|Sleepy7666||Yes it will. You also can use a lower micron KN filter.|

Will it fit?
Anyway, I am going to 5W 30!
Thanks, guys (Nick & Saab9-3Se)!!!!

Sigh, nothing wrong with mobil 0w40, its factory fill in the porsche 911 turbo. People post these comments with no backing to prove anything. Head over to Bobistheoilguy.com go to the Used oil analysis section or do a search, lots of info on 0w40 from mobil to show its a stout oil.
If you want the best protection, Motul, Redline 5w40 have some of the best base stocks out there and both are regarded as a great street/racing oils for high powered engines. Motul has given me the best oil analysis thus far (lab stated my Saab was one of the nicest wearing Saab they have seen). I am currently running Redline 10w40 and will have an analysis in a month or so (track day on this oil).
You can also get a bigger oil filter which will allow you to add more oil. If you have a stock DP this will limit the size. If you have a GS DP you can add almost 2 liters to the sump (sticky on SC under oil), or search here as I may have posted my thread regarding the giant oil filter I use.

Did you change viscosity when you changed to the Castrol?

Stock system is just fine for the power and revs. Run a factory filter, 10-40 castrol GTX or 5-30Mobil 7500 blend. Oil cooler is fine watch it on the dyno (when tuning with lots of time at high output) or low speed high effort track use. (Gearbox will get there before oil normally) Street keep the stock cooler. There is such a thing as too cold of oil hurting things.
The 2.3 will make the pistons speeds become a problem earlier than a 2.0

Viggen better lubrication
Higher revs and raw power demand better lubrication than stock.
What can be done for a Viggen for better lubrication? My mechanic advised for something like "delete balance shaft or chain" (I didn`t fully followed).
Beside using Mobil 1 0W 40 fully syntetic oil, I really don`t know what else to do.
As usually, your expertize is greatefully awaited.
P.S. Yeah, it was not my pistons, it was a bearing from the crakshaft, lacking a proper lubrication. Damn! I almost focked my whole engine block!
