  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Does anyone know if the engine from a 2005 95(i think it's a b234r) will fit in the 9-3 engine bay? It would be nice if everything lined up, but if not, how difficult would it be to do the swap? I'd like to keep the b207r, but there doesn't seem to be as much aftermarket support as the b234r...
  2. 9000 Workshop
    I'm about to buy a 1995 Saab 9000 cse turbo 5 speed and the guy said he did a head gasket and he turned it over and the chain "got caught somewhere" and snapped. I've never heard of this happening... is this something these engines do in assembled incorrectly? I understand there are 2 chains...

  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    some of my lifters in my N/A b234 are collapsed. i have some good lifters from a b205 out of a 02 9-3 and i’m tempted to put them in temporarily just to get rid of the terrible ticking noise. any thoughts or recommendations? i know using used lifters from another engine isn’t the best thing, but...

  6. 9000 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I posted in another thread, but then decided that this could become a discussion of its own, so a separate thread might be better. I am building a hot rod. Powerplant is a B234 2.3L motor from a 1995 9000. Transmission is a T5 5-speed transmission. And I have tall rear tires because this is a...
  7. 9000 Workshop
    I have restored and repaired classic cars. I have done engine swaps, and body swaps on hot rods/rat rods. And I have also enjoyed the fun of modern European cars with efficient turbo engines. Now, I am starting the journey of building a car from scratch and combining all of the above. I am...

  10. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    A friend has a spare b234i block laying around and my timing chain is donzo and I'm sure the chain guides are donzo as well. So I think I'm going to take the b234i as a base to rebuild. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the list I have so far. I have a '00 aero b234i crank b234 turbo pistons...
  11. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So I'm halfway through a 2000 mile road trip when I exit a restaurant after dinner and start a 1998 900 S 2.3L (Talladega edition) 5sp that starts, then stalls instantaneously after the first throttle burst above 1k RPM. Intermittently over the next hour I try cranking it over no fewer than 7...
