  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey everyone, Can the cylinder head bolts on the 9-3SS B207R be retorqued in a similar fashion to the og9-3/9-5 motors? If so, what is the procedure and torque specs? I could not find anything in the SAAB WIS or in the SaabCentral archives. My coolant system pressurized and puked out all of the...

  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hello. I'm new to the forum. Thought it would be a great way to reach out to Saab fanatics. :D The project I'm currently working involves swapping cylinder heads. The donor car being a '03 9-5 Aero that overheated (I know what I'm getting into), and the project car being a '03 9-3 SE...

    I have a feeling I have the intake valve issue developing. First start of the day has it running unevenly for about 20-30 seconds. Starter sounds like there's low compression on one cylinder before it starts. I plan to run a cold compression test tomorrow morning with my (very) understanding...
  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello. I'm just wondering what you guys think. Do any of you have experience with cracks in this head? It is a 2004 Linear 2.0t US market with 141k miles and to my knowledge has never overheated. It doesn't appear to have any issues, runs great. I noticed burning oil smell and it turned out I...
