For the last couple of years I've been toying with the idea of bringing my first car back from the dead and making it a race/track day car. The only problem I seem to be running into is that I have no earthly idea what league or division my car could be placed in.
The car in question is a 2002 Saab 9-3se that my aunt gave me when I turned 16. I absolutely loved that thing, it was quirky, ridiculously fast and as a starter car I didn't think it could be any better. However when the first engine decided to cannibalize itself we had a mechanic replace it. To make a long story short, the mechanic put the wrong model year engine in the car and pretty much destroyed my turbo and most of the other mechanical bits from the engine.
Now the car has been sitting in my parents garage for a few years, and I want to see it run again, but not as a daily driver. That's why I'm asking, I want to make sure I can look over the specs the car has to meet before I start buying anything for it so that I don't spend a lot of money, only to have an out of spec car that can't compete. So if anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated. By the way the picture up top is not of my car, I found it on the internet and it looks almost identical to mine, except for the interior.
