b204 calibra

by shane-h » Wed Jul 17, 2013 9:57 pm

i've copied and pasted this thread from another forum so if some references dont make sence then please ignore them :lol:


well, seeing as the cavalier was too rotten for my skills to sort it got scrapped back in febuary, i bought a replacement at the same time for the grand sum of £200 and over the last few months i have been been tinkering every now and then and this is a far as i've got so far

it started as a standard (bar the backbox) 1997 calibra complete with the ecowreck engine

plus side is that it has heated leather that works, oil and volt gauges and a s/s back box

downside is it needs a little welding and a new battery tray fitted

work completed so far is

b204 engine fitted along with the f18 gearbox, the gearbox is only a temp measure untill i can get a more suitible one for the engines power

spax lowering kit

5 stud conversion being collected next week

phase1 vectra gsi wheels

espace front splitter

i have fitted the oil pressure switch from the calibra to the saab engine so i can keep the oil gauge working


things to do are get it wired in

get and fit a slim fan

bodge an exhaust system up so i can get it mot'd (then off to longlife for a 3" system)

they'll be more to follow as and when i get time on it

pics from when i got it

No brainer really. I got the complete saab 9-3 for a third of the price of an let and could drive it to see how it performed before removal, you can't do that very often with an let
