(Which is apparently pretty close >to the 205 turbo that the SE comes with; but that's not the Viggen yet.) You can get plenty of performance from an SE and "chip" it if you want. Add a sports exhaust, maybe a Viggen intercooler, and replumb the intake. Do the suspension if you like with better shocks and/or lower springs. HP wise, someone like Nordic can get you to 240hp for $2520. http://www.saabtuning.com/saabtuning/9-3/ You'll spend a lot less and have great performance... and be able to custom tune it the way you want. You still don't get the Viggen seats though. Bob
