  1. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hi All, I'm hoping someone can educate me on ECU swapping. Background I have a 2005 9-5 Arc, which I understand has the same engine and TD04 turbo as an Aero. I picked up a 2004 Aero ECU and I'm prepared to have it married via a Tech 2. I was recently informed that this swap may not go as...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, I'm new to the Saab community and also new to this "Saab Driving Lifestyle" . (And my apologies for this long *** post but I wanted to cover everything) I own/drive a manual 2003 Saab 9-3 Linear. So.. the clutch was slipping when I bought it for $1200 with 114k miles on it, But wasn't...
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey all, I'm looking to swap the stock turbo on my 2.0t (L motor) to a 14t from a 2.0T model. I read somewhere in another forum that it'll bolt right up utilizing the same hardware. I just want to 1) make sure this information is accurate and 2) see what else I'll need to complete this swap. I...
  4. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi guys, first post here. Not sure if there is much info out there but how difficult would it be to swap the 2.8 v6 into a 2011 9-5 vector (obviously built with the i4)? Does anyone know if people have done this or have any helpful info in this regard? Thanks.
  5. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    recently i picked up a td04-14t for my 04 9-3 LINEAR(2.0t), i planned to to go with the siemens deka 60# but ended up finding a 07 9-3 2.0T in the junk yard and snagged the injectors off of that. I swapped the injectors off of the junk car on to my linears fuel rail, but came to realize these...
  6. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello All!, I am on the tail on of my automatic to manual swap. I have/used an 02 Aero donor car for all the parts(gearbox, clutch, linkage, etc). I put everything in (including the manual gauge cluster), jumped the NSS, and car runs and drives! Then, the electrical gremlins started....the...
  7. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi and thanks for looking, hopefully a guru or two can help me out here. I'm aware that N/A to Turbo questions are common but my searching didn't return easily digestible results. --- I thoroughly enjoyed my 96 900s before it was totaled and would like to have another. Looking through...
  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey Everyone, I could go on and on but its getting late. First and foremost a brief description of what happened. I live in Colorado and it's winter. Letting your car get warm before you drive has been burned into my brain. Long story short it was the first really cold days of winter...
  9. 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...
  10. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Out of curiosity, how much work would it take to put a 205/235 into my 9-3? The engine would be coming out of a 2001 9-5 wagon, seen here: http://tucson.craigslist.org/pts/4725653256.html. Looks like it says ecopower on the valve cover? I don't know whether it's 2.0 or 2.3 or turbo or not. Just...
  11. C900 Workshop
    Because the apaulstry in my beater 900 is so much better than that of my 88 900, I want to swap. The main problem is that the 88 is manual and the 94 is power. I expect a wiring marathon, but initial inspection reveals a slight variation in the seat brackets, therefore the floor pan and how the...
  12. 99 & 90 Workshop
    Hello, I've found and read the Auto to Manual Conversion PDF doc that's available on the C900 tech forum for performing the swap on a C900 (obviously :roll:). While I understand the fundamentals would be the same to do the swap on a 99, is it as much of a bolt on conversion on the 99 than on...
  13. Tech II Workshop
    Gentleman and ladies... Need Tech2 out on the Island for ECU flash for B207L to B207R (wtf) engine swap/upgrade..... Let me know if I may be lucky enough not to have to bring this thing over A bridge to get it programmed. thanks all. :o
  14. NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hi all! This is by no means a serious question that I plan on doing now, but for future reference, I was wondering if it is a good idea (or even POSSIBLE) to swap out the 2.0t engine I have in my 2003 9-3 Cabrio for a bigger engine. I'm not looking into a huge engine like a V8 or anything...
  15. 9-5 Workshop
    I'm in the process of swapping a working Garrett GT17 from my 9-5 Linear for a TD04-15T and I thought I'd start a thread to share some ideas and ask some questions. The car has about 88,000 miles and has had most of the major stuff done already. Apparently there was some sludge in it way before...
  16. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    2001 Saab SE Convertable w/auto trans. Victim of sludge. I just bought it 3.5 weeks ago. Saab Specialist here in Seattle, WA wants $3000+ for new (different/running) B205R engine in it. Can I swap a B235R T8 engine T8 into it, without too much complication. It seems the B205R is a more...

  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I've seen a few threads in which members talk about their aftermarket lenses, but never actually seen a thread about it. Let me start by saying I'm new to the whole "retrofitting" or whatever you would like to call it, but I am pretty handy with things so the swap was no problem for me. It...
  19. 9-5 Workshop
    So I'm about to start doing a hybrid of exterior body parts with a First 1st gen style (98-01) and the Second 1st gen style (02-05) 9-5 Aero. And possibly something from a 9-3 (nothing crazy, I'll explain when I get to that point). I'm starting with the rear. What I want to do is keep the...
