actual burnout isn't hard on the trans :)

Since he has a LSD that makes the stress a LOT less then those of us w/o a LSD thus we do 1 wheel burnouts :(

You can hear his trans whining & crashing when he increases speed & shifts.... so jealous!!! I need a trans like that w/o the #$%^ing syncros :)

The problem is when you go from wheelspin to grip very quickly. On a wet road, the transition should be more gradual, and so ( hopefully ) spinning wheels on a wet road shouldn't be too bad for the gearbox. I have done it a fair few times, mostly unintentionally. Strangely enough, it does seem to spin both wheels fairly evenly, and the car doesn't seem to hop or anything. Tempted to try a proper fast start in the dry, even though I'm aware how stupid that is :)

The most power is used in moving the car, if you get a small pre-roll its reduces the stress alot.
