  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    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...
  2. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hey! I just bought a 2002 9-5 Aero with the 2.3L turbo engine. The original turbo is blown, and I have some questions about replacing it. I know somebody with a 2.0L 9-3 for parts, would the 2.0 turbo fit on my 2.3 or is that a different size? Also, for upgrading the turbo in the future, what...

    So, I want to put a diesel HX35 turbo on my 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T. Yes, I realize how huge that turbo is--I'm planning on getting a custom manifold made so I can have the turbo sticking slightly out of the hood with it's own cooling scoop. I'm putting another scoop in the hood above the airbox. I...

    I have a 03 9-3 linear and just recently I noticed when the car has been running for about 15-20 minutes at operating temperature I notice when you get on the gas and the turbo goes up you hear like a rattle it sounds like a heat shield or something rattled around or loose the more you spool the...

    Up for sale is a 1988 Saab 900 Turbo convertible. I've worked on it slowly and lovingly for many years, but just got married and am moving to a home with less space in the garage, so it's time to let my Saab go. Almost everything works today including the turbo, 5-speed manual transmission, and...
  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello everyone, I was driving my 2002 Saab 9-3 2.0 convertible, I accelerated fast and heard a loud popping noise, it sounded like it came from under the car. However after that I got a code P1300 (Torque limitation low). While accelerating my turbo gauge went up to the redline and check engine...

    Good Morning 2005 9-5 Arc with 256k miles. I have a small, slow coolant leak on the passenger side of my engine bay, near the coolant pump and turbo. I know there are a few possibilities for locating the leak, and I was hoping to get a little help figuring out what to replace. I've taken a...

    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...

    i have a 94 9000 cse and it has a valve cover leak. when i make boost upon acceleration it smokes from the exhaust. this happens when i start the car too. could the oil be leaking into the exhaust manifold and be causing this smoke? i don't really wanna spend $500 on a new turbo. thanks.

    I've recently acquired a 1987 Saab 9000 Turbo. The distributor in the car is blown so we didn't bother turning the key when we looked at it. Once we dropped it off at home, I tried to at least get the engine to turn over, but when I put the key in, it wouldn't move at all. I jiggled the...
