Toxicavenger, do you mean without issues? If not, what issues have you had? I’m hesitant to blame the filter since I haven’t run into a single issue yet (besides this one, potentially), and i’ve been running this one for over two years now - and previous owner didn’t have any issues, either.
For me, the filter came with the car, and never caused any problems. I have it covered in a K&N hydrophobic sock, and do the recommended cleaning interval as not to overall it - that's ~30-50k miles. It never gets horribly/unbreathably dirty.
Cheesy as it sounds, the induction noises are part of the driving experience for me - I don't know my car without them. I've begun associating the sound with my car, and it wouldn't be the same without it. I hate that, but it's the case for me. As far as gains go, while gains are negligible out of the box (~5-10hp depending on who you ask - I call BS, too), I would need an intake modification of some sort to reach stage 3 levels - hell, even Hirsch modified the airbox to make it more free-flowing. I also don't feel bad using an open air intake as it's in the bumper on 9-5s, and not close to the engine like on 9-3s - this placement definitely makes it inefficient and potentially even reduces power.
Anyway, back on topic - the car's at the dealership again. After doing more general research and reaching out to Brew City Boost, I'm skeptical of the ECU being the issue and am looking to see if maybe the injectors are getting old and crusty or if too many heat cycles started wearing out the coils in the injectors. Who knows at this point...
Hi all, sorry if that has already been discussed but I have a 2008 9-5 with the stereo with front aux input and was wondering if there is anyway of putting a rear aux in instead so I can hide the wire out of the way
I have absolutely no connection to this car. I stopped by a garage I worked at about 35 years ago. Anyhow, they have a 1999 Saab 9-5, 2.3, green, no dents or rust. Need a good cleaning outside to be close to perfect. Inside is tan and almost perfect. It is a 2 owner car with records...
Just wondering which fuse the cornering lights in my fog lamps are on? It doesn't say on the fuse panel door. I have a '99 Wagon. Hopefully not the infamous fuse 35, as I don't want DRL.
Thanks in advance :)
I'm going to bite the bullet and order Bilstein B6 shocks/struts for my unlowered Linear wagon. Car has 190,000 km (125,000 mi), and makes some deep clunks over certain bumps that sound like they could be strut mounts. (Front subframe bushings all replaced.) So I figure the strut mounts should...
