When we hear that any car parts are no longer available (NLA), we at eEuroparts.com take that as a challenge. Especially when it is a mission critical engine part, like a Saab 900 Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS) for classic SAAB vehicles. Without a working crank position sensor, the ignition system can’t tell whether your SAAB’s engine parts are rotating or the relative position, and won’t fire the spark or run the fuel pump. You end up dead in the water with an engine that turns over but doesn’t start. This specific sensor (#7484546) is used on both SAAB’s 9000 and non-turbo 900 models from 1989 until Trionic 5.5 was introduced in 1994. The complete sensor assembly is not available from SAAB, but we’ve tracked down the independent sensor part (7484546K) in pigtail form so you can replace the sensor yourself and reuse your old wiring and housing. There has been some confusion about how
Performance exhaust parts are the perfect upgrade for any vehicle, converting the mundane commuter to something that can be fun to drive. A little rasp and grumble lets you know “Hey! There’s an engine up here, give it a rev”, which can be just what you need to spice up the monotony. We know this all too well, and have been working hard to bring everything to our website’s inventory from subtle and tasteful sport cat-back systems to roaring 3in turbo back pipes. With a long history of selling piles of aftermarket and OEM exhaust parts to those that live with the unfortunate reality of road salt, we wanted to let our customers know that if you are looking for the next meaningful performance parts upgrade for your car, we have some polished stainless steel for you to check out. Of course, if you’re ever looking for serious power enhancements,

June 10th hosted our second drtuned Racing Time Attack event of the year, and both the weather and performance were all that we could have hoped for. Previous events have all ended in pouring rain and miserable timed laps, so we were anxious to set some fast official times with drier weather. We’re fairly confident the only thing that prevented our car from snap-oversteering into a wall at our previous races was a background in rally racing. It was like driving a large, heavy, FWD Toyota MR2. All the sliding, none of the Toyota-ness. The lead up to the event was somewhat tightly scheduled, but relatively stress free. We knew our brake pedal was feeling very soft, and definitely needed to be bled, but we were waiting on getting the car back from our sponsor and the incredibly skilled team at Herbert’s Autobody. After weeks of delay, we were finally
Well PHA is still alive and my RED 86 notchback is still competing in the 2017 PHA hill climbs and time trial events, governed by the SCCA. After breaking lots of SAAB parts last year, I decided to build a really solid motor and genuine SAAB transmission. I bored a 2.1 block to 94 mm, ordered custom forged pistons, had the skirts and piston tops “Swain” coated and used Toyota H beam rods with a few modifications. I lost 13 ounces of weight from each rod / piston assembly and added an eEuroparts 14 lb. flywheel. I built a 4 speed S&R non synchro gearbox and reused my Quaife limited slip. The combination of parts has been great. No more loose pistons with blow by and I can shift the transmission and always find a gear. No more destroyed 2nd gear synchros or stripped off gear sets! The first event
