Yes, to some degree, but I also believe you need to buy a line or two, and rest you need to retro fit with a new banjo bolt and washer.

I can't really help with the wastegate, but just a tip for the banjo bolts-just pay the fortune Saab asks for them because it will be worth it to get steel ones. I got some made by Earl's and they were aluminum and just snapped when I tightened down the coolant lines 'doh!'

You can have the big *** one that came off my Holset :D not sure if it'd fit, though, I think it was pretty long.

Another issue with the one I have is I think the spring is supposed to be super stiff and so not sure if you want that.. I'll try to look up the dimensions of it though; I believe someone else with an HX35 is using or has used a T25 internal wastegate temporarily so I wonder if it would work both ways. I'll get back to you if anything.

The HX35 wastegate is approximately 10" long. Seems like it'd be too long but it is adjustable. Probably not worth whatever trouble it'd bring.
