ive got the BCV or BPC (always forget what its called) you need.

next youll need a reflash of the ecu. and probably a little bigger turbo.

i did this same upgrade to my 1995 9000CS. I put the BCV in and Aero ECU and had a bit more power but the turbo ran out really fast.

$2,500, and I'll throw in Aero seats!

https://www.saablink.net/forum/items-sale/61190.htm



To answer your actual question, the only differences are the ECU, the larger Mitsubishi TD-04 turbo, and the BPC valve and plumbing. You car should be all wired up for the BPC valve, the connector is just zip-tyed out of the way somewhere near the harness for the driver's side headlight.

I'm sure there are lots of old threads with all this info, it was a pretty common thing to do for a long time.

All of this thread is good advice, DrewP makes it simple. The hardest piece will be swapping turbos, if you go that route. Rusty bolts will probably be there to slow you down.

There are people putting out greater-than-stock-FPT power on their T25's in NG900's and 9000's - just install the BPC and get a stage 1 or 2 ECU.

Done.

This.

You can still boil the tires with a t25. The turbo just won't last that long running 18psi+

Find a good BPC and contact anyone doing T5suite. Estimated $300 and you'll have a rocket compared LPT.

Send a message via AIM to mike d
you can also switch to a T7 bpc. They are much cheaper, and much more reliable. You just need to have your ECU set up right

1) get a t5 bpc.
2) get a cse ecu. If its a manual car, you will need an ecu from a manual cse car. If automatic transmission you will need an ecu from an automatic cse car.
3) from there its just installing and hooking up the vacuum lines. easy job.
