Here's pics of some of the other fun things you'll find in the engine compartment.

First up, there is the APC box. Located under the left rear seat in 1982-1985, Saab moved it up to the engine compartment in 1986. This is also the location for the EZK ignition control system for 16 valve non-turbos.

Next is the tiny ignition module. A similar unit is the ignition amplifier for the EZK system.

The Cruise Control pump is sandwiched up here. It makes the vacuum that operates the cruise control system. Somewhere below this is the charcoal canister...

This shot shows (left to right) the top of the Air Mass Meter, the Throttle Dashpot (the thing that looks like a spaceship), and the throttle actiator.

Up front, we have the Ignition Coil and the APC solenoid. The APC solenoid has different connectors, depending on year.

This is a shot of the right inner CV from above the exhaust manifold.

Finally, we have a shot of the right motor mount.
