Hi Johan, my 900t (also US) has also only got 160 hp! Every 900t in Austria was rated 160hp as well! Thatīs nice for the tax, isnīt it? Well, Saab improved the power of the 900t in 1992 and increased the performance from 160hp to 175hp, when they equipped every 900 with a catalystic converter... that cost 5-10hp - but they didnīt tell everyone about that. I donīt know how much hp mine got, but it does the 0-100km/h little below 9sec. If you want to upgrade your APC to 185hp 98 octane fuel is recommended, but you also feel the difference with the standart APC box. So why should one pay for 175hp when one can also pay for 160hp?! -RCS- Johan LAUWERS : > Well, it is an official Saab item. > > I don't really understand that you have a 900 Turbo 16 and 'only' 160 HP. > In Belgium they were allways 175 HP.
