I read that Saab 9-3's have 2 different turbos. How can I tell which one I have?

I have a 2003 Saab 9-3 Vector that is fully loaded.

Mitsubushi TD04 (Not all TD04 are the same, its a common housing size used by multiple auto manufacturers)

The linears (2.0t) use garrett turbos

has anyone here swapped turbos in their Saabs before.

I've gotten to realise these cars are very touchy when it comes to "changing" anything. Apparently everything throws codes.

I was also wondering if anyone has swapped ECU's out of another model of Saab + parts and were able to run it without problems.

If not theres always time for testing ;)

Yes, Only in Asia. I don't know why, but it could be a more tolerant and liberal setting.

In the states, try, at least you'll know if it works or not.
