Are you afraid of the SAAB?
This video is really old, we've got the girl racin! Here's footage from
From www.thecarbeque.com We've worked out all the major problems with our
$400 SAAB, installed a set of EBC race brakes, put on the race Exhaust and the next step will be all the safety
equipment. We will be going to Alston Race Cars in Antioch to get the snow
leopard (our internal codename for the carbeque) measured for the roll
cage. They do amazing work. In the meantime we will begin to devise our
cooker box that'll turn the 900 into a real Carbeque. Until then, enjoy!

A custom Saab 900 that splits apart and then reforms. Made for the 2007
Chalmers Cortège in Gothenburg. I was not involved, i just filmed it.
Getting a clear shot was abit difficult beckause of the crowds.
How to drive a Saab two stroke, 2 stroke cross country
Tom Donney drives a two stroke Saab and explains how to use the "free
wheeling" approach to help avoid melting pistons on a two stroke Saab.
These engines were designed to run on 95 octane fuel or more. Today's lean
ethonal or low octane regular fuels can be hard on your engine. If you
travel from state to state your fuel choices vary greatly which can affect
your jetting choices. (Just as altitude changes your jetting too). I have
driven my 1961 Saab (and other pre-1960 Saabs) from Iowa to all points in
USA. Even into Mexico (with my family of 5) and Canada. My way is just "a
way", not the only way.
NOTE: Non Saab people watch this and make comments like "too lean", "timing
off" or "my two stroke runs all day at full throttle"
All I can say is good for you and your car/motorcycle/airplane/what the
hell ever. Come follow me across country in your vehicle anytime you want!
Check out this youtube video named "black 93 2-stroke saab on Dyno" you can see this very
Saab, which a few who seem to miss the point of this video and seem to
think is "too lean" (850GT, 1st design triple carbs, oil Injected engine
bored to 74mm) running on a Dyno and foggging for bugs.
Just FYI, I also own a Mustang Chassis Dyno (have ran over 100 two
stroke Dyno tests),
and have a box of Saab jets that I bet cost more that the people who keep
typing "it's too lean" paid for their 1st two cars! Plus I have had it and
others fitted with AFR gauges...so "NO...IT IS NOT TOO LEAN" :) BTW
Come to Dodge and we can take it, or other cool old Saabs for a spin.
Safe Saab'in, tom donney
Turbo Saab 900 B202 engine sound, loud Turbo spool or whine
I ported and half polished this cast manifold and sprayed it with a ceramic
coating on the inside and on the outside for better thermal insulation.
The old 5 bolt flange plate is a nightmare and slows the turbo down way to much, its not the cast collar
like everybody thinks is the problem, its the small port that creates back
pressure and reduces Exhaust velocity.
Million Mile Saab
