I've seen that name b4. How about a stage 2 ECU, fast, not cheap, but will do the job.

not be be cruel, but a wrx is in a totally different league than the viggen on the highway...not to mention it was a wagon, a little extra weight. I have a viggen with just a new intake and catback, and i beat a WRX sedan by about 3 or 4 car lengths. He had a Greddy FMIC, 3" cat back, Intake, and probably a few other things. Now he has a turbo back exhaust and a new piggy back ecu...so he will probably smoke me. Once u get past the line....all that matters is wheel horsepower and weight. The WRX is heavier than the viggen and probably puts down 35 whp less. I do not know for sure, but they usually put down 180 somethin whp stock. Viggens generally put down 210 something or even 220 whp. Lastly.....torque. Viggen probably has about 60 more tq.

your not being cruel...'o4 wrx waggon comes with 224hp 220hp some were around there...where they loose power is on the freeway, because all the power has to be distributed to all four wheels...were as our FWD saabs get power more directly...and my HOT came with 205hp...but yes i know a viggen with a little work even stock could burn one...but my 9-3 did as well...so i am saying i need a real test...racing a viggen....and i think the waggons olny gaind around 80lbs or so....

please correct me if i am wrong about anything.....
