2014 - still going strong, did a lot over the last 2 years, changed the gearbox for a newer better one and fitted type 8 primary gearing at the same time. Got a lovely tubular manifold as well. Here's some of the most recent pics:

Thank you very much! To be honest about the type 8's.... They are not all they are cracked up to be really. I didn't expect them to be too different to type 6's or 7's, BUT in reality they are much much longer geared. Revs are considerably lower and the top speed is way more than with type 6/7, this should probably mean that fuel economy is improved too if the car is cruised at a steady speed, BUT they make the car feel sluggish at low revs and the need to change down is required much more often. I'm not saying I hate them or that I will remove them from the car, but I think the best suited gearing to any Saab really has to be type 7 - it is the best all rounder and apart from giving slightly shorter gear changes compared to the 8's I will be sticking with 7's in the future. Type 6 are a hoot - they are so short that acceleration is instant in almost any gear, but as we know they run out of steam too quickly, give poor economy and 1st and 2nd are pretty much useless.
In my latest project here: I am going with type 7's http://www.uksaabs.co.uk/UKS/viewtop...?f=35&t=141535
