Here is nice video of Pete Vella‘s 1980 Saab 900 8v Turbo with Trionic 5 engine management.

This car only has 89,000 miles on it and is in incredible shape. Very cool, you may not have heard of of T5 on a 8v, but we think there are only two in the world. It’s very rare.

If you look at the engine compartment you will see Really cool ignition setup with the coil pack. And According to the owner Pete, car it still works like a 9-3/9-5 although he is not 100% on how accurate it is with the plug wires, he would think having the DI in the head is the proper way as its how it’s designed.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
