Mt. Ascutney Hill Climb 2013
The eEuroparts crew brings Norman, the trionic testbed and new product
development rig, to Windsor, VT for some on site testing! Who said
research was boring?
SAAB 900 Rust Repair (ugly but effective)
This was a successful repair, with a whole race of abuse and a crash on it,
it's still in the same condition as when it left the garage. Hopefully my
schmuckness will be inspiration for you to go and fix up your SAAB, even if
you aren't a great welder. The rust kit worked well and installed with
little modification. This is a big load off my mind, the nightmares of the
wheel crumbling off have finally stopped.
Tracking Down El Blanco
A couple of the eEuroparts.com sponsored cars find themselves on track and
have a dual. Adam Goral in the SAAB 900 turbo vs. Mike 'El Blanco' White in the Merkur

Fastest Saab in America firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally ran a 10 last night, been trying for a couple of years now and we
finally got the car running right and put down two 10 second runs and
became the first ever 10 second Saab in the USA, car had a little more in
it too and we did this a mile high at Bandimere Drag Strip outside Denver
Colorado. Best run was 10.615 at 139.54mph. This was Street Wars, grudge
match racing, real street light and no tree. No times on the boards, but we
still got our time slips...
The Carbeque Wakes Up
After an entire winter of tearing down, resealing, and getting put back
together with a completely new fully electronic engine management
system..... The CBQ breaths once again!
The car is now Trionic 5.5!
Rejuvenating a Bosch Motronic Air Flow Meter
Here's a video description of refurbishing a Bosch AFM for a Porsche
924S/944. On a wide open throttle run, it would go flat at ~2000 rpms
before getting itself together up towards redline. This is a good thing to
check if you're experiencing any kind of random hesitation and have ruled
out the obvious stuff, like vacuum leaks, bad plugs/wires/distributor
points, oxygen sensor, ect.
This same repair concept probably applies to any other barn door-type AFM,
only getting at the inner workings will be different.
This info was mostly from http://www.the944.com/ under "Air-Flow Meter"
