give some ppl time to see your post man - calm down. Some ppl have day jobs, other nights. Someone will see it - no need to bump it yet.

Huh ... pretty sure you could get everything you need from a reputable Saab repair site, or a dealer as the TD04 is standard fitment on the Viggen, Euro Aero, and US SE 205 hp 9-3s ... all the parts should cross over I would think. But I don't know anyone that's done that specific upgrade personally.

if you have a 2001 or later 9-3 the inlet pipe should bolt right on, if your car is older then youll need to make your own design or buy the inlet pipe

I believe Eric used a larger inlet pipe to the turbo... like I am doing now on my 97 ng900set. I found mine off of a 99 Viggen and the inlet on the Mitubisi td04/t25-28 is a different size or larger as compared to my td03/t25...

The 99 Viggen td04 or hybrid type generally has a round exhaust inlet thats the same as the t25 inlet, but larger intake port (ie t28 side) from the intake side.

Of course you might have the same size, having a later model car than I, but with a t25 it makes sense that the td04 would be larger.

hope I haven't confused the issue...

I bought my oil and coolant lines from genuinesaab.com, and my wastegate actuator from SAAB.

The oil lines were slightly larger than my t25's.

good luck
