Often times it is difficult to know what to get someone for the holidays. As my family and friends already know, I can be a difficult person to buy gifts for. So I’m providing info and tips for what is hot this holiday season for the geek in your life who also happens to be a Saab nut.
Anyone who enjoys working on cars often times has a wish list of things they would like to buy for their car, or things they would like to do to their car. Here are some suggestions of things to get for the Saab Enthusiast. These are this years hot items:
Front Mount Inter Cooler (FMIC), $90 + shipping – Many Saab lovers that are tuning a classic 900 desire to mount a FMIC to the front of their car to help improve their turbo charging system. The FMIC acts to help cool the air after it passes through the turbo and on into the engine. Definitely one of the bigger ticket items to make a Saab guy happy.
Gauges and Gauge Cluster – When improving and tuning a car, it is always helpful to have live information about the condition of the engine. This is where a 3-gauge DIN cluster that mounts in the radio slot comes in handy. With a Boost Gauge ($68.95), Air/Fuel Gauge ($71.95), and a Water Temp Gauge ($60.96), you can add character and better improve performance of you Saab.
Another big ticket item this year is the JT 3″ Downpipe ($257) for the exhaust system. By upgrading to a 3″ downpipe you can better imrove the flow of the engine so the turbo can spool better for improved power and performance.
As always, a Saab enthusiast can never have enough tools. No Saab tuner should be without a full set of (metric) ratchet wrenches ($179.99). These ratcheting wrenches can mean the difference between a 30 minute job and an hour long job, and save your knuckes as well.
