A quick vid of my 91 Saab 9000 turbo. Mods are cold air intake with open cone filter, modded ecu and apc controller and downpipe back catless 2.5" Exhaust with 18" resonator. Im going to be changing the Exhaust soon to full turbo back 3" with a magnaflow muffler.

SAAB 9000 Turbo S 1991
Dit is een originele SAAB 9000 turbo S
uit 1991 met 70.000km op de klok. Dit model is maar een jaar gebouwd en
deze specifieke uitvoering is zeer zeldzaam. De auto is recent voorzien van
een rvs uitlaatsysteem van Abbott Racing en een speciaal SAAB-stuur.
Af-fabriek heeft de auto onder meer airco (ACC), cruise control,
tweekleurige 16" wielen, een reflectorpaneel achter, mistlampen voor,
sportonderstel, sportbumpers, leer met suede interieur en natuurlijk een turbomotor.
Deze auto is in Youngtimer Magazine nummer 8 (mei 2011) getest en
vergeleken met een SAAB 900 turbo S uit
This is an original SAAB 9000 turbo S
(pre-Aero model) from 1991, with 70.000 kms on the odometer. This model has
only been built for one year and this specific type is considered rare. De
car has recently been equipped with an Abbott Racing Exhaust and a special SAAB steering wheel. The
car was delivered with automatic climate control, cruise control, two tone
16" rims, a decor panel, fog lights, sport chassis, body kit, the leather
suede seats and of course a turbo
This car was featured in Youngtimer Magazine (Dutch) no. 8 (may 2011) and
compared with a 1985 SAAB 900 turbo S.
~ 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.
1990 Saab 9000 CD 2.0 Turbo 16v from 80-180km/u in 4th gear
Here I am accelerating my 17 year old Saab from 80 to 180km/u to measure
it's 100-160 time. It appears to be around 11 seconds (considering the
speedometer is not completely accurate), which is fast but you can imagine
that it is even quicker when I would use the 3rd gear up to 145km/u.
