Finally got one!!










The Good- 175 psi compression in all cylinders, recent fuel pump, new struts/shocks, eibachs, strut mounts,bsr intake,stage 1 tune, saabsport,GS sport front engine and tranny mount, installed wannabe forge DV from my 9000, looks to have GS steering rod bushings as theyre blue, Refinished wheels with great tires

The not so good-Drivers seat needs stitching/worn a good amount, stereo needs to be remounted nicely/rewired, rear bumper needs repaint, front bumper has the usual cracks, fog lights not working(thinking its the switch as it doesnt illuminate when pressed),SID has mssing pixels, alignment is bad/needs control arm/tie rod,hood has some long stupid dents, missing jack covers, rear spoiler fading clear coat a bit along with 3rd brake light, ebrake doesnt work, and cracked drivers corner light

Price-3700 with spare DIC,cps, o2 sensor and still need to pick up spare black hood someway

Should be fun!!!!

Not bad for the $, seems like most of the stuff is easy/relatively inexpensive (aside from the seats and bumper cover). Job #1 - replace that dash fascia....ugggh.

Nice score! Glad you got a Vig and Andy finally sold his! Did the newp's come along for that price?

And my old wheels looks really good on there, although I'm much happier with the Rk's I've got now

And hows the tune running on there? This was one of my early tunes, and being so I wasn't as aggressive as I should have been. PM me if you want the latest and greatest.

Yes it should. (Btw I finally installed your fogs in my NG, they work very well, looks much better now)

Nice score with that Viggen, I had been contemplating buying it. Wish your 9k was doing better though
