8valvegrowl While the 4G63T is a great motor, for sure, the B2x4 motors from SAAB are every bit as good, I'd say.

The majority of crank walk can be written off to a poor decision on the clutch system

cking1975 Mitsubshi made some really nice turbo cars in the late 80's- 90's...they were never popular in the US and because of our Emissions regulations many never made it here...the 4G63T was a better engine than Saab would ever dream to make.

When something works - you just don't fuck with it. Look at the GT-17 - those worked wonderful for Saab - they sold thousands of those stupid things thanks to a shit build quality. If only Mitsubishi could build a car like they can a turbo they'd have something else worth buying...

jssaab Here is the 19T for that turbo. I doubt the dealer would know you upgraded it unless you told them, and you can flash it back to stock if you took it in

Marksy Already itching to go faster ? Didn't we just pay 40k+ for this car ?? I get the intent, but a fast as hell 9k/900 goes for about 3500 said and done these days. . . . And your new 9-5 will still have a warranty.

NahumCC Its still a TD04-15T in the V6 aero. The 4 cylinder turbo went to a 13T/14T blade.



10-20-2010 08:34 AM
jssaab Is't it the same as the one on the 9-3 aero? If so VTuner sells an uprated one IIRC
10-19-2010 11:19 AM
dan-the-kid Its a tiny turbo.

I believe its like a TD-04 13T(used in the 93 V6 aero) or something silly like that. They could have gone bigger, and should have.

At 5,300 rpm max speed - there is plenty of upside rpm to go well above 300hp.
