What else was done to the engine? Was it blued and bored? Does it use the original turbo? Obviously the valve cover and cassette top was reworked... enamel or epoxy? Original breaks or something like Brembro's.....

|tuner4life||what besides the LSD is done to the trans? I can't seem to keep these transmissions together at stock power. I can't imagine they last long at 500hp?|

I already installed a rear seat in the Troll for that purpose.

Hahaha, I'm at work and figured I'd post some details later.
Its 100% racecar right down to the fuel pump switch on the dash and the ignition/pump kill switch below the rear taillight. The build quality is top-notch from what I can see. The fuel pump is LOUD. Surprisingly, the engine and exhaust sound is NOT as loud as the Trollspeed 900. It arrived in Brooklyn early Monday morning and I haven't even driven it around the block yet. Can't wait to put some miles on it and report back to you all.
Previous owner Matt Johnson is a really great guy and a really knowledgeable SAABnut. He bought the car directly from the guys at Automotion a year or so ago and hasn't put more than a few tanks worth of gas in it since. He replaced the GT3706R, oil lines and brake lines, drove it a few times for kicks but mostly it stayed under cover in a beautiful insulated barn.
Apparently it has around 500hp and was a joint build between SQR and the Automotion guys. The clutched-LSD is a specialty product from Sweden. Matt has shared a bit with me but there is a lot more information to decipher and disseminate.

You can't just post pics like this and not tell us about it, come on!
I saw pics of the outside when the last owner had it, I never would have expected there to be that much interior in there.
