There's generally 3 pillars. A, B and C. A being towards the front (windscreen pillars), B being the middle (just behind the rear edge of the front doors), C at the back, forms the rear screen pillars on Saloons.

I sort of figured as much, but I thought it might be something to do with the shapes of the letters.
Its ok, you can ask a stupid question too...

Also, in the US, a wide C-pillar is sometimes called a sail panel :)

More trivia: The now-obsolete American body style called a hardtop had no B-pillars--it was basically a convertible with a fixed, integral steel roof.

Frozen poop can actually move pretty fast.. smack some with a hockey stick or a golf club, you'll see :)

I'm pretty sure they also drain water from the sunroof area. I was washing out the gaps between the sliding sunroom pannel and the roof, and a lot of dirt and junk came out the vents.

wow, those Saab designers think of everything :p :roll:

really though, the vents are completely enclosed (to airflow)...maybe they do drain the sunroof.

BTW, avatar is the Floyd album Wish You Were Here with my 900 superimposed...she does run a bit warm :cool:

thanks

Boy, this is a question that I've seen several times on the board, try searching for 'turbo conversion' or something like that for more info, but, generally, the conversion requires:

1. Turbo
2. ECU from a turbo.
3. Turbo manifold and exhaust stuff.
4. Lube modifications (the turbo needs oil, y'know)
5. A turbo wiring harness for the controls, etc.
6. Engine mods as required for the higher compression
7. APC or passive blowoff valve

Generally, this is thought to be much too difficult to make it worth your while. Even people with a turbo donor car generally find it a real pain just to swap a turbo engine into a N/A car from what I gather.
