Saab Press Event at Premier Park - Winter In Finland
A Saab Test Drive Event held at Premier Park, Porvoo, Finland on December 9
2010. New Saabs availlable to testdrvie on the track or on road. I took
these clips to test my Canon EOS 7D video mode (first time) - so no great
action stuff here. I have to say I really liked throwing the 9-5 Aero XWD
around the track though... www.saabisti.fi
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
2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero.
Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof
along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more
stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Neo Brothers - Saab 96ss On the Dyno!
Performance information is beginning to trickle through from Maptun during
their tuning process. BHP is currently at 470 and 520nm of torque with
scope to increase to 500BHP plus! Restrictions have been identified by
Maptun and we therefore need to undertaken some modifications. The car has
therefore for the moment been limited to 470BHP. These modifications will
be done by us in due course. At present we have to bring the car back from
Sweden for its UK unveiling on the 3rd of August at the International Saab
meeting at Wicksteed Park, Kettering.
We have however obtained a short video of the 96ss going through one of its
tuning processes and even as is, it sounds pretty good - see and hear for
Saab 9000 Turbo - Documentary
The Saab 9000 is a large executive car that was produced by the Swedish
company Saab from 1984 to 1997. Representing the company's foray into the
executive car scene, the 9000 remained in production until it was replaced
by the Saab 9-5 in late 1997.
Saab designed the 9000 as part of the Type Four platform in conjunction
with the Italian automaker Fiat Automobiles. Fiat retailed similar
derivative versions as the more basic Fiat Croma, the luxury-themed Lancia
Thema, and the sports-oriented Alfa Romeo 164. Unlike the 164, which shares
only the chassis, the Croma and Thema are outwardly similar to the 9000. As
such, much of the bodywork appeared interchangeable between the 9000, Croma
and Thema; for example, the doors. However, because Saab fitted heavier
side impact protection they will not fit. Only seven
different parts are actually interchangeable. The 9000's body was
designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and Saab designer Björn Envall.
Despite being shorter overall than the 900, the 9000 had a longer wheelbase
and greater interior space, and was the first Saab vehicle imported to the
United States to be classed as a "large car" by the EPA.
