Super SAAB is ALIVE!!!

This is my 2006 Cobalt SS/SC. I blew my motor at 82k from being young and dumb... I replaced the motor on my own with the help of a friend. Neither of us had every done any engine work EVER. AT ALL. It was swapped to a Saab 9-3 B207R motor and all needed items to make it work out for us. It's on a horrible 1 hour tune that is just to make it drive and idle. In 3 days, I will have a full tune to make it work like a dream.

Saab 9-3 Sleeper - Budget Big Turbo Build - Part 1
I just want to mention that this is just a hobby, so excuse the shitty welds, this car was build in a shed. I also want to stress I do not care about this car much other than the engine, so certain things are done with no regard to aesthetics. Excuse the weird music, cant use anything nowadays because of youtube's fucking copyright policy I got this car for cheap, and most of the parts for cheap, with the goal of making a very fast 'sleeper' that I can troll people on the road in un unsuspecting old saab. The car also serves as a cheap way (if I blow it up) to learn about tuning, as the ECU is remappable via free open source software (T5 suite) which is something that interests me. These saabs have the legendary B204 block which is very strong and can handle big power. I am aiming for 330+ bhp minimum. Eventually I want to put a holset turbo on it and try get 500bhp. Part 2 will be a while yet as I've ran into many problems (Injector problem, Exhaust leaks, manifold leaks) Spec so far: Larger chinese turbo (seemingly good quality, made 300+ hp on SR20) (size TBC) Full 2.5 inch Intercooler piping and large front mount Intercooler Top mount turbo manifold 3 inch downpipe Exhaust diverter valve (for maximum stealth, quiet when through factory Exhaust, super loud/no restriction through side exit) 875cc injectors Oil cooler HID headlights Much much more Custom power steering lines SR20DET S14 Radiator To be done for part 2: Side exit Exhaust 3 Bar map sensor Live mapping Wideband install

~ 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 300meters wasted. 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.
