I have bought the Abbot Racing APC upgrade computer for my '95 900 SE coupe. The guy that runs the place is kinda flaky and it took him about 2 months to send me the computer, but he actually sent me the wrong one for my car, so I had to send it back and then he sent me a new computer (that worked). The computer actually adds more than 35HP...the one I got added around 65HP, my engine now produces around 250HP. Even with all the hassles to get the computer, it is definitely worth the money! When you punch the throttle it takes a little second for the turbo to build up some boost, but when that thing kicks in around 3,000RPM, it slams you against the seat! I estimate my 0-60 times to be around 5.4-5.5. I could not install the box myself because along with the new computer you have to install a new wastegate for the turbo. In order to install this piece I had to take it to my local SAAB specialist because you need a special guage to measure and reset the boost. But it is pretty easy to install the computer itself (it is located under the passenger side glove box). So all in all, the guy was difficult to deal with, but the computer does add a lot of noticeable power! Get the computer if you can afford it! It is worth it! =) Hope this helps! -- Ryan Jones |Erebus| Indigoxznopsamcom ICQ UIN: 4769001
