I haven't on Saabs but on many VWs and Audis. I don't know how much you know so Ill give you more than you probably need

Turbo gets a nice premade piece like these, just make sure to get one that fits.

If you are wrapping the stock cast iron manifold it will look diffrent because of the shape but the idea is the same

To get it to look ok I would pull the manifold off. It looks like it will be a tough one to get to look right but with enough time you should do ok. I have seen some "heat boots" on some cars that are made of the same material but go over the manifold and have snaps. I googled and could find anything about them.

When I wrap I use hose clamps to hold the ends tight, and if you dampen the wrap you can pull it tighter. Down pipe is easy. Im at work otherwise I would have posted pics of mine.
