Volvo S60R AWD 300HP vs Saab 9-5 Aero Abbott 300HP 80-230+ Acceleration
Saab launches with traction control on but S60R naturally launches much better with the help of AWD. With better torque and less power loss on the wheels against S60Rs AWD system, Saab with Abbott ECU just kills S60R until 220 kmh. Then R comes back into play again. This Volvo was my new purchase to replace the Saab 9-5 Wagon but I kept the Saab instead. My plans to make R faster was abandoned after reading some issues with the angle gear weakness issues and Volvo never addressed this expensive fix.
Volvo: 2004 S60R Stock power of 300HP/350NM
Saab: 2005 9-5 Aero Stg3 tuned to 300HP/400NM
Modification List: ECU by Abbott Racing Delta (original power 250HP/350NM), FMIC, 3" DP, 3" Exhaust with no cat, forged pistons, big intake, dump valve.
2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero. Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
