ASFALT - Motormagasin, avsnitt 10. Svenkstoppen
Vi lyfter den eviga frågan: SAAB eller Volvo?
På papperet är de ganska lika, 850 T5-R och 9000 Aero. Framhjulsdrivna
familjekärror med både fart och finess. I en direkt jämförelse
framträder markanta skillnader i upplevelsen. Vilken väljer du och
~ 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.
Yamaha R1 vs Police (SAAB 9-5 Aero)
*** EDIT: The officer driving the police car was later sentenced to pay a
ticket, 19.000 SEK (€ 2000 // $ 2850). The reason was he didn´t obey
order to abort pursuit and he didn´t had the permission to cut the bike
Video from Sweden. An unmarked police car chases an Yamaha R1 -01. Seems
like the police doesn´t use their sirens. The driver of the police car was
later charged for not obey order. 6.34 he receives the order to abort the
pursuit. And yes, the guy on the R1 didn´t have the skills to keep the

How to add an Aux Input to a Saab 9-3 USING A PLUG-IN HARNESS!!!
THEY ARE BACK IN STOCK. If you want one, send an email to
email@example.com and I'll reply explaining how to buy.
Since the other method required splicing into wires or attaching to
individual pins, I decided to simplify things for people by making a
plug-in harness. The connector on the harness is identical to the factory
connector and plugs right into the auxiliary input on the back of the
radio. This makes the installation super-simple and quick.
Installing BSR PPC Stage 1 to a 2006 SAAB 93 2.0T 210hp Auto
This just arrived today we had already tuned it but had not driven it yet
because we wanted to remove the speed limiter which is done by selecting
the top speed on the website via linking up ur ppc to ur acct, then after
that you go and retune the car and the speed limiter lifts. I wanted to
show the whole process from out of box to 60mph, its pretty much the best
speed Boost your going to find for
under $1000, I havent taken it on the freeway yet which is where you really
see the change but initially I'm very pleased, and like I mentioned I
bought this thru Hahn Racecraft and theyre just so easy to deal with, Ive
ordered from genuinesaab and esetuning both are great but Hahn is just more
knowledgeable and seem more concerned that you're happy than with just
selling you something so I'm old school I appreciate that still, lol this
was my 40th birthday present as I enter midlife crisis and find the need
for my car to go faster lol. If
you need any help or have any questions feel free to ask, I studied this
thing for 2 months straight before getting 1, if your looking to put an
upgrade on your saab this is what you want this company is in very tight
with saab aka koenigsegg and does most of their testing on saabs
