    A couple weeks ago I stopped at a light when driving home in my 2004 9-3 linear. When I went to pull away the passenger side tire started making a knocking sound each revolution which gats worse with speed. So far I have put the spare on to see if it was the tire but it did not help. When I...

    What is the best turbo to go to to replace the stock turbo? Which is the easiest to just bolt on? And how much of a difference will it make? Do I need to change the downpipe and turbo piping? What about the 16T and 19T turbo? I'm a newbie to saabs, any help would be much appreciated.
