    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    I was planning on installing an open air intake on my 03 9-5 Aero. I want a little more turbo sound. My question is do I have to jack the car up to install it or can I squeeze through from the top or turn signal compartment? Thanks in advance.

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just bought a '96 900S convertible. Love it. I'm having a problem with the idle speed, which oscillates while I've got the clutch in. I suspect that the air intake is leaky, mostly because it seems to be missing a seal. Note that the two small screw holes in the second picture which have...
