According to the performance data on the Hirsch site

http://www.hirsch-performance.ch/motor_e.htm

They claim 0-60 times for stock 9-3 2.0T as the following:
7.5s/9.0s for manual/automatic

However, after upgrading to either the 230HP or the 252HP version, the times improve to the following:

230 HP
6.9s/7.1s manual/automatic

252 HP
6.5s/6.6s manual/automatic

I find it very hard to believe that the 210 HP automatic takes 9 seconds to go from 0-60. Do you suppose that 9.0 seconds is really supposed to be 8.0s? Any thoughts?
Thanks.

I expect that Hirsch must have changed the shift
programming to achieve such similar times.
I suspect you are right. I have an automatic and from 0-15 mph it is painfully slow. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if I could post better 0-15 mph times on foot than in my car!

Out of curiousity though, have you or do you know of a US vendor for Hirsch products?
Nope. But I vaguely remember receiving an email from Saab about Hirsch upgrades....I will try to dig that up and see if it mentions anything.
