Exclamation Saab 9-3 bigger turbo

Hi guys I really need help about a turbo I just picked up which is a 19t GM turbo off a 2005 v6 2.8 saab.

now my question is can it fit on my B204l 99 9-3? do I need any modifications to have it fit? I believe it has a T25 exhaust flange to fit on my car. as well do I need any other mods to make it run like, getting it retuned or having better fuel injectors 3inch Dwnpipe etc

any help or suggestions would be awesome and really appreciated.
as well I picked this turbo up new for 300. The turbo number is GM#55569052

I don't know what V6 turbos look like, but if you posted a picture, we'd be able to tell you, with certainty, if it would fit your 9-3

Definitely a 3 inch DP. You don't NEED it but if your interested in go fast goodies down pipes are what I would do before anything else really.

Also you will need a tune to really make use of it. Mike D Tuning | Saab Trionic Tuning

What the heck is that black plastic part, you need to post a pic of where it would connect to the dp and manifold. My guess is no, its not going to fit with out modification.

I believe its an turbo actuator, but I don't think b240 have anything like that to plug into it

That is the bypass valve (blow-off valve), it's getting common that they are mounted right to the compressor housing on new cars.

This will not fit without customization... which probably will cost more than it would just to get the correct turbo to fit the car.
