I had a similar problem on a full pressure SAAB 9000. With me it only happened under hard acceleration, and it was caused by the Waste Gate Controller being sticky and over-boosting the engine to the point where the overpressure switch came into play - this cuts out the engine till the pressure drops to a safe level again - hence the sudden loss of power. On the full pressure turbo's you get a boost gauge so you can see it happening, but I don't think the LPT's have one fitted - so its probably a garage job - otherwise Saab9000.com will show you how to test it yourself.

Re : the computer , they better cover it under warranty or they ****.
Re : the water pump , you have a leak and they say it is the water pump , I have no reason to doubt that they have honestly checked out the problem and determined that a new water pump is the only solution but , damn $ 1000 is pretty steep. I would look around for another mechanic for a second opinion and a quote. Avoid dealerships. Not sure what engine you have but i just looked in my saab with a 2.3 and hope I never have to do mine. I am pretty good with a wrench but I know there would be lots of swearing involved.
