  1. The 2.0 litre turbos get quicker steering or the opposite? Unfortunately, the electric assistanse takes the feedback away so keen drivers are better off with the turbo petrol engines (I mean the four cylinders, the V6 is too much for the front wheels)

  2. And check out that TTiD 80-120 figure. Matches the V6. It’s a killer….

    But the 150 TiD S with a Hirsch upgrade can already do it in 7.5 sec for the 80-120km/h and .2 of a second quicker on the 0-100km/h sprint than the TTiD. But the TTiD does have lower combined fuel consumption and a lower CO2 level

  3. Yes you are right in what you say about the TTiD Englisbob. Don’t get me wrong i can’t wait to get my hands on a TTiD and A Hirsch upgrade on it will prob push it to 210bhp, bring it on. But why doesn’t Saab push the Hirsch line of products a little more. From all the reports the TTiD is a great car to drive and i don’t doubt that fact. But what annoys me is the fact the 1.9 TiD S 150 with the Hirsch upgrade that has even better power figures and we have had access to the sort of power that all the journalists have being writing available to Saab for the last 2 years and from an official Saab partner. AMG and M Power are house hold names, I there is a volume difference but why can Hirsch not be the same.

  4. can you help me with the technical data of the camshaft synchronicity of a Saab 93 /2003 Linear?
    Thanks a lot.
