  1. I want to ditch my 900, but nobody wants it

    C900 Workshop
    I would have a hard time parting it out. With working long days I'd only get an hour or so a day so start working on it. Then there's the question of what to do with an empty shell. I live in a condo, so I don't know how my HOA would handle me parting out the car once it's a hoodless...
  2. I want to ditch my 900, but nobody wants it

    Vehicle: 1986 900 16vT 2 door hatch What's wrong with it: throw-out bearing went out preventing it being driverable intake disassembled in attempts to get at clutch odometer doesn't work preventing a legit "easy" sale 21 year old leather interior blown speakers(great cd player) So I don't...
  3. hydraulic to solid engine mounts??

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Those drop in replacement rubbermounts suck for the front. The rubber in the front mount completely separated in a matter of a couple months. I went with an aluminum motor mount for the front and will never have to replace it again.
  4. How Much Horse Power Can you Get?

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    While we're on the topic... I get some whining at certain rpms while only in 4th or 5th.(whine with low rpms in 5th but high in 4th). Should I be on the lookout for a good tranny as well?
  5. Rear wing modifications

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    And weaken SAAB's chassity engineering?
  6. Quiet Exhaust

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    2 or more mufflers? You might start hindering mpg for this extra silence with all the extra exhaust restriction. I don't know how well that wouldbe for the engine as well.
  7. Pre-'87 Headlights

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    lol most of you guys think the blue hid look is impure, but it looks cool. Striving for uniqueness, not getto
  8. Pre-'87 Headlights

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    What kind of options do I have for headlights on my '86 3 door(US)? I heard I can install HIDs, but I would throw down over $100 for a pair of headlights. I would like to get to get the bluest headlights which aren't blue LEDs or over $100. Also, the plastic housing broke, so what can I put in...
  9. Turbo Timer

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    As far as security (if you are this freaking paranoid), you can put a hidden in-line switch to your fuel pump. Keep it inder the seat. Cut the juice to the pump after the ignition is off. Turn the switch back on before you start it up. Keep the switch in the glove or under the seat and no one...
  10. Holy Crap!!!

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I'm not selling this or trying to make any special gain by posting this, but I thought I'd share since this is such a hot item. Besides, if I owned this I'd throw it on my 900...
  11. Saloon Owners - may be of interest

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    \ Correct me if I am wrong, but don't you drive a 1985 t8???
  12. Blow off Valve

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Does single piston vs double piston affect sound?? (because I'm cheap and went with a single piston and it doesn't go off at all with low rpms)
  13. JSP stage 5 boost.

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    any pics or installation walk-throughs? I wanna see the juicy details man!!!
  14. Front wing vent

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Yes, I've read the cardomain on that one, and it's a very impressive car. It's not just a "hit the switches in the back" kinda car.
  15. generating 0.5 BAR boost in neutral - and exhaust theory relating to piping size

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hey just a little tangent here, but if I floor the damn thing in neutral with the clutch out, I can take the rpms up to 5700 rpms and no boost will spool. In the past, if I did this, it would just BARELY be enough to generate boost and blow the valve off. The piping is solid, and there are no...
  16. Rewiring Cooling Fans

    C900 Workshop
    I think I did this "mod" a while back. One of the fans went out. The wires were just a little corroded to I fixed them up, but I didn't get it right when I reinstalled it. I basically set it up so that both fans turn on when needed. I think it's very funny when y'all worry about your SAABs...
  17. shine up taillights?

    C900 Workshop
    Hey what about nifty desings using LEDs or even a square for the tails and the centre of the square for the brake? Or... orr!!!! skyline tail lights!!!
  18. Knock Knock

    C900 Workshop
    Very informative, guys! So when my A/F gauge needle drops off to the lean side and I start bitingmy tongue, I would assume that I would need to look at my fueling portion of the equation. With that being said, I think I have the timing set just right and the vac diaphragm modded just right and...
  19. Knock Knock

    C900 Workshop
    Are there different kinds of knock? I've experienced different things in the past. From click click click click in ~20psi of boost. Just barely audible (at that time I had no knock LED, so I couldn't tell if it was knock but the boost didn't taper too much). I've also heard a loud freakin CLANK...
