Car made 416 bhp and 403 lb/ft torque @ 1.5 bar, should have been 1.8 bar but this was down to a split Intercooler hose and the base Boost needs to be raised a fair bit! Loads more to come here....Very happy so far, totally different driving experience to the GT28RS. Fair bit slower lower down, but goes ballistic above 4k!!
Saab B205 62mm Dyno Run 710whp
Found a bit more with the improved intake manifold and head on the b205.
R14 on the spring, then playing with Boost control to flatten it out. Check Out

~ 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.
saab 9000 strikes back
my new madness... make a full swap of a '96 9000 aero into a '90 9000
starting the engine once of the very first times.
1996 Saab 9000 Aero 0-60 time.
Stock 1996 Saab 9000 Aero. 0-60 in about 6.6 sec. definitely not my best
run... lots of wheel spin into second. More to come! Check out the ODO
