considering of selling 9000 Aero.
Siemens Deka 630 injectors (original)
Walbro GSS342 fuel pump (original)
Custom 2,5" pressure pipe
TiAL replica 50 mm BOV
3 bar map sensor
Big,hefty and shiny wastegate actuator (KL-Racing)
Sachs SRE 785 clutch
4.05:1 drive 9000 LPT gearbox with larger CV joints (no grinding, no whining)
4x yellow Koni adjustable shocks
4x Lesjöfors lowering springs
Poly-bushes, new engine mounts
4x Speedparts grooved brake discs (with Ferodo pads)
Full 3" stainless exhaust with 100 cell cat. converter (yes, it will pass technical inspection officially and easily)
Original MHI TD04HL-20T turbocharger CHRA (mtee.eu). For donor, TD04HL-15T #5 was used from 9-5. Kept the 5# turbine housing and machined the compressor housing to fit the 20T wheel.
RunFile003 - Fully stock with simple remap (same software for the gray 9000 Aero below)
RunFile004 - 9-5 Troll TB2810 with 630 Dekas. Rest of the car stock.
RunFile008 - Curent spec.
On RunFile008 you can see small boost drop around 3400 rpm and really fast boost drop after 4500 rpm. Got it a bit better. Few weeks ago adjusted boost bias map on road. Boost curve silky smooth now, no boost overshooting. Requested 1,7 bar boost achieved around 2800 rpm. Boost bias values ~45 from 4400 rpm (was around 25 at dyno). Have not visited dyno after latest bias map adjustment, according to boost gauge, it holds slightly higher boost now. Possible to get more kW by adjusting ignition map or converting to E85 (and adjusting ignition anyway). With current conservative ECU tune, no knocks all the way to redline!
You can find rust only on the driver side rear arch (both front fenders and rest of the body free from rust) and some minor beauty defects. Driver seat needs new leather.
Cars is currently on winter wheels with new set of Goodyear UG500. Summer wheels with Nankang NS2R are included with the car.
Price tag 3150 €. Link to Estonian advertisment: https://www.auto24.ee/used/1863913
If someone happens to prefer stock 9000 Aero in very good technical and visual condition, with a simple remap (~205 kW ~460 Nm), SRE 740 clutch and 4.45:1 ratio N/A gearbox (with larger CV joints, (I can add stock 3.61:1 Aero gearbox with the car)), then possible for a price tag of 3250 €.

Both cars located in in the center of Estonia.
I would not bother selling either of those, but in the summer I bought a nice convertible Viggen and I can not share myself to 3 Saabs at the same time. If you have a RED 9000 Aero that does not need new front fenders or timing chain replaced, I am open to exchange of cars (or buying 4th Saab ).

Wasn't that good for a customer?
You could now ask: "What about buyers from Estonia?" There have been few phone calls, so far and all of them have asked first: "What is the last price?" and after that, maybe few technical or appropriate questions about the car, if any. E.g. "How fast it really is and can you smoke e60 535d with it??" Price can be discussed next to the car. If a buyer first asks for the "last price", either he does not have the money or is not willing to pay the price no matter in what condition the car would be. People who have had 9000s in Estonian Saabclub tend to have replaced their beloved ninethousands with 9-3 TTiD's as noone wants to pay 1,35€/L for 98 octane and consume 14 L/100km urban. That with almost reasonable driving style. I can assure, on highway the fuel economy is reasonable, but in the city, it will drink up everything.
I understand that there is long way from Riga to the middle of Estonia, so if necessary, I can send more pictures-videos and try to think of all the faults that could be considered of "faults". E.g. one buyer for the gray Aero came and complained that the windscreen wiper frames are rusty and washer fluid tank was empty. Spent 10L of gasoline to check if the clutch REALLY does not slip with 4th gear and came to conclusion "great to drive, but it is front-wheel drive, so nope".
