Default Viggen intercooler on NG900

Guys, a quick question.. the Viggen intercooler & hoses..

Will those hoses directly bolt on to the NG900?

I believe so but I think you will need the lower radiator hose as well.

the hoses from a viggen will bolt right on, and you will need a new lower radiatior hose (the cheepest part!)

or you can hack your old pipes up and make new ones out of them

im sure theres a picture around somewhere, but the 93 hose goes out and around the new intake hose. on the NG's the radaitor hose goes straight down because theres nothing to go around.

anything off a 93 will work. i think if you check out chris's site he has the part number and everything. it's a really cheep part like $12 or something, but you have to drain the coolant obviously. im hopefully gonna be doing this in the next few weeks so i'll let you know haha

You also need to make an extension or pay another $120 for a hose.

Instructions here:

That's a great price! Don't get a used lower radiator hose, though. They're pretty inexpensive from the dealer and they get soft after a while.

ok i'll pick one up from the dealer tomorrow.. on my way to the city then.. i'm 2:30 hrs away from the closest and only Saab dealer in Atlantic Canada.

Not one of their mechanics or Master techs have done any modifications to their cars.. and no nothing about performance on their Saab's. Go figure eh?

How sad! Even at my local Saab dealer, which is like the ******* stepchild to their Audi, Mercedes, and Volvo dealerships, there are one or two slightly modified Saabs owned by employees.

I bet you could flip a profit if you can buy them out at $150CDN. People would pay $200 USD if they come with the 2 hoses. The only trick would be shipping.

I may just do that.. depends on their condition though.. they got back to me earlier and said 2 located in Ontario were damaged.. so I may only get a few of them.. I will definalty let people know if i get more.


Anyone try other intercoolers other than a viggie one? Any other cars work for a bolt on type? no modifications?

Well, the crappy scraps (or scrappy crap) 'round here always refer me to the same place, and they never have anything.

It's not the end of the world really, I DO have an I/C to be fit soon, it was for other bits and bobbles that I wanted.

I'll eventually find everything in due time.
