The SAAB 16-Valve engine was thouroughly tested...



In 1986 the 8-valve Turbo model gained the intercooler (Possibly called the 900 Tii? - unconfirmed) from its big brother the T16S, this bought the 8-valve up to 155 Bhp from its original un-intercooled 145 Bhp, still a respectable figure given the time period. For 1987 the convertible model was released with the 175 Bhp T16S engine, all 900 models from 1987 onwards also have an updated front end, with a slight slant to the nose and a new grille, headlights and an integrated spoiler on the front bumper. Catalysts were also fitted to all markets from 1987 onwards.



1988 saw the introduction of a water-cooled Turbocharger, apparently this was to improve the overall reliability of the unit and increase its life expectancy. Along with the Turbocharger, the brakes were upgraded to vented front discs and shared the same wheel bolt pitch as the 9000, and the handbrake now operated on the rear wheels.



The 8-valve Turbo engine was faded out in 1989 leaving all Turbo models as 16-valve motors, the injection models also gained the 16-valve motor, and the carburettor version was removed from the model lineup. ABS brakes became standard on the Turbo model at this time, and were an option on all other specifications.



By 1990 all engines in the 900 range were 16-valve, including SAABs newly introduced LPT (Light Pressure Turbo) 900S. For 1992 ABS became a standard feature on all European models.
