Turbocharged Sonett III ?!?!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Vintage Saab FAQ : One Thread

I've got a 73 1/2 Sonett that I am trying to restore. Of course I would like to make this Saab a real screamer. I have contacted Jack Lawrence at MSS, and he could help alot, but I really want 200+ HP for a real exotic killer(P's and B's if you will) heh, Anyway, I've heard that someone turboed a Sonett III with the help of Bud Clark. I would appreciate if someone could give me some direction, maybe an E-mail address for a contact or something. One other thing, will those 185/65 - 15 tires rub at all if the car is lowered, or can you lower it a certain amount without rubbing the tires under load or what? Thanks in advance to anyone that can answer any of these questions.

Jonathan, You've got the right names when it comes to building big engines. Bud Clark's number is 714-282-7378 (No e-mail). Consider too Tom Donney and Chip Lamb (Follow the links page or go through their individual pages on SaabSpot).

Can't hurt to tell 'em I sent you.

RE tire question: Join the VSAAB list! It is filled with Sonett guys who have centuries of experience!

Best of Luck,
