i have a '94 900 se turbo. I am hopefully going to get some money soon (1-2k) and would like to put it all in my car. What upgrades should i give first priority? I have a friend with a GLI 1.8t who is talking smack about me, and would like to leave him in the dust.

Also, it seems hard to find parts for my saab. Is there a good website with parts for an NG900? most sites have parts for new saabs and old saabs, but not the middle ground like mine

thanks

im not sure what a Gli 1.8 turbo is ?

over here a GLi 1.8 t is a VW , and is not as fast as your SAAB anyway .
the vw doesnt have it where it counts as its 180 hp ( which is a lie ) peaks at 5500 rpm .
and its torque is a mere 173 / my advice if you wanna smoke him , Put your foot down .

however , if you REALLY wanna smoke him , with 2 grand you have no problems.
visit partsforsaabs.com elkparts.com abbotracing.com sqr.se mpperformance.com , there are many to choose from .

first off , sort out your handlng with a koni sport kit .
then upgrade your ECU to stage 1 , add an air filter and there arent a lot of cars that will catch you / that wont cost you 2 grand .
good luck
