your in the same boat as me, i have a 93 and an s10. you will be happy with your 900. i love my 93 but for some reason, i still love my 2.2l s10 better, something about a truck...Im a new owner of a Saab 900 and want to know the easiest ways to push more power out of the 1997 2.0 turbo. My other vehicle is a 1987 Chevy Blazer so there is alot of difference. Any ideas and suggestions would be great.
Personally, I'm more fond of doing suspension upgrades first. These cars need some work before they can handle the power they have already, and if your suspension is worn, it's even worse. Upgrades can include lower/stiffer springs, quality shocks, poly bushings, upgraded rear roll bar, subframe brace, and rack brace or poly upgrade.
After that, you can add as much power as you want. Various levels include cat back exhaust, ECU upgrades, down pipe upgrades, larger turbos, intercooler upgrades, larger injectors, fuel pumps, clutch upgrades, etc.
When i first got my car, it was all over the road. I would hit the gas on a straight and any bump in he road would have me practically changing lanes. It was scary to drive over 65 on the gas. I installed a bigger rear sway bar and now its alot better. I still have some work but i can now go alot faster than 65 and feel safe doing it. I thing suspention is more important than power.^^^^^^^
What Bob said. Definitely sort the handling first....go faster bits later ;ol;
