GS inlet pipe install???

somethings not right here....

in the middle of the install, and after i fight with the damn clamp to get lines up for 20 minutes...its not in the right spot. its not lining up with the upper bracket, and the pcv hardline isnt lining up either (see below)



the pipe is hitting the upper actuator bolt. looke like ill be fine if i just dont have that bolt in there, but i feel like nick did design it to need the removal of the bolt?



any input? i need to go get a haircut at some point today lol.

Welcome to my world last year.

I struggled with it for a long time.

I called Nick.

He informed me that SOME 99's had the bolt in the way. He told me to take out the bolt and it would be fine.

I had it on in 2 mins after that.

It is the top wastegate bolt in the way. Simply remove it. There will be no issues. No bending.. But the easiest way is to call.

Yeah.

I wish I knew that befoe hand lol.

I felt like an idiot, like I was installing it wrong. It would seat and be ALMOST perfect but I just could not get it to sit right.

After I called out and bolt came out it was smooth sailing.

i didnt wanna call for such a small question

i was pretty sure i needed to just remove it, but i know your parts are so good i figured you designed it around the bolt and i was just being dumb lol.

thanks guys.

now to decide if i should pain tand reinstall the heat shield or leave it off...then on to new speakers and brakes!

strange.. I had one on my 9-3 with td04 and no problem,....

I mean, tight fit, yes. But no modifiction to anything was needed to make it fit.

the clamp was the trickiest part, that is hard to do with nobody to hold it in place while you screw it.

edit: got beat to it

Don't worry about calling..

had a guy call screaming about his floor mats that I sod him at SOC in Michigan.. He would not believe me that they were from somewhere else.. then he called back, Long story short he screamed at my shipping/ parts girl till she cried.. After going through everyone here he finally believed that we did not sell those floormats.

took the bolt out and it lines right up i just need an extra set of hand to hold it so i can tighten the screw, so im waiting for my buddy to come over.

also found i need some spade connectes so i can bypass the way the factory speakers connect.

ill post one big thread tonight or something.

thanks for the help!

You need to have your compressor machined to fit this.

Nick offers this part and the machining of the compressor on his site. The 06+ pipe is known as the King Cobra.

so my question is now...can the pipe mess up the mixture if i dont adapt the car? im getting some new and big backfire pops.

if i give it some gas in any gear and then let off, no matter where in the revs, i get the typical burble out of the saabsport, and then it will give a pretty damn big POP or POP POP, like theres actually fuel in there.

I know someone will disagree, but everytime I have installed something substantial I have re-adapted.
