    Small loss of power/Surging problem! 9-3 linear

    So...I noticed today as I was driving about 70mph on the freeway, with a steady foot on the gas pedal, that the car was having split second losses of power. It seemed as if the car was surging. The surge is small. The boost on the turbo gauge, goes up and down the slightest but I can still feel...

    '04 9-3 Clutch upgrade. Suggestions...?

    Hello, I own a '04 9-3 linear. I'm easily stage 3. I looked into SPEC clutches but found some mixed reviews on it. I'm a bit turned off. I then looked at Black Diamond clutch systems but started getting confused. I'm a novice when it comes to picking out the most reliable and CORRECT parts...

    Is my turbo toasted?

    Thank you for your replies Sleeper and T9Man! Sleeper: I know that my turbo is a low volume turbo at high pressure. Does that answer your question? T9: Thank you for the heads up on the spark plugs. I'll be sure to buy a set from the 9-3 Biofuel range soon...As far as the coil packs go, is...

    Is my turbo toasted?

    At full throttle/full boost the car putters, looses all sorts of power and violently shakes as a result of whatever is going on in the engine. The turbo does this stutter, its almost like the engine quits for a second comes back, quits again and so on unless I let off the gas. This first...

    Catback Exhaust + Chip = One happy boy

    Anddddd two years later. I'm back. The car has treated me well and I'm at 130k miles. I apologize T9 man for not getting back to you on how I liked the sound of the car...The straight pipe ended up working out just fine. I enjoy the sound. I'm going to start a new thread about a recent problem...

    Catback Exhaust + Chip = One happy boy

    T9 I have to say that will all due respect to BSR and their catback, I was a bit disappointed with how quiet the system was. I decided to run a straight pipe.

    Tranmission oil...

    I've been out of the loop for a while. We had a death in the family so my apologies for leaving the thread a bit hanging. I got tired of looking for the plug to drain my transmission oil so I took it to a Saab guy here in town and he said that transmission oil NEVER needs to be changed on the...

    Clicking Sound...?

    I've been out of the loop for a while. We had a death in the family so my apologies for leaving the thread a bit hanging. T9 I checked my plugs and the coils over them. Things seem to be in good shape there. I am taking into consideration all your ideas guys. I'm running high octane; the...

    Clicking Sound...?

    I am positive that the clicking sound is coming from the engine bay and not from behind the dashboard. The clicking sound is definitely not intermittent (stopping and starting at intervals). The sound is a continuous click [U]only[U] when I am accelerating quickly. Normal acceleration I don't...

    Clicking Sound...?

    Update: I fixed the bad ignition coil and the bad spark plug and got my cylinder to stop misfiring however, the clicking sound did not go away. I know that my car is not starving for oil, I checked my engine mounts, and I fixed the bad ignition coil which I thought was most certainly the...

    Catback Exhaust + Chip = One happy boy

    Update: The instillation of the catback was effortless. I cut the old pipe right after the flex and pieced the new system into place. It took ten mins (with a lift) to finish the entire process. I was expecting the end product to produce more sound however, so I decided that I'm going to replace...
