    i was told by the mechanic who diagnosed it that it needed an ecu and a cam sensor (its part of the distributor)

    but from my own diagnosis, the ecu power relay was bad and there was no rotor in the distributor.....i got the relay and have a whole new distributor that should be here tommorow

    I tried doing it the way that I saw on saabcentral, and it didn't work :dunno:

    took it to kragen, and they said the only thing they could do is sell me an obd2 code reader.

    Is autozone better with that stuff?

    :h5:

    I've got the same odd-ball setup of a dizzy vr6 with the updated 93+ interior.

    I call dibs on your d.side sun visor and the tan plastic peice that surrounds your shifter if you ever part it out or anything.

    Awesome find, I love the VR Corrados. I have "almost" bought a few of them over the last couple of years. That thing would be even better with a VF supercharger, some suspension mods and a great detail.

    post up some progress shots along the way.

    well it will eventually be getting a nice turbo upgrade within the next 2 years, im shooting for between 325 and 350 whp

    within the next month or 2 it will be getting lowered as the back left is sitting higher than the rest of the car..im really ready to buy the suspension now, everytime i look at the car i wanna rip the springs off. i just wanna get it on the road and see how well it drives first, make sure nothing else is wrong with it...lol

    and i spent the evening testing all sorts of shit and jumping connectors to pass the ecu and everything works untill the ecu is in the mix so im getting a new ecu for it later this week.

    BTW...I just notice that your SAAB has probably the world's shittiest exhaust manifold. Get something better for god's sake!
