Hey ERP nice letter in Turbo magazine!!

Hey Eric,

I read your letter in the latest copy of Turbo magazine. Well written, hopefully it can bring more attention to us Saab modifiers.

It was a rather long letter, I almost didn't read it until I notice "900 SE". He went on about how Saabs are a very solid and affrdable foundation for modifying. He mentioned Yankton's project as well as what I believe is a 400 plus hp 9-5 out West.

If you are near a magazine stand/store have a look at the letters section, you can't miss his letter.

I believe so, I had never bought the magazine before. I needed change and the store I went to insisted that I buy something so I grabbed the magazine. I thought it was pretty funny when I opened it up and there was a letter concerning Saabs.

so If i put a 2.3 Valve Cover on my 2.0/2.1 that makes me have a Viggen motor?

He has a 2.0 block bored or something to a 2.2L with a 2.3 head I believe. The VC is just from a Viggen - that car only laid down 240whp and like 265ft/lbs torque - pretty good, but looking at that motor and car I'd expect a lot more

so u r telling me that all those civics that say type r on them are type rs? and all the other cars with badges on them means that thats what they r..... it would not be worth the money to put a viggen motor in a c900, with all the electronics,and doesnt jeff have a distributor and wires, something viggens never had... c'mon dude there are so many conflicting things in the article about jeff's car man.... a 2.1liter viggen?

Eric,

Media people often complain that they don't get many well-written letters that show both knowledge and passion. That letter had both.

Excellent job...

Wow Eric..

Excellent article. I just want to say thank you VERY much for the acknowledgement to our forum. I think that as well as the numbers you showed, will spark a many others to check out Saabs and Saab forums.

Very nice. Keep it up man.
