Bonga Posted June 16, 2019 Share Posted June 16, 2019 Have this car at my brother's from before Christmas. Saab b204 engine. Loads of goodies. But it's a bit rough. Needs a proper tidying up. The intention was finishing the hatch before I even looked at this but the hatch needs a power of welding so thought I'd hit this one and try and get a few track days this summer the way it is. I basically had a quick look at it and then took it to the testing station. It obviously failed. Wheel bearing, wee bit of welding, water in scoosher bottle, wheels catching brake Flexi when turning and a number plate. Few advisories brake pipes to be clipped, tyres stretched on rims. All done, road legal now. Took it out a spin but something isn't right with the engine. Revs fine stationary but under load it sounds like a rev limiter at around 3000rpm. I think the ECU is limiting it for some reason. Although it's getting full boost up to this point 1.5 bar. Needing loads done to get it the way I want it but it's a start. 1st I need to sort the brake set up. It's got ap racing brakes but it has to run 25mm wheel spacers to stop the wheels hitting the caliper. Which then makes the wheel hit the arch when on lock. Would be ok with 400 arches. Might swap them with my other car(calibra turbo/Audi discs) or sell them. Next the suspension at the back is excessively high and the front is too low. Seems random.
