    I like to see a video comparing the OEM air filters VS PipperCross,K&N,S&B vs Open air on a 2003 Saab Arc

    see if better power and Fule Usage changes.

    Also I been hearing a lot of people talking about being able to make there 9-5 3.0t sound like a WRX with that deep v8ish sound with out mods on the engine.

    or can just come to the US and use my car as a test subject

    Hey mate,

    This is a video that covered ages ago which is basically asking what you are,

    See here,



    Basically there really isn't much it will do, you're better off getting a brand new normal filter.

    Also, SAAB's are extremely rare in Australia. I think the SAAB you are talking about to make sound like a WRX is the 9-2X, as it is actually based on a WRX.

      OEM saab airboxes are pretty well engineered and don't seem to benefit from being swapped out for open cone style filters, even when tuned to silly power levels. The only thing that you do gain is more induction noise and associated turbo noise.

      You'll have a hard time making a v6 sound like anything other than a v6. Changes in the way the engine sounds primarily come from the exhaust, in particular, the manifold itself.

          I just seen on a few saab forums that they made there 9-5 v6 sound close to one. No clue how true it is. But I love to see it tried

              Pod filters won't do anything to your car unless it's NA, and if it's NA you will lose power, save the money and stick with the factory airbox.

              As Moog said: "If you did a poo before you drive, you'll get more power than a pod"
              This is my signature, by far the most original and hilarious signature made in the long hilarious history of hilarious original signatures, all other signatures shall bow before mine for it is... the best.
