True but for the 16v SAAB lump the compression ratio is too high to really go beyond that figure. 15% is a good figure I can remember from my mini days. > I would have > reccommended a bigger turbo, t3/t4 perhaps. I can honestly see no point whatsoever in replacing the turbo already fitted to the 16v SAAB motor (not LPT motors). The standard turbo will easilly pump out in excess of 1 bar and I have seen people running 19 psi out of it. The problem with the C900 comes from the fact that the intercooler is crap. The water cooled intercooler used by Abbott racing is probably the way to go, or perhaps water injection. > I didn't see headwork on that list...Call me. > > Steve Hall > Hall Heads Nice plug for yourself but headwork would also be a waste of money on a SAAB turbo motor, just as nology hotwires is on possibly every car.
