Hi my name is Joe. I bought my 1999 9-3 2 years ago originally as a grocery getter for driving around town when I was working from home but then got quickly sucked in to the Saab performance world. Here's what I've done so far:
- Rebuilt engine ~5k miles ago by Swedish Auto Sports in Cherry Hill, NJ
- Viggen clutch and pressure plate
- Taliaferro open intake with K&N cone filter
- Forge twin piston BOV - Jak Stoll Performance steering rack clamp
- silicone intake bend
- Mitsubishi td04-15t turbo with Taliaferro high flow conversion pipe
- custom intercooler
- Saab Sport exhaust
- Stage 2 tune from Ryan King that T5 Suite rates at 300bhp
- Taliaferro 6-point subframe brace
- Taliaferro 22mm rear ARB
- Taliaferro poly engine/trans mounts
- poly suspension bushings & control arms
- blue silicone intake/intercooler/coolant/vacuum hoses
- Pioneer AppRadio 3
- Kenwood Excelon mono block sub amp
- 12" Kenwood Excelon Subwoofer
- Kenwood Excelon 4 channel amp
- Polk Audio 6.5" component front speakers
- Polk Audio 3-way 6x9 rear speakers
- Viggen steering wheel
- carbon fiber dash & window switch pack
- leather e-brake boot & shift boot
- custom black floor mats
- 20% tint
- yellow tinted fogs
- black honeycomb grille insert
- clear side markers
- Saab BBS RK1 wheels
- Michelin Pilot Sport AS3 tires
- drilled & slotted gold anodized Viggen brake upgrade with ceramic pads
- Fixed antenna
- Stainless Valve cover dress up kit
- PLX Devices DM-6 multigauge installed in light switch hole
- PLX Devices wideband a/f sensor module
I'm waiting for warmer weather to install the suspension I have sitting in the trunk:
- Taliaferro poly filled hardened strut mounts
- Vogtland springs
- Koni sport adjustable shocks

Welcome to the forum Joe. That is a really nice grocery getter you have. Once you lower it, it will be transforming from a 300hp grocery getter to a 300hp road warrior :-). You may also want to ad some SE side skirts and front/ rear lip. They will enhance the lines of the car and give it a more aggressive look. keep up the good work.
