    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    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...

    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...

    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...

    9000 Workshop
    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...

    9000 Workshop
    I bought a 1994 9000 cse with a manual trans for 900 bucks. The guy that sold it to me was very honest and told me that it would be a project (which i wanted) and said the turbo seemed it was failing, it had a coolant leak, and it smoked on startup. On my way home from buying it, i noticed that...
