hey guys... do you like ....saabs????
Wednesday, February 20, 2013 3:28 PM
Hey guys been a while since ive been on here since i sold the green z24 and the joeydabomb deal fell through... but never the less i have found myself back in a gm platform... so 3 weeks ago i sold my expedition and put a down payment on a 2008 Saab 9-3 2.0T... its black and a nice upgrade from the cavalier... 2.0L turbo gm motor rated at 210hp fwd with a td04 turbo... 12.3 lb of boost and 14 lbs in sport mode... future plans for it are small but id like to do a FMIC, downpipe and exhaust, cai, and trifecta tune to about 300 hp...or at least in that ball parknot looking for crazy but just something fun to drive

As far as exterior it will stay stock... maybe add fogs, and some plastidip on the non black parts and rims... some HID's and thats it...plain and sexy..
The saab 9-3





The cav when sold

Nice Saab dude. Its hard to find Saabs that clean.
I seen a Saab a couple of days ago that i have never seen before. It was a sport hatchback model.Similiar to a subaru impreza sport hatchback. I liked to get one of those with 300hp.
Have fun with your new car and welcome back.

It was probably a 9-2x. Its the same as a Subaru Impreza with different badges. Thanks to GM owning a portion Fuji Heavy at the time.

I love Saabs and I seriously considered getting a 9-3 Vector but parts seem hard and expensive to get ever since the Saab factory in Sweden died. Beautiful car nonetheless.

Nope. Boxer. They pretty uncommon but super cool.

Thats a project for subaru forums not here ah?

carl the 9-2x had subaru engines in them....in 05 it had a n/a 2.5 version and turboed2.0 version.... in 06 it got a upgraded 2.5 n/a motor and a 2.5turbo upgrade as well....good luck finding one though....very limited run....like 10k or 11k i think..

and thanks...im def digging the saab so far... it has the 2.0L gm motor...ecotec... i cant believe i own a ecotec...LD9 4life...but boost is fun and its set up is very comparible to the cobalt ss/tc so parts arent super hard to find
