I have a 1998 9000 cse turbo with a 5 speed. When I floor it in 3rd gear from about 2k rpm, it seems to hesitate starting at 3k but accelerates normal again at 4k. It does it intermittently and has just started to do it in 2nd too. I am pretty new to SAABs and turbo cars, but I know a lot of general knowledge. I was thinking the direct ignition cassette, but also the DV. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Byron

Sounds like a DI cassette but could also be old spark plugs or even uncorrectly gapped park plugs. Plugs are cheap, so get them (it can't hurt), in the meantime check their gap. They're supposed to be 1.1mm but they seem to perform better at around .9-.95mm.
