Did a quick search and didn't find what I was looking for but I am pressed for time here at work so I figured I'd make a new thread.

I found a car during my weekly searches that was hit. I am curious to find out what turbo is in it and the parts yard doesn't know, but they provided me a VIN. Is there any way I can extract which type of turbo is in it from these numbers? If it's a HOT with the different turbo, I'll scoop it up...If not, no big... They said it was a 2000 9-3, and I'm a little foggy as to which trims had which specs. I know there is a VIN decoder somewhere here or another site, but I couldn't dig it up...

The VIN is YS3DF55K9Y2029559. Any help is appreciated.

Also, mods, move this if it's not in the right spot.

The 8th digit denotes motor. Viggens and Aeros are G and I can't remember what the hot is supposed to be. Ok, just looked a 99 Hot is a P and the K is T7 Hot.

According to the vin decoder at SaabVin.com it is a B205R.

Looks like it would be a TD04, you would want the turbo and lines, and the intercooler hoses and probably the intercooler, but those are cheap new.
