A quick look at Swedish Racing Developments project car, a Saab 9-5 Aero SRD. The car is being built to compete in Time Attack and SSK. Swedish Racing Developments  is planning to achieve the most out of a B235E engine whilst retaining most of its original internals.

It´s a good engine, but for serious power, pistons would need to be changed and they just don´t have the money to both finish the car and build a killer engine, hence the limited modifications.
