Didn't add it to Hamas's topic as it's non Saab. It was a few years ago and a little bit damp. Couple of 'moments' in this vid, especially at 8 mins. Had to drop into 2nd whilst sliding and floor it to straighten her up :lol Was out for half hour in this stint and only stopped cus I needed a drink lol Passenger said after he also felt sick :mrgreen: This is 2nd part of the stint.

Was a fan of the GSI 2000, never rode in a V6.

my 8 valve sri cavalier third gear was really long you could pop in third at 10 mph to 100 mph
amazing engine really low tech do galactic mileage ok bit rough sounding and they leak oil
squeaky clutch pedal not the best gear change ever

mine had a cat so 115 horses but just felt really fast compared to other 115 horse cars ive had
kind of low down torque compared to rev happy hondas
weird kind of car felt really fast even if you were driving gently slowly
overtook amazing considering no turbo not exactly a light weight car

girl i know has a 8 valve calibra and she loves it
says it drives itself reckons its the easiest car shes ever driven

i nearly bought her calibra before she did exactly the same 2.0 8 valve c20 engines in both of them the calibra was exactly double the price to insure than the sri cavalier
