Holset hx-35 build

First time on this forum I have a 1997 saab 900se. I eventually plan on a hx-35 build. When it comes down to it what do i need besides a 3" exhaust, tune and bigger injectors? Do I need a custom manifold or make any other adjustments to allow this big turbo to fit and run properly. Any input or advice would help as im new to building saabs.

Not finding specific details. Can anyone help me out? At this point im going to have to take everything apart and find out what I need as i go. Do I need a slim fan custom manifold etc etc. my goal for the car is to go to stage 3 with a brewed city boost ecu tune.

most things that plumbing related need atleast a little customization to fit. some things need a lot.

you can use an early 9000 T3 manifold, but it needs a spacer, and it is not an equal length, although it works it will create a little extra lag over a decent custom header.

yes, you will need a slim fan

also, you may want to consider some sort of in person tuning option, no two holset cars are alike,

yes, chassis bracing does help a lot, ng's have a disproportionately loose chassis for there power level.

jeff, what state are you in?
