I’ve never seen anything this bad in my 20 years in the industry. The car is a 2002 Saab 9-5. This is what happens when you ignore a slipping clutch under boost up a long grade, apparently. The flywheel exploded, taking the transmission, engine block, intercooler, and radiator with it. Just a ridiculous amount of damage. Needless to say, the car is done. Too bad, these are otherwise pretty hard to kill, and it’s hard to find a manual turbo Saab.
