Fastest Saab in America firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally ran a 10 last night, been trying for a couple of years now and we
finally got the car running right and put down two 10 second runs and
became the first ever 10 second Saab in the USA, car had a little more in
it too and we did this a mile high at Bandimere Drag Strip outside Denver
Colorado. Best run was 10.615 at 139.54mph. This was Street Wars, grudge
match racing, real street light and no tree. No times on the boards, but we
still got our time slips...
Boat with 2 Saab's turbocharged engines
Boat: Vator 22 ft. with two turbocharged
SAAB B234 engines.
It's my cousin's boat and he has made most of effort on this job.
My cousin has followed my standing mile races with my Saabs for years now.
Late 2010 he said that he will get rid of his old Mercruisers and put a
Saab's engines instead, if I help to tune those for a boat use.
So here we are :)
These are an early tests and we are looking forward for summer 2013 ;-)
~ 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.
AJs vs The Soiled SAAB
AJs took on the complete detail challenge of this 1995 SAAB 900. The car
was used as a commuter vehicle through the red dirt roads of Mendocino
County. The customer was hoping to sell the car and needed a professional
to handle this extreme detailing job. Watch to see the amazing
NOTE: Engine steam cleaning is an additional service on top of a complete
detail. Normal completion time for a job this big usually takes between 4-5
hours. Additional fees are also charged for heavily soiled vehicles and to
those older than the year 2000.
DragCar T3 Turbo Dyno Runs and Drag Launch
Some more video from the drag car. Made 620whp on 30psi. At 1am.. ;) Not
bad for a B205 with stock rods.. Limiter in these runs was 8500rpm. More
info at TrollTuner.com
1,600 Wheel Horses on the Dyno...
Anytime you take a couple F2 chargers feeding a whole bunch of cubes and
add methanol even on only half of max Boost it is quite a show.. Intake gasket that
didn't want to play cut the day short. Around 1,600whp through an auto!
Lots left in the car and the Dyno. Over 1K ftlbs by 4
thousand... Easily the new top HP record for the Dyno without even trying yet.
Had manners like a street car just a bit more bark.
Built by Mark Werdehausen of Tydo racecars. A few of the components
came from Taliaferro machine shop. On the Superflow Autodyn 30 in
