Get the CrMo retainers and keepers, the stock ones have been known to pull thru.

I have been driving my car all summer now without any problems at all..
I just tucked it away for the winter.
I'm gonna do som minor changes during winter. 1. relocate the oiltemp sender to the side of the tray out of harms way. 2. relocate the tempsender for the FI unit to the tray and not in the airstream like now.
do you think I can use the one oiltemp sender for both or??..
3. i'm gonna change the downtube from beeing 3" ending in 2x2" to 3" ending in 2x3"

Sweet setup. How much boost are you running with that turbo and what is your injector size ?

Nice work.

Wow. What a nice set up. Inginuity at it's finest. I'm most impressed with the plenum. Did you ever measure the volume of the intake?.

How much power do you think you have at this point. How's the driveability?. Did you use the SAAB ecu?. Maybe you already stated that...

Good job.

Eddie.

yes the plenum is made with correct volume.

i'm guessing around 150 HP. the drivability is great at any speed.
I'm using the SAAB ecu.
