Will a 9000 Turbo Manifold fit?

Will it fit on a 2002 9-3SE? Does it flow better than my stocker?

It would fit, but there wont be any reason to go that way.

Though if it where from an 9000 aero the port to the turbo would be larger, not sure if that would be any beneficial to you with the smaller turbo opening.

That's what I thought. I figured I could kinda port match my stock turbo for it. ie. wider @ the inlet and taper down sorta cone shaped if you will....

So there is nothing I need to do to make it fit on my head? Do I need to worry about any getting in the way?

I doubt a exhaust manifold from a 9000 will fit on a 900/9-3. I tested a T3 manifold from a older 9000 and there was no room left between the turbo and waterpump to fit a decent downpipe. I haven't tested the later T25 manifold from 9000 but I suspect there would be similar problems there to.

Besides there's no real reason to switch. The design of the 900/9-3/9-5 manifold i supposed to flow better than the 9000. I got 421 hp with a 900 manifold anyway

Turbovin's right. There are plenty of folks making 400+ on the stock manifold, or a stock manifold with some port matching done on the collector.

Turbovin, welcome to the site!!!

and nice car its always fun to see a swede on the here. why the 202 cams though? im very interested in how this affected the engine.

as far as swappping the manifolds, im not sure i guess the only way to find out is to do it, i cant see it getting an incrediable amount of gain though.

Thank you very much =)

The B202 T16 (without cat) cams are the most "aggresive" standard cams with a bit longer duration, 252/254 degrees compared to 240 for the B204L cams. The lift is the same as standard T5 cams (8.65) though. I chose these cams because they were a cheap upgrade compared to real tuning cams and the cars revs really nicely to 7000 rpm, especially considering that they are standard Saab cams.

Max horsepower is at 6500 rpms.

I wouldn't go through the trouble mounting a 9000 manifold, if you feel that you really need another one then it propably would be better to get a aftermarket manifold.
