Default switchingT-25 to td-04

My turbo on my 91' 9000 has been smoking pretty bad at idle and I figure it's time for a new one. I can get a td-04 for the same price as a t-25 but my question is what else do I need to make the switch? Is the exhaust manifold the same? Oil lines? Exhaust down pipe? Thanks

The manifold and downpipe are the same, I think, but you need to change the oil and water lines plus the actuator and to get the benefit out of it you need an aero ECU or a remap.

Where can I get oil and water lines from? Can I just make some up with materials at the local auto store? My ecu is chipped with the saab performance fuel eprom and apc upgrade. I contacted them and they claim this configuration will work better with the td-04.

Oil and water lines should be a straight swap, and as you have already mentioned the chips will work okay, in fact the standard APC will work as well.

the bango fittings on the td04 are smaller than the t25 so you will need to replace the lines

sorry marrk
