Wheeler Dealers SAAB 900 Turbo Del 1
Den professionella bilhandlaren Mike Brewer har en budget på ett par tusen
pund och hans uppgift är att hitta en begagnad bil med lite skavanker på.
Som sedan hans topp mekaniker Ed China fixar till topp skick, och sedan
säljs bilen med förhoppningen att tjäna lite pengar på jobbet. I detta
avsnittet renoverar de en SAAB 900 turbo.
~ 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.

Will it Run? Episode 14: 1978 Saab 99 Part 3 of 3
Hi! This time we're going to have a go at getting this '78 Saab running!
It's been sitting around for over 15 years... I bought it last year, and
last month I decided that I would try to get it operational and maybe even
plate it and use it for a daily driver.
Well, it needs a lot of work... the fuel pump, lines, and accumulator are
all shot, the heater is leaky and smells terrible, the wiring harness is
burned up, and the roof and deck lid are peeling and rusty. Also, someone
took a lot of the car apart years ago and never put it back together! The
Exhaust is leaking badly, and the
wheels and tires are mismatched. Well, the budget is still zero, so we'd
better get busy!
Thanks everyone for watching and subscribing! Please rate and share with
your friends if you like this kind of thing... cheers!
