Disadvantages of the Saab D207R engine
- Most of the problems in the units of this series are delivered by intake swirl flaps;
- They wear out quickly, and then begin to wedge or fall off altogether;
- There is little trouble with the fuel system, often only the metering valve fails;
- The BorgWarner Twin Turbine is generally reliable, but its price won’t make you happy;
- There are cracks and deformation of the exhaust manifold in the region of the 4th cylinder.
