Its a bit of a tight space but if you are ok with cars and you have access to a ramp its not to difficult. More time consuming. :)

And welcome to SaabCentral Win, our first Japanese member i suspect. :cool:

As Finn said if you do the replacement at the weekend there should be no problem, so long as you have the correct tools/facilities.

put in a new turbo this weekend myself. I agree with the guys, if youre OK with cars its not so difficult, but its very tight (I have cuts and bruises to prove it:) ). Take out the housing for the radiator-fans to make some better space, and use new copper washers for the oil- and waterleads for the turbo. Its also very important that everything is as clean as possible. You dont want to get dirt inside your new turbo!!!

Thanks yes she is mine! ;) (well mine and Mastercard's :roll: )

Ok the exhaust is a full 3" JT system with race catalytic converter and 3" downpipe from the manifold, its nice and rumbly but not too loud, it has a custom made stainless rear silencer which is quieter than the original 3" JT back box. http://www.partsforsaabs.com/product_info.php?cPath=104_279_281&products_id=1541

Changing from fabric to leather seats is easy, unless you buy electric ones, if your car has manual seats and you buy electric ones I would recommend having them fitted. If you are just swapping manual cloth ones for manual leather ones its a simple job! ;)
