That was a good weekend, Kev, with one notable exception.... :bag:

Definitely good numbers for the 9000 - monstrous torque! :cool:

Yeah did good power, I was happy with what it put out, did more than I thought it would.

At brands again on the 14th (this Saturday coming), and the car is all ready to go, minus a turbo kit and brakes

Image

The m10 studs and nuts unwound and blew the gasket out again, I think it's because the bolts came out the centre cartridge supporting the turbo on the block and that I've been driving her hard, I've now bought a multi layered Nissan gasket and also found out they do a nut locking plate too, but I needed to get it back together today so tack welded the studs and nuts to hopefully stop them unwinding and I can still grind the tacks off if I need to take it apart.
Also remade the wastegate recirc pipe up as it blew the thin flexi pipe out, I didn't put a flexi in it as I didn't have one the right size and needed to get it fixed for the trackday but it's still a pretty good job, changed the v band on the downpipe too as the old one was shot.

Also managed to do it all at work which has been nice as I've been able to do it all much quicker due to having a ramp, also ordered some ds3000 rear pads as the end ones where low and at the same time fitted the Abbott rear discs and fitted the new ds3000 front pads and cleaned the j hooks up on the front discs.

Also the passenger side bonnet latch snapped so would pop up that corner if you where going at reasonable speeds, luckily I had a spare

And also got a pic of the Saab fleet at home :D

The next thing to do it rust as it's bad, but I've got to save up for a bit first as it is much worse than my old anniversary.

Didn't realise you still had the dame. 3 Saabs is a good number to have I feel.
