    Here is another car I detailed, a 1999 911 (996) Carrera 4 with a 6 speed manual. I have always loved Porsches so this was a joy to work on and spurred me to do a bit extra for the owner. I figure that if I save time by having less surface area to work on, I would make up for it by spending some...

    This week my life took a turn for the worst and thankfully I have my best friends family who treat me like their own son. To sum up what happened my mom is a little bit off kilter and likes to pick fights about everything. She enjoys telling me I am a failure and bashing my best friend/gf. I...

    I am going to be getting a Vtune soon so I thought I would dyno the car with the stock map. Here are the results. And here is a little video I took.

    So, I washed the car at school today and had to go to the grocery store so I hopped in the car and when with a friend. The car drives perfectly; no hesitations, hiccups, or CELs (yay!) so we park. I leave to go back to school and have this one straightaway where I like to give it the beans to...

    Hello everyone, I am in desperate need of the back half of a stock exhaust system for my Aero. It doesn't need to be anything too special, just enough to get me through inspection and then to serve as a template for my custom 3" later this summer. Let me know what you have and for how much. Thanks!

  14. Car Problems? NG900 or old 9-3 Only
    Any Albany NY weekend warrior mechanics? I'm trying to get back into the Saab world ;] I found a high mileage Viggen that looks as if it need's a new slave if not a new clutch. If anyone has a garage in the area and could help me out you'd have my undying love, lots of beer, and great tales of...

    I know most people probably don't want to hear a long drawn out rant by me so I will do my best to keep it short. I shipped my car to California via enclosed car carrier because I thought that would mean my car would be taken care of between CT and CA. I spent the better part of 70+ hours going...

    A month ago my Viggen kicked a P0420 CEL. I put in a new rear 02 sensor and all was good until yesterday. I got under it and checked the sensor and the downpipe bolts - they are tight. When searching the forums - common consensus is that this is the 02 again. Having a hard time with the 02...

    For sale is a brand new stainless REMUS exhaust (cat to tip). Probably the last new one in existence. This exhaust will fit SAAB 9-5 from 99-01 and up to 2003 with very slight modification to look perfect. You will have to shorten one of the pipes an inch or two to make it look right...nothing...
