Checking out a 1999 Saab 9-3 SE Convertible
This is a tour of a '99 9-3. From the '94-'98 900, Saab tightened up the
suspension a notch, changed the body style, and also got better crash
tests. This model is Imola Red on Medium Gray leather. If you want me to do
a video on a specific car please leave a comment. Thanks for taking a look.
~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has
limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted.
But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a
lot faster between 0-150kmh, but
these Saabs are faster from
150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line.
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses
traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and
then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three
gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th
gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone
changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile
race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any
incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please
see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min.

1999 Saab 9-3 - Acceleration Problems
My saab started stalling (the engine acts as if it stops running, and then
starts running again). This causes the rpms to fluctuate (sometimes going
down 1500 rpm before coming back up). However, if I let the engine idle,
there is no stalling. The longer I drive it, the worse it gets, until it
stalls when slight pressure is applied to the accellerator. When I turn
off the car and start it back up, it runs normal for a little bit. This
problem has been getting progressively worse and now the car isn't
Also, when the accelerator is pressed hard from idle, there is a dip in the
rpms. However, when in park I can raise the rpms to any level and it will
stay there without fluctuating.
The computer is throwing the code P0108, the map sensor is showing higher
pressure than expected. I have replaced the map sensor and all vacuum
lines connected to the throttle body (they were in bad shape). After doing
both of the above, the car seemed to work fine, then 30 miles down the road
it was back to the same problem. After this I started throwing parts at
it, and replaced the fuel filter, the fuel pressure regulator, and the
spark plugs, I also cleaned out the throttle body. These had no effect.
Just now, I used a baby snot bulb connected to turbo bypass valve to test for leaks, but it
didn't seem to be losing vacuum.
1999 Saab 9-3 stock blow off valve
1999 Saab 9-3. This setup costs me $36. I bought a $10 elbow and a $23
air filter to complete my intake which is very easily installed by removing
the stock air box. I then took off the tube that reroutes the blow off
valve allowing you to hear the blow off valve ( might I add its pretty
impressive for being a stock blow off.). I then bought a $3 boat plug from
Meijers which will plug up the hole where the blow off was routed too.
NOTE: THIS IS A MUST TO PLUG UP THIS HOLE! If you have any questions feel
free to contact me. Enjoy your cheap and easy way to making your Saab 9-3
sound as if its after market! :)
