New pics as of today.  With the new job comes the final upgrades for stage 4, BIG front mount, 3" downpipe to 2.5" exhaust and software...will be good for 300-320hp at the crank and 350tq.

I did my own tune up and discovered the original plugs were pretty much black with carbon build up.  I also replaced the DI cassette and MAF.  Its cake compared to the GT and its rear plugs and everything being rusted.  I did it all in 45 mins.

Now since its in a perfect state of tune and with the boost controller the car is breaking its tires loose at 45mph in 2nd on dry pavement.  So adding 60hp and 80lbs of tq should be fun :)

Sexay! I've really grown to like Viggens. They're really the only Saab that I like... :banana

Les of European Car Magazine has emailed me about doing a feature, not a members rides type thing like I had in GMHTP with the GT.

The Northeast editor is being sent out to take pics including action shots, interior and engine shots for a 2-3 page spread next week.  I am excited about it and told people early on I could get this kind of exposure with the Vig.

Only reason the GT was in GMHTP was because I won their event.  The Vig is getting a feature due to the fact that its rare and something people wouldnt dare tune.  I also think Les is a Saab guy since my freind Kev's Viggen look a like also had a feature 3 months ago in the same magazine.

This will likely be out in April so keep your eyes open.

Hehe, Thanks you were the first person to ever ride in it.  Too bad that was 30hp ago and suspension mods :P

I used some steel wool and mothers buff ball and the old tip looks new.  The exhaust is a pain since the ones that are easy to get in the states arent stainless which I demand.  So I am holding out for the one I want which means being patient and likely buying one from over sees.


IN other news, I bought these due to a pothole killing 2 of my Fondmetals:



I am making up a custom center emblem as we speak featuring the Viggen thunderbolt surrounded by carbon fiber.  Should be the finishing touch in time for the magazine shoot Sunday.
