Intakes for the 2.5 V6?

Hey all, just wondering what options I have for intakes for my 96 2.5 V6. I see a lot of stuff for the little wimpy 2.3's, but not very much for my .5 . Any links to sites with pipes specifically for 2.5 N/A would be very welcome. Thanks.

-Mason

Wimpy? Watch your words around here

I think www.genuinesaab.com has a kit for the 2.5 which comes from www.speedparts.se

Yeah, I've looked there, I only found one for the 2.3, which won't fit for me . Could I get a link please? Thanks in advance.

I dunno after that "wimpy" comment...


Call up Nick genuinesaab.com he might be able to get a hold of it for you. It's a nice kit that includes a heatshield available from www.speedparts.se, Nick is the U.S. dealer for them. It's listed on this page:

http://www.speedparts.se/prod/sp_filter_open_air.shtml

This one:

900 2,5 V6

Interesting fact, the V6 model actually has 10 less hp stock than the 2.0 turbo, and 25 more hp than the stock 2.3 engine. I'll bet some of our N/As are close in HP by now to a stock V6.
It's going to be hard to find upgrades for the v6, Mason, you're the first person I've ever heard of with the 6.

Heh, so I've found out. I e-mailed Steven at GenuineSaab and he told me that they don't have any intake kits, they'd have to order the one from SpeedParts, and it would take a month :\. I'm going to get it though I think.

I'm going to try and clean up the engine tonight, and I'll take some pics so you guys can see what it looks like :P. Also, any recommendations for an exhaust? I've been looking at a few, I want a catback, 2.5", with a nice tone, not too loud though, preferably under 4 bills. Any suggestions?

Depends on where you live. There's a place near me that will install an exhaust (you buy the muffler yourself separately) with a straight pipe from the cat back for about 90 bucks. The muffler I'm looking at is only about 80 bucks itself, so I'm looking at about 170-180 total with install. All the silencers will be removed, and it's a 2.5" pipe. I have this planned for the end of August, right after I leave for school.

Yup the V6 was the worst of all the models in terms of problems...

the 2.5 has it's problems, but they make an update kit that will correct the timing belt problems they all had. the rest of the 2.5 engine is pretty good! though it's no barn burner... thing is, 75% of the 2.5's are broken down already cause they never had the update

Hey, I was just kidding about the "wimpy" comment. I haven't had any problems with car yet, it's still going strong at 100k. The only repairs I've had done in 2+ years is the suspension because of a cracked spring (most likely overlooked when we bought the car).

It certainly is fun to have the civic/cavalier crowd challenge you once in a while . They have no idea what Saabs can do, even automatics :P.

Pic

Sorry for chiming in late, I have the 2.5L intake and it's a solid buy. Here's a pic:


It adds a noticable boost in HP and you can hear it sucking air in at the higher RPMs! You won't be disapointed.

-Tom

PS I've had my V6 for 10K miles and haven't had ANY major problems. The dealership will change the timing belt for you for free at certian intervals, I had mine done at 95K.

Enjoy
-Tom

Thanks for the heads up Tom, I'll see what I can do about my timing belt. The intake looks nice, can't wait to get it in 2-3 days . How does that heat shield attach on? And where did you find the resonator box?

Heatshield

The Heatshield didn't come with any pre drilled holes so I lined it up about where I wanted it and drilled new ones. I think I drilled through the mounting points for the stock air box, and bought some bolts and washers from the hardware store. After you get your box out you'll probably see what I mean. As for the resonator box, are you talking about the muffler? If so I just had a local muffler shop toss on a dynomax or flowmaster (can't quite remember) along with a chrome tip. The sound turned out great though, almost anything is better than the restrictive stock system.

Give us an update when you get it installed,
-Tom
