    :bigok: I love those cars... Although, I prefer the older ones (like mid to late 80's).

    :werd: I've heard the turbo units in them have a tendency to stop working. If it's in good condition and well-maintained it should be cool though.

    Saabs rule. Ive been looking for a late 80's 9000 or 900 turbo for a beater/car I can do stupid shit in.

    the new 9.3 looks tight straight from the factory. First things first, ditch the 3 spoke rims

    if you let it idle down before shutting it off the turbo will last a lot longer...

    whats the red thing on the valve cover? "winter package" heater or something?

    Thanks for the kind words. :) Yeah I always drive slow [when I'm about to park it] and let it idle 30-60 seconds before turing it off.

    That red thing is the spark plug cover. It's Direct Ignition, no plug wires/rotor/distributor/coil. :eek3: :bigthumb:

    Putting in some new NGK plugs tomorrow.

    Yep, they're quick. Couple people I know used to have them and say they could get them up to about 260 km/h (about 170 mph) pretty easily :bigthumb:
