Alexey Korobov from Ukraine is already known to the readers of our site for efficiently modifying Saab engines, and extracting high performance from “ordinary” Saab factory engines. His previous project we presented here was a converted Daewoo Lanos powered by a Saab engine (280HP). In that previous case, the base was a B205 engine, and now it’s a B204L but inside a Saab.
He is completed his new project and was able to test the real HP at the dyno stand, and he has good news – he managed to pack 300HP under the hood!
This Swedish aircraft, hull number 900NG, took up combat duty in 1995. Alexey, the owner and just a big fan of Saab, purchased this car in 2017 as another project for his garage. Earlier we already did a review of his first project.
This time he had to work hard to restore the 900NG. He got the car with high mileage and an engine with no signs of life. But nothing is impossible! Now his Saab is in great shape and will give odds to many modern cars! Some time after buying 900NG, Alexey had a plan of action.
Over the two years of construction of the project, there were several options, but the final result with the TD04HL-20T turbine was still achieved! 340BHP or slightly less than 290WHP. All this was possible thanks to another enthusiast from Belarus (by COM Lab), who is also an ECU tuner in this project!
We post a few specs of this project below, and also read the full range of modifications made by this team of tuners.
