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
Saab 9-5 SID LCD Display Repair
My repair of a Saab SID display, which had lost pixels on the LCD screen. Ultimately, I discovered the ribbon cable had deteriorated beyond repair, and I purchased a replacement ribbon cable. A $400 unit was fixed for a little more than $40.
some upgrades wich we have done between X-mass and new year...
~ 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
Saab 9-3 Aero Carlsson
My dad had the opportunity to appraise the limited edition Saab 9-3 Aero Carlsson during the week starting 17-Jan-2011. This is the first car from the limited edition of 96 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Erik Carlsson's first RAC rally win in a Saab 96.
This video is not a review and does the car no justice, though we thought it a worthwhile last hour to have spent with the car. The intention is to try and share what will one day become something of a collectable, a point already proven by a BMW driver who tailgated us so he could record the car over on his phone.
Unfortunately for me it was during a week of exams, which being both an engineering student and the owner of a 6 year old Saab 9-3, I can honestly say I have never had such a valid reason to procrastinate.
Just be sure to turn the volume up to max.!
