on that website what turbos under the garrett line would be the next step up without having to modify anything too much? i have intake and exhaust already.

with anything other than the stock TD04 you will need a tune at least...

Why not get the downpipe and cat back and a tune for your car now

I wouldn't invest that sort of money in a 1995 friend. Sell the car before the turbo goes, and then think about upgrading it. That's just my two cents though.

Whoops, Sell the car before the turbo goes, buy a newer SAAB, and then think about upgrading it. **

I think if you find a 9000 aero turbo, you can have the exhaust upgraded to something like an 18t. You will have to wait for others to chim in, I'm not knowledgeable on the subject.

yea i have no idea what i want to do. the turbo is fine, the fins are just chipped. i was just wondering which one of those turbo models would bolt right up to my car without modification, except for hardware of course. i want to get a stage 2 tune or equivalent doing it with ecuproject but i still am learning that stuff.
