Starting with a Rare Laser red 3 door 2001 Viggen it has been quite a project to transfor this into a beast that is as happy lapping at the track as it is running to the store.


Just sarting to consolodate all the project cars in one place. Seems like there is always something to tinker with.


The old troll tuner pages LINK http://trolltuner.com


Some cool youtube videos of it. YouTube Will work on more.


12.4 1/4 on the gt2871 turbo! Full street tune with slicks.


Will be updated on the trolltuner site.


March 09: Viggen gets hand me down tires from the -04 Aero 225Kumho MX lasted under 3000 miles. ;)


Jan 2009: More texture black powdercoat on the underhood parts. In the intrest of making the car look opem under the hood I have been working on aluminum hardlines for the turbo coolant. It also got a new strut bar more of a basic design we tried but did't like for production.


Fall 08: Rear hatch brce to eliminate some of the body flex that comes from runing stiff suspension on this less than ideal chassis.


Fall 08: While painting the new rear spoiler I sent over the grille to get it matched to the red. Leaving the cross bar chrome gave it an interesting look. Theres a pic in the gallery.
