First, you should realize that a front drive car is at a significant disadvantage compared to a rear drive car. Even a stock 185HP Saab has trouble keeping the front end on the ground in first and second gear with the throttle down. If your ego is such that you need to drag race then a front drive car is probably not the vehicle for you. Next, you should realize that you will blow away the Mustang at higher speeds but they are the sort of speeds that get your butt thrown in jail if you get nabbed by the law. If you want to see and example of what can be done with the Nordic kit, check out this (US-Rhode Island) Saab dealer who puts the kit on new 95 Aeros. The are the US rep for Nordic. Perhaps they've done some 0-60 and 1/4 miles times and have figures for you. Bob
