That's some good info Mike....
You've got me thinking....

Do all the He351cw,s have that funny charge air outlet of to the side?

I see the pic of your turbo has a custom charge air outlet.

Subbed.

My room mate recently totaled out his truck. He offered me a free turbo basically (as a serious joke), didn't think it would "fit" on one of these saabs without a LOT of moving things around, but its a pretty beast turbo though for sure. Actually its a HX-35.

I'll set it to the side and follow you and your threads to see how things go

O.K... I got a question about pistons..

When I'm choosing the piston size .... Should I just go with the biggest diameter.? 93mm I think Wossner Piston Official Product | Wossner Piston Saab 9000 2.3Ltr.16V Turbo 93 mm Bore (PN# 9214D300).

nope, go with the smallest diameter you can after boring the cylinders, you want to keep as much sidewall in the motor as possible this keeps it strong.

yes, all he351's have that funky air outlet. i really to recommend a good equal length exhaust manifold with it. this will allow you to change the turbos placement, and direction to make everything fit like it should. Also equal leangth manifolds Drastically reduce spool up time by eliminating stall points in the exhaust pulses.

So, For example..... when I pull this 2.3 apart and I find that the bore is in a "reasonable" condition, I would only go to 90.5mm?? ( i think 90mm is standard).
I always thought that "bigger is better", But I am also a noob...lol

I want to do everything to this engine I can.

What ever turbo I finally decide to go with, I'll will have a proper tubular manifold.

At this early stage of the project, I'm probably going with a 3071. Only because I can get a Tubular manifold easy. And probably half the price of a "custom" job. I could only imagine that a custom mani would cost me over a $1000... :0

to me it seams like its the same effort to get a manifold with a t3 flange, as it is to get one with a t25 flange. worst cast get the one with the t25 flange and weld a t3 flange onto it?? not a hard project.

you are correct on the bore, keeping lots of iron around your cylinders is more important than an extra 2mm of bore.

That's a good idea.. I didn't think about that.

OK guys,
Quick update of what's been going on down here.

I've been soooo busy doing other shit....lol ..

I just got the gearbox out .. I was a bugger of a job actually.. I think the gearbox on my 900 seems easier.
*Maybe that's because I've pulled my 900 box like a gazillion times now ..haha*

The motor comes out next weekend



The box on the ground..

Ya know, it seems to me if you could marry your 900's throttle body to the 9000's intake manifold, it'd become really easy to build and install a real strut brace across the strut towers. (or adapt the 900's cables to the 9000's TB)

Those of us that drive on the wrong side have a brake booster in the way but without that booster, I think it'd get a lot easier to work the induction tubing.
