Saab 9-5 biturbo drifter

There’s something wickedly addictive about onboard racing-drifting videos. Yet, this is not a snapshot of the “ordinary” race, nor is it an “ordinary” car.

This is drifting, and special car – RWD Saab 9-5 V8 drifter with BMW’s V8 M60B40 engine, and Swedish drifter Per Ingö behind the wheel. Saab 9-5 TwinTurbo drifter has reached an output of 725 hp, and the goal of tuner is that they reach 1000 horsepower.

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.

  • Its the power steering pump on the top, not a vacuum pump,,,, and the reason it leeks is literally an O ring that attaches to the cam shaft which drives it. About 30 minutes work and a few quid when you know what you are doing.

    Another place that always seems to leak on every car with this design, is the crank shaft seal on the outer timing casing. About 40 quid for the parts (2 gaskets, bit of silicon grease) and give or take 2>3 hours work if you want to do it properly and know what to do.
    Whilst in there might as well check the timing chains too.
