This is my daily driver, a 2000 Saab 9-5 Aero wagon manual. Almost 208k miles, dual zone climate control, heated seats front/rear, rear A/C, perforated leather, aluminum dash and door handles, decent MPG, and sounds good. Just an educated guess, but around 260hp/330tq at the wheels

JZW Stage 4 and has made 302 fwhp and 356 ft-lb of torque (SAE) on the dyno reliably.

Cool car man! Nice to see a modified Saab. How hard is it to find parts for those now? Must be a tight knit community.

Thanks! Surprisingly, it's not that difficult to get parts. There are quite a few dedicated Saab sites along with some Euro car sites with plenty of parts. It is a pretty tight community like the Starquest group. This is a great car and I would recommend them to anyone. Just like anything, keep up with the maintenance and it will treat you right. The tune and cams bring the power on fully at around 3500 rpms, and that torque is addicting. Part of the reason I love the Starion so much. Some day I'll get it on the dyno a post some real numbers.
