dc saab how much did you pay for your oil and coolant lines?
03-12-2004 12:00 PM
DC_SAAB I bought my oil and coolant lines from, and my wastegate actuator from SAAB.

The oil lines were slightly larger than my t25's.

good luck

DC_SAAB I believe Eric used a larger inlet pipe to the turbo... like I am doing now on my 97 ng900set. I found mine off of a 99 Viggen and the inlet on the Mitubisi td04/t25-28 is a different size or larger as compared to my td03/t25...

The 99 Viggen td04 or hybrid type generally has a round exhaust inlet thats the same as the t25 inlet, but larger intake port (ie t28 side) from the intake side.

Of course you might have the same size, having a later model car than I, but with a t25 it makes sense that the td04 would be larger.

hope I haven't confused the issue...

marky if you have a 2001 or later 9-3 the inlet pipe should bolt right on, if your car is older then youll need to make your own design or buy the inlet pipe

There's ERP's site ... should be helpful.

WS i know ERP got a td04 on his 900. it bolts right up supposedly. I think he got his from a junk yard and it came with all the oil lines and everything. im not positive though

tanner55 thanx saabtuner........yeah i was thinking about calling the dealer on the water and oil lines but they will proably charge alot ... I still am not sure if the 185hp inlet pipe i have will fit the tdo4. any help and ideas is greatly appreciated
02-23-2004 05:50 PM
SaabTuner Huh ... pretty sure you could get everything you need from a reputable Saab repair site, or a dealer as the TD04 is standard fitment on the Viggen, Euro Aero, and US SE 205 hp 9-3s ... all the parts should cross over I would think. But I don't know anyone that's done that specific upgrade personally.

BurnsSide42 give some ppl time to see your post man - calm down. Some ppl have day jobs, other nights. Someone will see it - no need to bump it yet.
