Hi, I guess you have all heard it all before but my engine has cooked itself!!
Why are 2nd hand engines so expensive??
Is it not possible to get another manufacturers v6 diesel engine and mate it to the gearbox and use the saab electrics?
Surely the saab computers cannot tell that the lump of metal is not isuzu but say mitsubishi?

all comments appreciated, even the mickey takers!!;);)

Hi, if only for the connections of all the accessories it would be best to stick to Saab. I take it the diagnosis of the engine is correct?
Give Neo Brothers a call on 01992 719280 they dismantle all manner of Saabs and test the engines/parts before putting them up for sale. You may be lucky with the engine and you can have it delivered to you next day. ;)
