Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Saab produced 99's and model '90' for several years after '80 for other than US export.
They used the 'H' engine. Only difference was in the firewall to allow clearance for belts/pulleys/wpump. Many have done this conversion, usually with a 16V turbo engine. Sledge hammer applied to firewall can give enough clearance, but more careful work with cut and modify gives a better result.
Can also get a section cut from a later Euro-99 and section it into the firewall. You can search '16v 99' here for a lot of past discussions I think.
Significant problems with head corrosion were related to period coolants that were not formulated for iron block/alum head.
Modern coolants are formulated for this.
Wpump problems - I've been running with regular coolant changes and 'Bars-leaks' additive and I get no problems with corrosion or wpump issues.
