1999 saab 9-3 Trionic 5... Im back :)

Thought i would start by saying hi again to everyone as i was off the forum for a while since i never had a saab ! Anyways i have another one so im back for some help .
Ive picked up a 1999 9-3 with trionic 5 but im unsure what engine is in it. Ill have a look later on the VIN decoder i have and see what it says. Whats the trionic 5 engine like in the 9-3?

The main question i have just now is im going to be doing a full interior swap from tan to black leather so the carpet and the underside of the dashboard will be removed. Im wondering if i can change the heating from the twist knobs to the electric heating if i got all the stuff out a donor car?

B204 should be the motor in your 99 9-3.

Not sure, all 99 9-3's in the states got at least 185hp and the HOTs were 200hp.

I don't see that in the B204 page.

B204i: 177 Nm (131 lbft) @ 4300 rpm 130 hp (97 kW) @ 5500 rpm 10.1:1
B204E: 219 Nm (162 lbft) @ 3600 rpm 154 hp (115 kW) @ 5500 rpm 9.2:1
B204L: 263 Nm (194 lbft) @ 2100 rpm 185 hp (138 kW) @ 5500 rpm 9.2:1
B204R: 280 Nm (210 lbft) @ 2200 rpm 200 hp (150 kW) @ 5500 rpm 9.2:1

In the states we only got the B204L and B204R. We got the B234i for our non-turbo option.

On top of that, only the turbo models were Trionic 5. So unless you have an SE HOT, then I would guess you have a B204E or B204L.

You cannot change it over unless you want to do a LOT of work.

simple answer is yes you can, the heater resistor moves from the glovebox area, to near the fan motor, and i am not sure if the main distribution drum is different, so check into that

but yes, all the parts are there, and it can be done

The reason i considered it is because im doing a full interior swap from tan to black so the underside if the dash(glove box etc) will be removed so ill have better access.

Do you know of anyone who has done this also is all the electric connections there? Is it just plug and play or do i need a tec 2 to activate it.

Also could i give my car cruise control?
