I would imagine the exhaust flange being different. I can't see this turbo bolting on, but if you post some links or pictures it would help!

uh, not without a lot of work...i am going to assume that it has a T3 exhaust flange, meaning you're going to need either an adapter or a new manifold.

additionally you'll probably need to put a different flange on your downpipe, and completely redo your intake.

doable, but not worth it...

What they said, a lot of work with minimal rewards. The rule of thumb I use with a 9-5 is if you aren't going to have to change the pistons, it's not worth the fabrication work.

Haha well said. This is why I plan on just messing with the TD04 until something blows up eventually.

I think you'll blow your turbo before you blow your short block. Assuming you tune it correctly and give it plenty of fuel and the 06 cobra.
