Well, *my* 1999 9-5 has the 2.3 litre 4, so it's pure Saab. The V6 that saab used is a GM design, but I have no clue what other cars it's in. > Could > someone please provide clarification into the origins of the 9.5 V6 > engine? Is it a recommended powerplant? Compared to the Saab 4, not particularly. It's more of a marketing thing for people who want more pistons, than for any performance, fuel economy, or longevity reasons. > Any help would be greatly > appreciated. Dave Hinz
