Name: Nik

Location: Dedham, MA/San Francisco, CA

Means of contact: PM

Price: $5,500


I'm moving to San Francisco for a new job and am considering selling my 9-3 or trading it for something plus cash or straight trade (though prefer some cash or all cash). Main reason for sale is I'd like to get back on a motorcycle. Open to pretty much anything - saab or not, motorcycles, trucks, anything.

I bought this car at the end of last year, it needed significant work - wasn't boosting, turbo was leaking oil, brakes were gone, etc. I've invested a significant amount of parts and time since then and I feel this price is fair. I realize most people don't have $5.5k lying around so that's why I'm open to trades.

I'm also open to just keeping it and driving it over to CA if it doesn't go by when I move (end of June). If I take it I'll install a cat so it passes smog.

Tuned with T5Suite. Innovate wideband O2 sensor signal going to ECU.

It has a base tune on it now, we didn't have time to finish it up. Will be fine tuning it this weekend. It's running very rich and safe now at around 20psi and is already silly fast. I'd say it's around 400whp and after dialing in the fuel and timing I think it'll be close to 450whp.

I have a 3bar map sensor and the fueling is there to support more power but I want to keep it safe so won't go past 20-22psi.

Planning to do a couple dyno pulls once it's dialed in.
