There are a few head gasket problems on the 2.0 turbo. Saab changed the specs later on to allow more movement in this area. I don't think they started building engines with the new torque specs until '98. >Also what about the V6? I'd stay away unless it's a heck of a deal. They need a timing belt every 30K miles. They are harder to work on. They were not Saab engineered motors. Bob
