Hi there, the T9 refers to a specific package, usually Hirsch resourced equipment, which is only resurrected by some Main Dealers to certain Saab models for performance enhancement.Hello, trying to find out about my new car a saab 900 t9, the internet search engines are very limited on info.
Okay... we are different pages here.Hi there, the T9 refers to a specific package, usually Hirsch resourced equipment, which is only resurrected by some Main Dealers to certain Saab models for performance enhancement.
Software update, intercooler, air filter, stainless steel exhaust, larger alloy wheels than is standard for the particular model.
The packages start of with the: S, T, T7, T9, & T18, the T18 includes a Hirsch brakes and suspension upgrade system.
I had the original T9 upgrade package 5 years ago on my 9-3 Aero 2003 and it was a big plus on top of the normal setup. If you look on the Saab Owners Club website in the members Gallery, you will see pictures of the Beast at the Saab GB Bath Nationals this year where I was fortunate enough to have won Best 9-3 in the country. :bigsmile:
This win was based with the T9 package as a starting point.
Good luck with your Vert and treasure it as there are not many around.
Hi Aikmanson, to a degree some of your information is correct! I also should have added, assuming that it has a T9 kit (G and not just the badge! a bit like the sad people who put Turbo badges on a N/A and drill a hole in the exhaust for noise, that sort of thing. As we all know, a badge does not signify that the car is or even has what the badge is stating. :amazed:Okay... we are different pages here.
T refers to the engine management system of a Saab, specifically Trionic. Trionic 5 (T5), is what my 900 is. This can be found on 1994-1998 Saab 900, and the 1999 Saab 9-3 (non-Viggen). T7 is found on 00-02 9-3's, and Viggens, as well as some 9-5's.
So a T9 900 is, not likely. Assuming your engine is stock, it is the B204 (possibly B234, but then it would not be Trionic, it would be Montronic, like my N/A Saab.) You could also have a B202... which is the 2.0L N/A engine. If your engine was swapped to lets say a T7 car, it would have engine code B205 (2.0L turbo from 00-02), or a B235 (Viggen Engine). I have NEVER heard of someone using a T9 engine management system on any of these engines listed, as it would prove ineffective and a complete waste of money. An engine using T9 management, from a newer 9-3, would not be a direct bolt up, and would also be a big waste of time and money.
I have never heard of the Hirsch designation system T9 man talks about, perhaps it is like a Stage thing.
Absolutely not a problem :bigsmile: The packages start from just an exhaust system (non stainless???) air filter and badges, and go all the way up to a performance 2 1/2" stainless steel exhaust system, stiffer ARB's, air filter, bigger brake discs with better pads, dampers, bigger intercooler, software, leather dash board fascia, aluminium door capping, glovebox trims and matching gear box trim, badges and decals. Plus the silly money per hour that dealerships chargeOkay, all makes sense now. When I have "T" and "SAAB", engine management comes to mind, as we do not have the performance kits you guys have.
Did not mean to confuse anyone, only meant to inform. Sounds like a lot of money!! What is included in said kit?
