This one?

http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/p...roducts_id=433

Staright swap for the stock unit, dont even have to remove the front bumper

The Forge we fitted had no bracket for the oil cooler though so we had to fabricate that, the Abbott ones have this already

I personally dont find them as good as a FMIC which I had before, but its way easier to fit and they do help you to reach and maintain peak performance more reliably

Just to confirm, is the stock intercooler sandwiched between the a/c condenser and the radiator? (2004 Aero Auto)
