Get in here my northern european brothers.
>a country where the police are now literally forbidden by themselves to release information about height, ethnicity and skin color regarding people suspected/convicted of doing crime to avoid pointing out certain ethnic groups as more attracted towards the criminal lifestyle
You make some ok cars, but fuck me if your society isn't going to shit and also most likely will be taking mine with it...
I only half count since mine was put together in italy
I like your country, ethnic-swedish culture, language and everything, and you're also a lot more sensible concerning cars, motorcycles and snowmobiles in terms of price, modification, taxation and so on.
Still... stuff has changed over the past few years, and not for the better
And hey; I actually have owned a swedish car
I was looking into getting one of these beauties. Is it worth it anon?
Gotta give more info for anyone to make even the slightest guess if it is or isn't...
Where are you?
What are they asking for it?
Condition of tires?
And so on
I currently live in the Midwest.
I haven't looked into it much but most around my area are $2000-2500. I need to dig and find exactly what I'm looking for I just wanted to know if they're reliable. I only drive about 40 miles a day back and forth to university.
I used to own one
OH MY GOD I'M GOING TO HAVE ONE TOMORROW
PREVIOUSLY OWNED BY A SAAB MECHANIC
Had one a red '89 until a few months ago.
They are solid and luxurious for the time. Faster and more modern than 240 but also uglier. Quite reliable, but make sure it has been maintained at least somewhat. Fucking fun when the turbo kicks in, but awful MPGs (I got maybe 18 avg) Just be aware that you're getting a late 80s/early 90s turbo'd car.
Here she is
Doubt there are even 300 in Canada. Owner seemed trustworthy and very knowledgeable, did some autocross with it. He added a new steering rack and rear sway to eliminate torque steer. Lots of go power. Really easy to drive, never stalled despite having only a couple of hours worth of stickshift time on an old truck. Had an oil pan leak that got fixed, front springs are a bit worn, has some scratches/tiny dent on passenger door. 90k miles/140k km.
He's mulling over the trade right now, but he said my car was in gr8 shape. Fingers crossed.
>here she is
Also insurance premium is lower than my Cobalt
do NOT put any engine cleaning stuff in the crankcase.
Chances are the PCV has been updated, if not don't worry as it has most likely only had synthetic. Sludge was only an issue with conventional oil, prolonged change intervals and city driving.
If you are concerned though, you will need to drop the oil pan, clean that, inspect and clean the oil pickup.
it's the most hoon per dollar you could ever buy
>not getting a T5 and throwing it in your 240
it's like you're not even trying
>finding a turbo 240 in any condition
>finding any vintage turbo redblock
>spontaneous human combustion
>highly unlikely things for $500, Alex
Maybe it's different in Scandia but in the burger states this is extremely unlikely. I've seen more 60's Mustangs than turbo 240s
I've seen two, ever; one when i was like 15, and the other one is some boomers baby. Junkyards are however filled with T5s from 850s for cheap
yeah, Sweden here. there are lots of them. 240 Turbo was never really a volume car, but can still be found without too much trouble
link is one of our biggest websites (run through google translate or something could help) for used cars and other shit, 9 240s on sale right now
manual Saab is not actually that rare
and a hopped-up NG900 or OG9-3 is better than Viggen (T5 master race), not to mention 9000 Aero
t-too many labels. labels have lost all meaning now...
>this is now a gay dude in a skirt and scarf that likes to finger women for allah
okay back to normal
>you'll accept an extra tip, i hope?
DIS GRILLS ALL RIGHT
Drove up to Dahlonega earlier and met a really cool modded volvo c30 on the touge.
Best drive to school ever.
Do you have a saab or a volvo
Generally any tuning on a turbo car is gonna be good
not so much on an NA
For me tuning had a huge benefit for the 2.8t V6
something like +80hp and 100ft-lbs of torque
and yeah it does give that kinda power
Hey guys I'm thinking about purchasing a Saab, possibly one of these ones
What do you guys think?
I wanted to like it I really did. The damn ETM gave out on me after I already fixed it and I just can't bring myself to buy one from xemodex for 500$. I donno. Maybe when i calm down a little about it I'll rethink it. I did drive it across the entire country and back with minimal problems but it just gives me hell intermittently and I just don't trust it anymore.
Last time it stalled on my while I was nose out into an intersection. My asshole hasn't unpuckered yet.
>>14241139 <this is mine
ipd for misc. shit, elevate for exhaust, tune and cosmetics, snabb for internals such as intake pipe and FMIC. viva also has a few nice little upgrades as well. i actually have a t5 engine in my R to run higher boost. t5s are awesome to build on.
a t5 from an 850 or v70 (u want 850 tho, not throttle by wire) is super cheap, you could probably pick one up from a junkyard for $300-500, and the swap itself is well documented on turbobricks.com and other sites like
>will a t5 upgrade well
easy bolt on power and turbo upgrades, all mostly self-contained and under $100
there isn't a thread link, it's a custom tune my buddy did through can-bus for me. there's a guy with a swedespeed thread about his 500-hp R that did a similar thing, it's called "representing 500-hp R from russia" or some shit.
anyway, my mods:
>snabb big FMIC (full kit)
>snabb intake pipe
>elevate air intake
>swapped 2005 t5 engine and shimmed
>running 20 psi on elevate tune
>elevate 3.5" DP catback exhaust with 3" elevate muffler
>OEM sport kit
those are the go-fast stuff. other shit i did:
>team dynamics 18" wheels
>delrin subframe bushings
>ipd chassis braces
>kenwood dnx-1850 (i think?) HU
>audi s4 MAF
>ALL hoses replaced with silicone
>aeromotive fuel pump upgrade
my next step is to put in a bigger turbo and go from there. but that's a few years down the line. i've used mostly OEM parts and i've made the thing super reliable and amazing to drive. i'll never want another car lol.
it's all good man, volvo tuning isn't a huge thing but those of us that do are hardcore as fuck. some good forums are turbobricks, swedespeed, etc. you'll find both mod lists and maintenance help from guys who know these things inside it. it's expensive but it's sooo worth it.
The 02 v70 is pretty meh. Has enough hp to fuck over ricers tho
I'd go with the 9-5 aero wagon.
The 9-3 has a nice list if parts, but its always a bit troubling to buy a modded car. Also I doubt its female driven with those mods. Yes some girls are into cars but it is rare. Also shit hanging from mirror and wheel cover are earning signs.
