Saab 900 turbo on the Stelvio Pass
On August 15th 2010, we drove a MY84 Saab 900 T16 and a MY88 Saab 900 Aero
up and over the Stelvio Pass; also formally known as the 'best driving road
in the world' (Jeremy Clarkson - Top Gear). Besides the fact that we had to
cope with rain, hail and the occasional campervan, it was a delight and the
best day ever spent in an old Saab.
1985 Saab 900 SPG - Megasquirt 2 Extra Rev Limiter
Testing the spark cut Rev Limiter in Megasquirt 2 Extra on my 1985 Saab 900
SPG. The rev limiter was set to 5000rpm which was too low and I was hitting
it too easily. I have since raised it to 6000 rpm which is much better.
The day after I made this video my transmission exploded. 3rd gear sheered
off because of pinion bearing failure. Just before the video ends when I
release the clutch with the gearbox in neutral you can hear the pinion

Are you afraid of the SAAB?
This video is really old, we've got the girl racin! Here's footage from
From www.thecarbeque.com We've worked out all the major problems with our
$400 SAAB, installed a set of EBC race brakes, put on the race Exhaust and the next step will be all the safety
equipment. We will be going to Alston Race Cars in Antioch to get the snow
leopard (our internal codename for the carbeque) measured for the roll
cage. They do amazing work. In the meantime we will begin to devise our
cooker box that'll turn the 900 into a real Carbeque. Until then, enjoy!
