  1. 1999 catalytic converter on a 2002

    9-5 Workshop
    My turbo blew (blue? heh) too much smoke and wrecked my catalytic converter. I have a TD04 on the way with the needed parts for the upgrade for my linear. I am also going to get a new catalytic converter. I don't want just a down pipe. Can I used the 1999 catalytic converter on my 2002? Will I...
  2. Race/Performance Cats & Emissions

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I'm shopping for a new exhaust system for my Aero, 3" turbo back because why not? I feel like everything is pointing towards the Krona system with performance cat. My question is, if I get this kit (or another similar), am I going to fail emissions (Ontario) or should I be safe?
  3. 2006 Saab 9-3 Canada vs U.S. Emissions?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, I really need your help. So I bought this 2006 9-3 about a year ago from Canada (I live in NH).

    Hey folks, I'm looking at 9-3 in a few days which is labeled as a mechanic's special. It's been taken to two dealerships and two indies for various bits. The car has had a pretty good service record but it looks like it failed emissions because of high NO x. The coolant system has been...
  6. Random stalling at idle?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just completed a clutch replacement this month and replaced engine oil while I was down there. Car's driving wonderfully but every once in awhile when idling it will turn off. It doesn't really stutter or stumble (maybe the tiniest bit). It'll be idling right below 1k (I don't know where...
  7. If you fail emissions because of OBD, please check the connector yourself first

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I went to emissions test today and failed because they said there was no voltage at the obd connector and it didn't communicate. But I was able to plug my own handheld obd scan tool and it was working fine. So I couldn't really understand the reason why they didn't get any voltage...
  8. Need help with emissions 16V Turbo LH2.2

    C900 Workshop
    I have a 1988 SAAB 900 Turbo Convertible that has failed California SMOG. Have had it tested 3 times. Once after each batch of repairs, and fiddling. I don't believe the CAT is bad as the CO2 content is high (good). I eventually got the 25 mph test to pass by a large margin but failed the 15 mph...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
