always - once you have more - what then would you want? MORE POWER! lol I mean - if there was bolt on's to have 1000whp - there'd be someone with it regaurdless of price - u just gotta figure how much is enough.... :twisted:Boxerchip said:someone needs to do this and make a kit.... I mean an AWD viggen... could it get any better?
If you have the 2.0 Big Turbo they actually have the same exact setup in all-wheel drive you would have to get a smashed in front four-wheel drive 2.0 Saab X and it will be compatible the 2009 Saab 2.0 all-wheel drive 6 speed manual 2003 Saab 2.0 front wheel drive 6-speed manual they're almost the same setup yeah you might have to weld a bracket or something but I don't think it should be that hard but if you want to really do this you would have to get a donor car that would be the cheapest route find one for around $1,000 smashedJeez.....you'd need most of a new drivetrain and engine, unless you could source one with a transverse engine (maybe a DSM?) ...
a rear drive axle and diff (or axles if you don't do an old-school solid rear end like a Mustang, which fits)
new, fabricated axle brackets (readily available and easily welded on)
new rear suspension mounts mounted precisely (any errors would really whack out the handling)
center diff and drive shaft (this is the tricky part...)
there's probably more...I'm just going off the top of my head...)
possible area of exploration: find out if there is an available center diff that is small enough to fit with the current Saab center drive axle, enabling you to keep the front of the car stock. My suspicion is that if there was an easy way to do this, it would have been done.
So...let's say you can get this going, you'd need to seriously hop up the engine to compensate for the 25% drivetrain loss you'd see -- and that's if your setup was as efficient as production models. So if you got your 9-3 up to 250bhp, you'd show about 185 whp...which is what you started with. (check my figures on this..)
After all was said and done....you would have spent enough time and money to buy a used WRX.
