What turbo lines needed question

What lines from what 9-3's can i use to install a Saab Aero Viggen 15-T TD04HL turbo? If you have the part numbers that would be great! I've heard you can reuse your old lines with a little bending and adding a few washers to help seal. What about the inlet pipe? Will any 01/02 or vig pipe work for my 99 9-3?

I used all my stock lines if I remember correctly, but I also had lines off the td04.

You may need some banjo bolts, and get some variety packs of copper washers.

The intake pipe can be off any of the pre 06' t7's, if I remember correctly. Off a vig OR a gt17'd car.

Godlwing sells them for like $65 ish, but also get the mating 'clamp', or there is NO way of attaching it without it. I think I paid $6-10 for that at the dealer!

Oh, I did cut one of my coolant lines and joined it with fuel hose in a small segment, just to make it easier to install.

It's really not that bad of a swap.

Correct M12x1.5 for the water banjo's at the turbo center section with 1/2 copper crush washers. Make sure there good and centered on the line as you tighten it.

As for finding them thats the trick. Internet is easiest whereas finding them locally can end up with you getting backed into like I was lol. Check around to see if you have any auto performance shops as they may carry them. Your unlikely to find them anywhere else......maybe another dealership whose vehicles use banjo's of that size.

Nope. Leaves you missing a M12x1.5 and it doens't have two banjo adapters. Just find the bolts locally or order two m12x1.5 banjo's from online at summit.

Earl's Performance Plumbing sells 12mm x 1.5 anodized aluminum banjo bolts (part number EAR-997592ERL). They have a shoulder on them that fits the stock 14mm lines on a NG900 and come with crush washers. They are about $14.00 each at Summit.

Earl's banjo bolts are great, and they're actually around $6.00 each. AN Plumbing/Earl's Store #1 is the cheapest place to get them that I've found. I think I'm the only one to have actually used them so far, and they work perfectly. They have a 19mm head on them, so make sure you have something big enough to drive them. I used a regular socket on the one closest to the front of the car, and a u-shaped distributor wrench on the rear one.
