-Stage 3 Mike D tune

Anyway that’s it. Thanks for your time.

Excellent Saab, Jacob! Thanks for sharing.
This Saab is well loved, having a great life!
Great looking with those EVO:s!
Must be a joy to drive with all them mod:s done 🙂
That’s a great looking 9-5 – and nice to see how it’s being treated. What’s the mileage on it? Where I live, 9-5s are used and abused – most have well over 100,000 miles on them and are not maintained. So it’s nice to see one in good shape for a change!
hey thanks guys. i do love this car and plan on driving it for 300K miles. i worry a bit about the extra stress that the mods put on the engine and drivetrain, so i stick to 3000 mile oil changes and i flush the tranny like every 15,000… and i tend not to floor it out of stop lights. it’s got just over 90,000 miles on it now. I drive 75 or so miles/day to work 6 days/week so the miles add up quick! all highway driving tho, which I think we all know is where saabs really shine. highways are the wild saabs natural habitat. i should definitely give a lot of credit to my girlfriend’s brother Dave, who is a pro mechanic and took me through the big jobs, and to Mike D for the great tune and plenty of advice along the way. And yeah Luke I see a ton of beat up saabs; cars that have seen many winters and kids and pets and stuff. well loved in their own way but i’m definitely gonna try to keep this one sharp! thanks again
