Sorry guys but i'm new to the mk3 thing. This whole saab power thing is really intriging. I want 2 find out more as i can lay my hand on a 900 fairly easy. Is it an easy thing to do.

im sure its the wiring side of thing that is the hard part , the mechanical side of things shouldnt be beyond the capabilitys of an average mechanically minded person.

As i said i can get my hands on a 900 altho i'm not sure if its turbo power or not. Dont like the sound of wiring tho. I dont really do auto electrics lol.
