i know that the turbos saab uses in their cars...garrett (80's) and i beleive they have messed around with mitsubishi are extremly reliable. they made sure of this before they started producing turbos in the 900 in 1980..It is controlled by an APC system which allows differnt grades of fuel to be used and to control the overal operation of the turbo and engine..i have heard some people say that they have 200,000 on their first turbo and is still going strong...i have 95,000 on my turbo (195,000 on car)and the bitch can still boost very nicly. of course their occasions where people run into problems...Saab's reputation has been built around their long lasting powerful turbo engines. It is their leading edge in the market..you will know this when u throw it into 3rd and pass a car in an instant going 80mph. overall...is it worth it to get a turbo?...Hell ya...i love Saabs but i wont get one without..it is a costly repair when and if it goes but i gurantee u will get the satisfaction from it..let it idle 20secs before driving and let it idle 30 secs before shutting it off...change the oil and I promise you will love your Saab turbo for atleast half of the cars life...150-200k.(thats right..a saab is still a baby at 150k) GET ONE...u wont be dissapointed...Saabs fucking rule... brad 88 9000T (195,000) and have been able to out race 98 mitsubishi eclipses...a 4cyl plastic piece of shit that looks flashy..get a Saab and get the class.. sorry for my rambling on..i just whipped around some small, straight, and windy roads at 75-90mph (im sure the parents love to hear that one)... and I am just happy i own one..later brad the In article <39738152.4294091nopsam-server.optonline.net>, alang51nopsamo.com wrote: > I have been scouring the internet about info on a 9-5 Saab.
