Tuned by Mike D!

I took a ride over to visit Mike D last night. I called him up since I wasn't too far from his place and he fit me in for a tune. I am very satisfied with Mike and his work. The car pulls much better now and feels like it should. We took a rip down the highway and noticed it wasn't quite rite so we stopped at the parts store and grabbed a new set of plugs and installed them. Then went for another rip down the highway and it was running much better. He also replaced some of the old vacuum lines for me. He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I'd recommend him!

Thanks again Mike I was smiling the whole way on my 1:30 minute ride home!!

If this is the guy with 9-3SE w/3" exhaust that I met, your car sounds very good and looked like it was moving pretty good.

Its funny you mention that I met a guy at the gas station the other day on a triumph and got talking with him and it turned out he had previously owned an ng900 he had done tuning on.

I think if I get a bike it has to be triumph

Visited Mike D this past weekend, had my six year old SQR tune updated by Mike. I think tuning has come a long way in six years...

Car is running much better now, power delivery is much smoother and drive-ability is much improved. The old tune had all of the power coming on very late in the rpm curve. Mike definitely knows his Saabs and the software. He even followed up today with a call to make sure I was satisfied.

Also he replaced my intake pipe, for some reason my car had the TD-04 turbo but did not have the larger pipe.

I would highly recommend Mike for anyone looking for a tune or who has an older tune, you may want Mike to take a look and see if he can improve it.

just a side note guys, while this is a great place to review mikeD and his awesome tunes you may want to also hit up the reviews button on his profile icon or on his saablink profile. that way anyone looking him up will know how awesome he is and wont have to search for a thread and read through it.

just an idea to add to this thread.
