If you were checking in in the last 36 hours, you would have read that I’ve agreed to purchase a 1985 Saab 900 Aero. Quite appropriate given that it’s the month of C900 loving here.
I put a couple of photos up on site the other day (see link above), but Simon has emailed me a few more, which I thought I’d post as well.
A few more specs as well.
Because it’s the 1985 model it’s got a little more pep than other Aeros. it’s a pre-cat model and came standard with 175hp and 273 Nm of torque. Simon’s already fitted a 1991 gearbox to it and a 2.5 inch exhaust. A turbosmart bypass valve is already fitted so I don’t need to remove the Forge unit from the Viggen in a hurry and the turbo is currently running around 12 pounds of boost.
I’m not allowed to plan any mods due to financial constraints, but I can’t help thinking about them anyway….
So if things go well I’m considering one of those uprated intercoolers from Jak Stoll, some bigger injectors and a mild re-map. Some SuperAero rims would go quite nicely, but I don’t like my chances of finding any let alone affording them for some time.
Anyway, like I said, no mods for some time.
