1st dyno pull from my 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen Stage 3
First pull of my 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen on the Dyno today... Dyno Dynamics Dyno aka the "heart breaker Dyno". Put down
226whp/270wtq. Not bad for a car with 190k miles!
For comparison, a Chevy s10 with a v8 350 swap put down around 260wtq and a
V6 4th Gen Camaro put
down 120whp. Needless to say, I was pretty happy with my numbers.
Also, I am still running a stock viggen Intercooler and it was in the high 80's
today. The operator also didn't listen to my instructions about rolling
into the throttle to prevent overBoosting (which then lowers the Boost once the computer recognizes it).
From what I've read online, Dyno Dynamics Dyno's often run 12% to 14%
lower than a DynoJet
Dyno. So if those
numbers are accurate, it probably would have been around 255whp/305wtq on a
Saab 9-3 bumper and headlight removal
Removing the front bumper and xenon headlight from a Saab 9-3. This is
necessary if you need to replace the xenon ballast. It is not necessary to
remove the bumper or headlight assemblies to replace the bulbs. But, now
you know how, if you ever needed or wanted to.
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.
