i first swapped a phase 1 r5 gtt for my mates saab 900t sensonic, the 5 needed a new turbo and the 900 needed scrapping! but anyway, the first time i took the 900 for a spin i wound the actuator arm right in and hammered it on an army airfield and the power was unreal and from then on ive always wanted to use the engine in my favourite car, a carabic blue corsa gsi.
plan was to do it all for a grand and getting a gsi for that dollar, theres more chance of urinating on the sun! so ive ended up with another tigra as i currently drive a black redtop tigra and im more than happy with the performnce and looks.
ive used a B204E with hpt head and manifold and ive got a few turbos to play with. looking to be around 280 bhp when complete as im using an f20. when that goes ill get an f28 a gt35r and be looking for 430ish bhp
hopefully the car will be at pv this year but if not ill be bringing the redtop regardless.
pictures are on photobucket and progress is about 60%
im keen to learn and also help so if anybody else is attempting a saab conversion ill share any info i can
cheers and happy modding.
see you on the m1
