    9000 Workshop
    So, I have recently swapped a 94' CSE B234L into a 98' body. The 94' had too much rust. Everything went in smooth, decided to replace the water pump and timing chain while engine was out. I also rebuilt an extra turbo that I had and put that in as well. The car runs great and drives good but the...

    9000 Workshop
    So I'm all quite new to the forums and such. Just wondering if you guys could help me out! This might be a stupid question.. But I've recently found a 1998 CSE turbo with a solid body, but an engine that knocks. The body of the 98' is in a lot better shape than my 94' CSE Turbo. Is it possible...
  3. Progress on my rescue/restoration of 98' 9k

    9000 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    In november I picked up a 98' 9k for 1500$ cdn. It was in rough shape, after sitting for roughly 8 months. It hadn't been abused as much as it had been neglected by the PO who was using it as a parts car for a 97' LPT:nono;. Now it is in my hands it is being babied and treated how a car like...
  4. Aftermarket Stereo Problems

    9000 Workshop
    Alright first off I am the proud new owner of a 9000 cse and I LOVE it. It's a great car and I have no problems with it, except one. The owner before me put in an aftermarket head unit and didn't use a wire adapter, instead they cut the plugs off. This wouldn't be a problem but Saab doesn't do...

    9000 Workshop
    Hey guys! My front bumper on my 98 9000 cse recently got backed into and smashed... :( Instead of buying another cse bumper, is it possible to put an aero bumper on a cse?

  8. Little turbo, lots of air sounds

    9000 Workshop
    My son inherited a 97 9000CSE (no apparent mods) and when we accelerate hard, there is a lot of what I'll call air noise. The sound is NOT louder with the windows down and may in fact be louder with them up. It's never had the boost I recall from a friends older 900. I'm wondering where we...
