I haven't given up. Still going to do it all.

Also, while I am at it I should add altezza tail lights, a skull shift knob, fuzzy dice and interior delete.

I was told that Altezza style tail lights add like 7whp from weight reduction. The skull shift knob is just too cool to pass up!

Still working on MS45 coding with a buddy, gonna take a while just as it did for Nick.

I have Unichip Q+, Much better then the emanage for the BMW. Some have failed with it, but with like any tool...it's how you use it If you want full control of the Car go with the ProEFI PNP stand alone...

I have to write the settings of it and how to install it (Unichip Q+) and I will put the info on the site.

In order to control the injectors you will have to directly control them as you don't want to take away maf voltage to lower pulse width. you need the injector driver module.

I am actually in Worcester, Mass not Jersey but when I go there it's to hit up the track.

Luckily for us the srt project (750hp turbo, built engine) is inspected, running and surprisingly passed emissions scanning. guy at the inspection was trying to clear up the car by revving it a bit, he said something is wrong with the car as it is idling funny.

I told him it has some cams for a top end power band, basically really large cams and big injectors.

Now I can focus more on the BMW and SAAB Aero.

I hate saab , fwd ftl
The cockpit looks thesame from a 900 to the new 9-3.
I've been in my buddies and they drive quite nice though , so if you can live with fwd and wierd cockpit it's a nice car

The new 9-5 AWD is the only one i could see myself driving , it reminds me of an audi ^^

The only problem I ever had with either my 97 900s or my 01 9-3 Viggen was massive torque steer (much more pronounced in the Viggen).

That said, given the opportunity to have a 9-3 cabin in the E46, I'd choose that in a heartbeat. I've never sat in more comfortable seats.

we have a 2008 9-3 AERO and it is a nice ride, it is a nice daily driver that goes through anything. 255HP stock on the tiny TD04 Mitsubishi turbo is still not bad, with the tune they can easily push out 300whp.

This is the daily driver as the SRT-4 is far too much of a beast
Personally I like this over our 9-5 Aero.

I like my Z's over my BMW, everyone has their preferences..

You can counter torque steer with a few suspension tricks on any FWD car.
On long trips we use the SAAB never the BMW It's just tooo slowwwwwww..

A guy down here by the name of Richard at Swedish Motorcars (www.swedishmotorcars.com) was selling machined skid plates. The one I got helped a lot.

My goal is to help the community, I am new as in the past year but not new to cars. I hope I will be able to help others with projects like these.

I gain nothing by doing so... lolol
