I'm looking at a 1998 9-3 SE turbo convertible which I'm thinking of buying. But how can I defintively tell what variant of turbo it is? As I understand it, it could be any of three - Low Pressure (154bhp), Full Pressure (185bhp) or HOT (200bhp). It has a turbo meter, if that helps, although I don't think there are any pressure units marked on the meter. Nothing on the engine to indicate (that I can see). I have the UK Reg Certificate which says "9-3 SE TURBO". It also gives me the VIN and Engine Number. Would they help me? Would a SAAB dealer be able to check, if I asked him nicely? Thanks Steve
