    I have 2 different dyno vids 1 where I really didn't believe the numbers I put down the 2nd. 1 2 me seems more believable...The mods right now r 1.Lightweight Flywheel/2+Clutch/Steel Braided Clutch Line 2.Upper&Lower Strut Bars 3.Short Shift/Shifter Bushings/Shifter Reinforcement Accessory 4.Custom Short Air Intake.

    N the 1st. vid I added the first of my custom intakes and it seemed pretty good but still I thought it was 2 good 2 b true and it had the lightweight flywheel...N the 2nd. vid everything was added and I changed my intake 2 a custom cold air intake but by doing that I really F-ed up because it felt like I was losing power and torque n my 1st.gear but my numbers seemed more believable...Im planning on going back 2 the dyno 4 a 3rd. time with the new Custom Short Air Intake and c what I make then...I also have a YouTube vid where my car is completely STOCK just search my name or try Saab run #1 and I think u'll find it.

    yea the LK9 saab motor is very similar to the LSJ 05-07 ss supercharged

    the LNF has direct injection

    my valve cover says SAAB on it with the coil cover removed haha

    i just read the the lsj is pretty much the saab motor with a blower instead of a turbo
