I can hardly wait to see the Viggen in person. I had my '94 900 SET in the shop today (as usual) and killed some time test driving the 9 3 and the 9 5. I am in love with the way my 94 Turbo zips out from under me whenever I tap the gas. I was a little disappointed with the 9 3 high output 200 hp model I drove. Yes, it is solid, but it lacked that zip that I have come to expect from a turbo. The salesman says that you will feel more torque when the car is broken in...I suspect a slower to engage turbo. Have they changed the way the turbo boost kicks in? I also drove the 4 cylinder 9 5 (gotta have a stick) and could hardly sense the turbo at all. I have to imagine the Viggen will be a blast with it's 2.3liter engine. Does anyone have one yet? A few questions: 1) Has anyone seen a HP rating for the Viggen? 2) Is the High Output turbo found on the 9 3 different from the 94 900 SET turbo? 3) Can I add the 200HP chip to my 900? 4) Has anyone seen color choices for the Viggen? Thanks! -geckonia
