    Tranmission oil...

    i know on my 9000 aero I hade the hardest time trying to find the drain. I eventually found it after much looking and what threw me off was that it was a flat plug with an allen wrench type of hole.

    The New 9-1

    Hopefully Spyker/Saab won't be stingey and release these models only in Europe; The US is in some desperate need of some quality made european cars to combat the asian market (honda, yota, kia, VOLVO:blink:)

    Well it all depends on what you are trying to do. I personaaly like the konis, had a set on my 97 honda prelude before i trashed it. If you are looking for exhaust I just put a JT superflow 3in turbo back on my 9000 and the sound and performance are awesome. Has a nice European/Italian tune...

    need some advice for my saab 93 2.0t

    depends on what you are looking for. I have a 94 9000 aero and it had a 30mm factory lowered suspension and the handling is fairly different than that of the cs or cd. In fact I am thinking about going with a koni suspension system which will lower my car another 30-45mm. The reason I am going...

    Tips for extra performance?

    Depends on what you consider as low cost. I just installed a JT 3in from the turbo back exhaust on my 94 9000 Aero and with out a tune it upped my torque and hp enough that my buddy who has an 05 G35 coupe is now wondering how I keep up with him so easily . Cost of the whole exhaust kit was only...

    basic grand cherokee jeep tuning

    you shouldn't have to pull the ECU for a remap just buy a piggyback tuner. If you are looking for a whole set up I would recommend going with this EDGE setup.

    Saab 9000 tuning tips

    Saab 9000 tuning tips

    Depends on what you base stage tuning on. What you described I would say is more accurate for the cars as a whole ie motor trany suspension etc. With my saab I have found that it they do the stages just on engine performance and it goes well past stage 3. Maptun a Saab specialty company goes...

    overheating amps

    Try running your subs in a series instead of parrallel. Its sounds to me that your amp is not stable to a 2ohm mono load. It may be stable to a 2ohm stereo load which doesn't draw as much amperage as the mono load. Less amps means less heat.

    Looking for a new tow vehicle - Any ideas?

    I personally would never tow with a car of any kind, but that just me I have always had full-size trucks to do it. My fav being my 95 Ford F-250 with a 351w and a five speed. The most I towed with it was an 8000lb bobcat with 4 attachments on a 22 foot dove-tail trailer with three axels total...

    TATA Nano - A new threat?

    Does anybody remember the YUGO. The TATA sounds like the same thing. If it comes to the US all I can say about it is that it is like a bad fart yeah it will linger for a while but eventually it will die off and go away. Just like the YUGO. I mean hell we have the smart car now which are not too...

    Would you buy a high mileage car or an older one

    Having owned both new and old like you are describing I would personally go with the older model with less mile mostly due to the fact (and I only speak of people here in the States) most people do not take their cars into the dealership or as we like to refer to them as the "stealership" for...

    That just totally sucks. Maybe you might want to think about getting the optional hardtop. I know it looks a little goofy with the hard top but you'll have less drag and they won't be able to slash it. Hopefully your police are a little bit better catching the bastards than they are here.

    Top Tips & trade secrets.

    Buy Craftsman Tools... fairly inexpensive and guaranteed for life. If you do a lot of wrenching ( this is a no brainer ) if the bolt has six points the socket should have six points. If the socket has twelve points then the socket looses half its grip. Six points mean not having to wear thick...

    Top Tips & trade secrets.

    Seafoam the intake every 10k mile or every third oil change. Don't follow directions to a tee. When it says to let it set for 5min let it set for 15-30min for best results.

    Beer or fuel

    You all need to learn a little from the States. We make moonshine which can be used for drink or fuel. All you gotta do is have the car set up for alcohol and your set. What you don't put in the tank you can drink and vice versa. Problem solved.:lol:
