  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So as an update the 05’ Arc is getting a complete engine rebuild. Smoked the piston rings and the cylinder wall had some lines. So she’s getting bored out and built. Bearings, pistons, the whole shebang. Now I’m looking towards my clutch and flywheel as the weak points of the build. Car has 156k...

  4. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    First post, Excited to see what people have to say. Ok, so I've had my 9-3 Arc for a few months, and I know I'm going to keep this car basically forever.

    Let's say, hypothetically, that I have a best friend named Schröder. Let's also say that Schröder is a 2001 9-3 Viggen 3dr hatchback. Just out of pure Platonic altruism, I want to increase Schröder's performance to, let's say, 500hp. Obviously gonna get a chip tuning, but in terms of intake...
  6. 9-5 Workshop
    Ok so I have an 01 Saab 9-5 wagon, it had the b308 and an auto that was broken. Got the silly idea in my head to swap a manual into it. I was in the process of doing that when I was in an accident and lost my left hand. Now I’m finally getting back to it and I have a totally different kind of...
  7. C900 Workshop
    So, everywhere I go, they only offer go fast stuff for 1986+. I have a darling little 1984 8V turbo sedan, and I'd like to add just a bit more oomph to her. I'm not looking to build a Super Saab™ or anything. Maybe boost to 180hp. Just for better freeway speeds. But, it seems I might be barking...
