Saab 9-3 Sleeper - Budget Big Turbo Build - Part 1
I just want to mention that this is just a hobby, so excuse the shitty welds, this car was build in a shed. I also want to stress I do not care about this car much other than the engine, so certain things are done with no regard to aesthetics. Excuse the weird music, cant use anything nowadays because of youtube's fucking copyright policy I got this car for cheap, and most of the parts for cheap, with the goal of making a very fast 'sleeper' that I can troll people on the road in un unsuspecting old saab. The car also serves as a cheap way (if I blow it up) to learn about tuning, as the ECU is remappable via free open source software (T5 suite) which is something that interests me. These saabs have the legendary B204 block which is very strong and can handle big power. I am aiming for 330+ bhp minimum. Eventually I want to put a holset turbo on it and try get 500bhp. Part 2 will be a while yet as I've ran into many problems (Injector problem, Exhaust leaks, manifold leaks) Spec so far: Larger chinese turbo (seemingly good quality, made 300+ hp on SR20) (size TBC) Full 2.5 inch Intercooler piping and large front mount Intercooler Top mount turbo manifold 3 inch downpipe Exhaust diverter valve (for maximum stealth, quiet when through factory Exhaust, super loud/no restriction through side exit) 875cc injectors Oil cooler HID headlights Much much more Custom power steering lines SR20DET S14 Radiator To be done for part 2: Side exit Exhaust 3 Bar map sensor Live mapping Wideband install
Abbott Racing 3" Exhaust on Saab 9-3 Viggen
My attempt at recording what an Abbott Racing 3" Exhaust sounds like on a 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen. You hear the car start up, then the video switches to a bumper mounted angle for some real road audio. It is the full 3" system from the turbo back. Poor tools make for a fairly mediocre recording job unfortunately. Shot using a Sony Cyber-Shot digital camera combined with an Apple iPhone with suction mount attached to the bumper..... doesn't really make for a good quality audio recording. The iPhone just cannot handle the brutality :-) Enjoy... the best I can do for now.
