Filtration expert Pipercross has released details of its high performance foam panel filter almost all models of Saab’s Classic 99 and 900 models. This OEM-sized filter fits all variants and offers huge improvements in flow, balanced with significantly longer life and greater engine protection.
Owners of any of these cars can improve the breathing of their engine thanks to this new, direct replacement panel filter, which drops directly into the factory airbox, replacing the restrictive cylindrical paper version. The lightly oiled triple layer foam used draws heavily on Pipercross’ BTCC experience, as the firm is supplying almost every leading team on the grid for the 2015 season.
The vastly improved surface area, carefully selected multi-layered foam within the unit offers 30% more air-flow than even the most efficient of OEM filters. As well as providing a far better rate of flow, the ingenious multi-layer design also filters down to a far finer rate, protecting the engine against damage. With a comprehensive lifetime warranty it makes huge financial sense, especially when you factor in the reasonable £29.99 + VAT £35.99 (Including VAT) price tag. Best of all, each kit is lovingly hand-crafted in Pipercross’ UK factory.
Although designed with performance and longevity in mind, a useful by-product of this optimised induction is that, in most cases, fuel efficiency is often marginally improved too, perhaps making the rapid turbo version a little easier on the pocket at the pumps.
The Pipercross panel filter provides a very subtle improvement in induction noise combined with a genuine airflow improvement, making it an essential enhancement for anyone running any incarnation of these 2.0 litre models. Whichever Saab vehicle you might run, with over 3,000 applications covered in the range, there’s a good chance they have one to enhance and protect your engine.
