Saab scene obsolete? We have 8 modified NG900/9-3's in Claremont alone.

Anyways, what's with the screen name?

Turbo lag?! ... These cars build boost almost immediately.

Coming in a little sideways, ain't ya Saabhater? Hang out here and maybe you'll learn how to make that thing run right. Some of these guys are gettin 300 HP real easy with a cold air intake, 3" Downpipe, and ECU programs. Some are gettin 500HP with 30 pounds of boost and a bunch of money. Don't nobody here tell him 'bout that there dyno day comin up. He might start to like that car that Government Motors had their fingers into.

Parts aren't all that expensive... Best route for you would be a 3" downpipe, open intake, fmic, saabsport exhaust, td04 15T turbo, and stage 4. It'll be plenty of "go" for the average driver. But be warned, you'll get bored of it very quickly and be tempted to go bigger...

Or you can just go the route of a Holset turbo, injectors, tune, fmic, exhaust, fuel pump, etc...

Here's a good start for you....

These cars don't do "show" very well. It always sounds better on paper than it looks in execution.

Honestly, I would go to epping to see other cars run...but I wouldn't run mine only because its basically stock and in need of an aftermarket exhaust and stage 1 tune....

I have already used genuine saab for some basic stuff...but remember I am a college student returning to college within the next month...I will probably work during school...and I get paid by the army so maybe I can invest in that fmic and aftermarket bumper...

just run it. give you a good baseline to compare those future upgrades to. I mean why not run? you would be surprised at what you do on the track.

and why do you only want stage 1? what do you have against stage 2? not trying to slam you but like people told me going stage 1 would have just equaled me getting stage 2 as 1 just makes you want 2 that much more...
