Default Saab 9-3 Arc 2.2TiD Turbo upgrade_HKS GT2835 Pro S

Hello,

I just signed on the forum and thought to present you and ask you what you think of my Saab. Well I know most of you went for the gasoline powered engines...that is Saab is all about , but I have a 9-3 Arc 2.2 TiD engine (Isuzu) and it runs great.
The modofictions that I made consist of :

- K&N cone high flow air filter
- K&N gas recilculation filter
- R1 Concepts Premium drilled front and rear brake rotors + pads.

Now I'm preparing to change the stock turbocharger with a new HKS GT2835 Pro S Turbo and a full Aluminium intercooler.







I will post pictures with the filters and brake rotors.

Nice Dutch car you have! The export of cars is going crazy over here! (30% increase this year..)

How much Km's does it have?

Keep us posted on the turbo upgrade, I'm very curious for the results.

It has 183.000 km...the only thing I replaced was the EGR valve. Well the engine bay is dirty because of the national roads being so "clean" . I've never driven the car on mud or offroad...anything like that.
