yeah i've always been disappointed by the turn out of 99's at shows. i think there was only two or three at SCD, and none of them were anywhere near "show" condition. glad to see another one getting put back on the road.

Of all the Saabs I own, this is the unsellable, non-tradeable one.

Eventually it's going to get a full rolling restoration, but for the moment I will be thrilled just have it mobile again.

Keep me in mind on this. It was a nice drive.

Good luck Greg!

Very nice, good luck on the project. My dad has a 78 turbo hatch that he got for parts for his 76 Turbo coupe project same color as yours, just with a few rust holes and stuff =P

Just a few pictures Gregg of the progress. With another cancelation today we were able to get the motor set in. The fellow who removed this motor should be hit in the nuts many times. The thing looked like it was pulled with a tractor loader and a side cutters for tools.

If only I had known at SOC 07, Moon, I could have arranged to have had a pretty clear shot that night.

is there any way to use an add-on/under-dash mounted a/c unit (i.e. like the ones used on 60's Ford Mustangs, and 50's Chevys?? I dont know anything about these cars - just a question.. I thought you could basically add them to almost anything.

Oh, and I would kill to have that car.. So cool.

The cooling systems on these early turbos was marginal at best. When you added A/C it really made them run hot. And when these cars ran hot they cracked heads. The whole turbo charging technology was so new then that these cars were far from trouble free. I owned one in the mid 80's and from experience the less you tax the cooling the better you are.

you can't imagine the mess he made of this car. At first I though GA bought it with the motor removed. Last night he told me differant. The brake lines were pinched shut from the motor hitting them during removal, the clutch hose was just cut, most of the wire connectors are going to have to be redone as the look to have been just grabbed and pulled, the CV boots were just ripped instead of undoing the clamps, ect. There are still some very important parts missing too. The cooling fans that are specific to this car are gone. I'm guessing 1/2 out time spent on this car is in the junk yard looking for things that are missing

Well, if that is the former mechanic's technique for handling engine bays, I count myself doubly lucky.

I've had to prioritize the things I'm angry about these days. I'm sure I'll get back to being angry about this soon.

I'm guessing the large external component next to the turbine section is the wastegate? Very interesting to see the first turbo motors as I've not seen one before.

How long did it take saab to include intercoolers as a stock component in the turbocharging system?

I looked at an '84 T8 yesterday, and it did not have the intercooler. Maybe they phased them in? I thought they only came on 16v's though.

Maybe they were optional? I seriously was looking at one yesterday, and it had the old, bit "TURBO" pipe from the turbo to the TB. It was MY84, built in 83.
