A few days ago I got my first car. I got a SAAB 900se 2.0L Turbo with a 5 speed manual transmission. 82k miles and I paid 2500. Driving the car is very similar to driving my brothers BMW 318i (quiet, comfortable) but it is a lot quicker :lolflag:

Wow, congratulations! Looks to be in good shape:) Nice powerful engine that can give you a lot more horsepower easily (if you care about that stuff).

yeah, I though about the viggen intercooler and and viggen (mitsubishi) turbo, but I figure that I should wait a little and save up.

I wouldn't worry about forced induction, stick to nice clean powerful natural aspiration mods. Exhaust, pullies, intake, injectors, sparkplugs, etc. etc.

If you want forced induction, it's usually best to get a brand new block and start from there.

EDIT: ohhhh, I see it's already turbo charged, nevermind!

Then I'd buy yourself a new intercooler and get the most you can out of the turbo you have!

Lets see a picture of the airbox, you can probably just fit a standard cone airfliter into your airbox, that's what I did with my Teggy.

K&N filters are seriously the cheapest modification you can do for the most gain
