rcmdesign Welcome Mike! We talked at SOC '03. But finally I have been able to make contact with you. Hopefully I can learn more about all of the modifications you have made to your car...What is your HP up to now? Do you have a list of all your mods you could post for us? Thanks a lot!

Just ask those who have ridden in or driven MEATBALL. We will be making them for sale by the end of this year. We have not got a price on them at this time, but I will keep all informed.

Nice to have you aboard Mike. Welcome to the site. I personally have been an fan of your car for a while. I used to have many pictures of it, but then the link became unavailable. Some of the things I liked was the polished DI casset, and I believe it was the powder coated valve cover. I believe you also had a site selling power coated C900 valve cover as well. Do you have any more pictures, or information about some of the things you've done to your NG900?

saabindru900 i would be interested, but i want to see what the price tag is first. that piece can't be more than 150, and i am not willing to pay more than that on a 1 foot piece of tubing.

saabguy i always thought it was bad to have the air go 90 degrees, i was tought to have it take gentle turns

would it be possible to fabricate something on top of the throttle body that looked like a pancake but thicker? that way the air could sorta spiral around in it, or just chill and wait to be sucked in?

saabindru900 yea, that intake is pretty nice, i wish i could fabricate stuff like that. maybe i should take a welding class

Blaque I'd be interested in purchasing the peice that connects the pipe to the throttle body that way I could make a larger intake pipe going to it.

I'd also be interested in buying the chromed top cassette he has, and getting my headers dipped. I think he's able to do all that.

Direct Intake Tube

For those of us who don't have a *cough* turbocharger in our early model Saabs, I thought some of you might be interested in a tube that goes directly into the throttle body from the stock intake tubing. I have attached an image below. I met Mike Connolly a.k.a Meatball at the Saab Owners Convention last year, and he said he would be selling them soon. I haven't been able to get a hold of him since we last talked, but would anyone be interested in purchasing this?
