“What power losses should I expect at 24.4 inches Hg absolute barometric pressure…” you ask? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

Once again, the 2009 Saab Owners Convention will be serving up an impressive offering of high performance equipment, tuning services, and technical know-how. Maptun USA will head up the fun with the unveiling of many new performance parts, including suspension bits and a rumored Quiafe 6-speed manual transmission! John Williams Racing is to feature the ETS intercooler developed in conjunction with Extreme Turbo Systems and will provide staged t5 and t7 tunes. Many others will be on hand to answer all your burning performance questions!

Performance Seminars
Whether driving a road race circuit, auto-cross track, or Colorado’s twisty mountain roads, Dr. Gary Wolf will be present methods for improving Saab performance. Gary is an experienced race driver and auto-cross supporter who has learned many ‘tricks of the trade’. Included in his discussion will be techniques, such as corner entry and exit strategy, as well as other performance driving topics.

Presently, efforts are being made to recruit a specialist that can assist with transmission durability issues in high performance applications.

Dynamometer Pulls
A Dyno Day is scheduled at Mac Autosport in Parker, Colorado (just south of Denver). First, second, and third place trophies will be presented during the Saturday Night Awards Banquet. Because of the off-site location, Mac Autosport has kindly reduced its price to $54 for three base-line pulls on their state-of-the-art 448/424 AWD Dynojet. Participation is limited to 25 entrants.

Altitude Comparo
How much power does a turbocharged powerplant lose at altitude? If you’ve dyno’d your Saab at near sea-level, we’d love to compare notes with your Denver pull. Saab tuners have long debated whether a t7 car, such as the 9-3 Viggen, will lose power at elevation? And what about a stage3 or stage4 tuned car? Here’s our chance to answer those questions once and for all!
