Question 9-5 turbo swap info

Hi all. It's been a few years since my last post on here and alas... here i am.

Hope someone can offer some useful knowledge on this situation:

Looking at buying a 2001 9-5 (non aero) with a blown turbo. The guy is selling it for peanuts so I figure its worth a shot. I also found a guy parting out his totaled 1996 9000 Aero. I'm buying the exhaust manifold and turbo. He doesnt have the coolant or oil lines available.

Straight swap? I'm looking to drop the 9-5's manifold and turbo and put in the 9000's turbo/manifold.

I've done a turbo installation on an old C900 I had years ago so I am familiar with the process. Question is, do these use the same lines/banjo bolts and is it the same turbo?
