2000 Saab 9-5 engine removal through top
My brother and I haphazardly proceed with a DIY B235 engine swap (out the top as opposed to our previous method of dropping the subframe). This is not a DIY instructional, but 2 guys doing work on an unfamiliar brand, with limited time and facilities. This footage was condensed from 90 minutes of work. In retrospect, I would have done this outside. The garage is just under 8 feet so clearance was an issue for the hoist. Also, the transmission leaked the entire time - watch for the encroaching pool of fluid! Learn from our experience and read up on the procedure well: we had not removed all the brackets and stud mounting from the transmission which would have made things go much, much faster and safer. Lots of effort was spent trying to get the leveler to return from its extreme angle, but we had a cheapie from HFT. Definitely most efficient as a 2-man operation.





Saab Engine Removal 2003 9-5
Taking the engine out of a 2003 Saab 9-5. 2.3L turbo engine. Prep work of removal of the subframe, wiring harness and connections done earlier.





~ 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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urWWdomnncw -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. http://youtu.be/M4NNX4Ygnwc
