Thanks!Slick ride. Where did you source the intercooler from?
<<must resist modifications to the saab...>>
Thanks! I don't have any hard numbers to compare, sorry. I just definitely felt the difference in high ambient temps.Hi Swede,
Nice thread, even nicer car.... Good Job! I wish i had the time and resources to spend on half of your upgrades. While I presently looking at upgrading the Head Unit, I do live in very hot part of the world and have been thinking of a more efficient intercooler to improve performance (with Vtuner). The Mishimoto looks really good, but wonder of you did any comparison between the stock OEM and the Mishimoto? Do you have any data for the OEM unit? Can you quantify the perceived difference?
Also, your leather interior looks really good. As Hirsch does not manufacture this anymore, I have just ordered these from Germany:
Keep posting, looks fantastic!
So tempted to do this sooner than later after I was looking at the Amazon link...nice work.Also installed the Mishimoto Z-line intercooler this weekend. No modifications needed. Removed stock intercooler, hooked up Mishimoto intercooler with 2 90 degree reducer elbows, good to go. No hose kinks at all.
Thanks! This intercooler is the real deal. I've purchased ETS intercoolers in the past for my 9000 Aeros and this one is just as solid of construction. Fins and end tanks are very high quality, welds are beatiful, even the packaging was triple-corrugated heavy duty cardboard haha. Good stuff.So tempted to do this sooner than later after I was looking at the Amazon link...nice work.
Did you notice any "flimsy" charactersistics on the intercooler fins? I.e. were they extremely thin fins?
The intercooler seems to have some better quality on the end tank photos I have looked up instead of standard cheap ebay cores I have seen friends/others use on projects.
They also have this in black too for anyone looking, but the silver does look good and still stealth...since no on expects much from a Saab anyway [which is awesome]
