Look Fast, Go Fast.

Just got in an order of performance parts for my personal 9-5 from the good folks at Stuff looks great, and the quality of workmanship really is outstanding.

Performance stuff is such a small part of what I do, but it sure is fun! Looking to get 300hp out of the 9-5 come Spring, and this is the first step. These cars really are capable of some serious power without too much effort and $.

The stock downpipe looks almost comical next to the 3" stainless steel GenSAAB version. Noticed an immediate change in throttle response, and the turbo comes on instantly, no lag.

The intake pipe is also quite an improvement over stock. However, its benefits will not really be utilized until the engine computer software is re-written.

Hope everyone had a good holiday season.
