Cool 1999 9-3 Build Thread

I posted this in the new member introductions but I figured I would start a build thread here so I can keep tracking my progress. I bought my 1999 9-3 2 years ago originally as a grocery getter for driving around town when I was working from home but then got quickly sucked in to the Saab performance world. Many of the parts on this car I've bought on this forum. Here's what I've done so far:

- Rebuilt engine ~5k miles ago by Swedish Auto Sports in Cherry Hill, NJ
- Viggen clutch and pressure plate
- Taliaferro open intake with K&N cone filter
- Forge twin piston BOV - Jak Stoll Performance steering rack clamp
- silicone intake bend
- Mitsubishi td04-15t turbo with Taliaferro high flow conversion pipe
- custom intercooler
- Saab Sport exhaust
- Stage 2 tune from Ryan King that T5 Suite rates at 300bhp
- Taliaferro 6-point subframe brace
- Taliaferro 22mm rear ARB
- Taliaferro poly engine/trans mounts
- Eeuroparts.com poly suspension bushings & control arms
- blue silicone intake/intercooler/coolant/vacuum hoses
- Pioneer AppRadio 3
- Kenwood Excelon mono block sub amp
- 12" Kenwood Excelon Subwoofer
- Kenwood Excelon 4 channel amp
- Polk Audio 6.5" component front speakers
- Polk Audio 3-way 6x9 rear speakers
- Viggen steering wheel
- carbon fiber dash & window switch pack
- leather e-brake boot & shift boot
- custom black floor mats
- 20% tint
- yellow tinted fogs
- black honeycomb grille insert
- clear side markers
- Saab BBS RK1 wheels
- Michelin Pilot Sport AS3 tires
- drilled & slotted gold anodized Viggen brake upgrade with ceramic pads
- Fixed antenna
- Stainless Valve cover dress up kit
- PLX Devices DM-6 multigauge installed in light switch hole
- PLX Devices wideband a/f sensor module

I'm waiting for warmer weather to install the suspension I have sitting in the trunk:
- Taliaferro poly filled hardened strut mounts
- Vogtland springs
- Koni sport adjustable shocks

This is from the Craigslist add when I first bought it:
