depends which td05 it is.. i mean they aren't bad turbos, just not as big as a td04

It's not worth the time and effort...

Look for a TD04HL 15T from a 2000-2002 9-3 SE. It's same turbo that's in the Viggen and it will take fewer adaptations to bolt on. The TD05 will spool up quickly but you'll lose top end...
