Genuine saab intake
Car has been gone over basically restored by me. I always dreamed of having
the 94 900 turbo havning fallen in love
with Saab in 199-93 when i bought my first Saab. Red was always the car to
have for me and when i found one i had to have it. if something wasn't
right, i fixed it.
Car is tight and turbo pulls strong. The
water pump started making a little noise, so i'm replacing that asap. So
the car is basically good for another 100,000 miles with everything i
windows are tinted and I put carbon fiber vinyl on the sides, but those are
just cosmetic no value things in my opinion. The dash and center console
also have the wood grain which is taste-full, but strictly cosmetic too.
Tranny was just flushed and filled with syncromesh Pennsoil. Synthetic was
in previously, but Saab changed it and i would've had to flush with that
stuff which was twice the price.
I religiously change the oil at 3000 miles and always, always run 92+
octane. Radiator was flushed with the idler pulley and will be again with
The dash and Speedo started to flicker and 2 bulbs burnt out, so i
purchased one with 20,000 less miles on it (ebay) and replaced it. lights
up fine now, and while i was fixing that i made sure i replaced the ACC
Whoa I think i said too much. lol
Some negative: The hatch has some rust i started to repair. I stripped the
rust and put rust inhibitor paint and just sprayed factory paint over it.
Stopped the rust from getting worse and looks good from ten feet, but need
Cruise works, but doesn't go off when pushing in clutch. (Bad switch) So
you have to tap the brakes before pushing in the clutch. After I got the
shofterlinkage installed I have to hodld the shifter in reverse to take the
key out. It whas also popped out of gear going in reverse, so I just make
sure i hold it when goiung backwards.
I' sure it is just an adjustment, just never bothered me enough to fix it.
i recently purchased a Viggen, and 9-3 900 turbo, Selling two keeping Viggen and SPG. The 9-3
still needs work before i would sell it to anyone, but before i knew i was
selling, this year I actual put this car in the Carlisle Import show.
(didn't win, but I felt like it's worthy of showing to people with the
quality of work)
I spent hundreds of dollars and time to get this car ready to sell.

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!
