    Hi, I'm new here and also new to the car community in general. Someone's selling a cold air intake system for the Saab 9-3 2001 (my car's exact model). It seems like a steal, $90!! What's the procedure to install this? I heard that the MAF sensor will get confused if I install it wrong and I...

    I have been receiving mixed opinions on installing a CAI, so I would like to know from some fellow Saab 9-3 2.0t owners if it actually worth the money and time. Thank you, -Grantly

    Today I made and installed a CAI in my Saab. It is placed down behind my fog light. I know a lot of people on the forums say the cold airs don't do anything for our cars, but those are usually placed where the old box was. I feel like I had gains when I was driving after I installed, all in my...

    I was bored last night so I decided to make my own Cold air intake for my 03 vector 2.0T. Yes, it is actually a cold air intake. The filter location is inside the fender well right behind the fog light. Here are some pics.

    So i am new to Saab ownership and I have already fallen in love with my 2001 95 v6. Ive been looking for a cold air intake for it and instructions on installing one. Would replacing the origional intake pipes do anything wrong since there is an electronic air regulator for the turbo(i presume)...

    Recently I have been in search for a new intake for my 03 95 aero. After looking all the forum I have only been able to find info on cold air intakes but I am hesitant to install one with fear of water-logging my engine as well the additional work it would take to make a shield. After speaking...

    Hey everyone, I am new to the forum. I recently bought a 2006 9-3 2.0t for about $5,000 dollars from my aunt. It only has 13k on it and runs great with extended warranty until 2014 or 75k. I want to tune the car a bit, but can't find much information on it. These are the things that I want to...

    I've been looking into buying an intake for the saab but I didn't wanna pay rediculous prices for parts that I can make myself and will work as well. Even though theres no performance add w/ this mod, the spool up sounds great and the diverter valve is really loud now. Disclaimer: You will ruin...
