Looks like fun.

With the downpipe install, take your time taking off your stock one, dont want to brake a turbo stud, spray some PB blaster on the studs before hand

When I did my intercooler it was a major pain in the ass, once again just take your time and things should go smoothly. maybe get some new clamps, I used T-bolt clamps, my stock clamps were very rusted and im glad I bought new ones.

sorry for not writing sooner i sold some parts and with the help of alot of over time i bought brand new ones. I AM NOT TALKING BAD ABOUT GENUINE SAAB IN THIS POST BUT REALLY WHAT THE HELL.

so after a larger order for a
T7 Ecu Calibration - Taliaferro
9-3 / 900 Bushing Kit Step1
3in Downpipe for 900 9-3 94-02 Version 2
bsr Cat back for Viggen 2.5in
and some hardware for a stearing brace and anit rool bar

so after talking very in depth about how i didnot want to use a 3.5 fpr for my tune, and after being told that it will not be needed the ecu came in today with a 3.5 fpr with it saying it is needed. like what was all of my convo and what i wrote done used for where they even lissing to me??

another sucky thing is that bsr muffler is dented right on the tail pipe. the part that freally gets me is that they opened the box from bsr when it got to there shop and then they cramed all of the other items that i orders in there. if they would have just looked 2 seconds they would have seen it.

but what ever all and all every thing elce looks good the dp is very clean the headware worked perfictly and the bushings look mint. all and all i hope every thing works out and that i will have some more photos for you guys soon
