After a customer asked for a SAAB 9-2x, I did a little research. Sure, I already knew that the car was a joint venture between SAAB and Subaru. But when the car came with a 2.0T, I thought it was the SAAB engine.
I was wrong.
The moment of truth came as I looked at a current eBay auction for a salvage Aero model in Michigan. When I looked at the picture of the engine, I was shocked. The engine in no way looked like the typical SAAB 4-cylinder. What’s the deal here? The deal is that it would make no sense to cram in a horizontal SAAB engine when Subaru already has a 2.0 liter Turbo charged H4 engine that would fool “losers” like myself into thinking it was the SAAB original.
