They didn't get it that the LPT ones (c900 at least) never had intercoolers. I explained that Saab actually equiped a basic UK FPT 900 16v with 12PSI and a 9.0:1 compression ratio, and had been doing so since 1884, unlike their 6-8PSI (depending on gear) High pressure models. I also explained that Saab engines with better intercoolers also push lots more boost through the standard engine internals once tuned. -- Carl Robson Car PC Build starts again. http://smallr.com/rz Homepage: http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
