I'm planning a 2.0T build with a 2.1 head and intake. What are the best cam options? Any dos and don'ts?
Also, is a 2.0 head on 2.1 short block a viable option, either NA or turbo? Would minor porting, i.e gasket matching and opening runners a bit (without involving a flow bench) make much...
Im working on a 2005 SAAB 9-3 2.0T Cabrio. Originally I would drive it and it would run fine until I take it on the highway then it goes into limp home mode, and throws a throttle code. so I replaced the throttle and it did nothing, then I replaced the MAF and it did nothing. then randomly a few...
So since the beginning of winter last year (2021), my fuel mileage has gone from a consistent 22-24mpg to about 14-16mpg

Good evening guys,
I might sound stupid but I can't seem to find an adapter or anything so that I could run a oil temp sensor off the oil pan nut.
Basically I wanna be able to watch my oil temps so I know when its safe to run her a little harder, If it helps I think the lug size is 14 x1.5

The car was owned by the ocean for most of it's life before migrating down to Pennsylvania, but surprisingly no rust.
It's had it's fair share of Saab-ish-ness though.
