Yes, it is very possible to install the TD04 turbo to replace the GT-17 turbo that your linear came with. However, the key is that you need the oil lines from the TD04 - you cannot use the lines from the Garrett. There are quite a few threads on this in the forums. Also, once you install the TD04 you will need to update your ECU to reflect the upgrade in hardware.would it be possible to put a new aero turbo on my 2003 9-5 linear? ?
keep a lookout in the for sale section here for them. They turn up every once in awhile. As for the ECU, members here offer tuning for around $150.thanks for the reply! are the oil lines hard to get? is it expensive/hard to update my ECU ?
I reused my stock oil and coolant lines without any problems, Just nhave to get the proper 12mm banjo bolts with proper sized copper crush washers. No leaks on mine....well I have a leak on my coolant return but thats cause my hose to the throtle body is cracking and I have yet to replace it ;oops:you cannot use the lines from the Garrett.

Many people have swapped the turbo for the much more reliable td04....I have also done this for my car. Tuning the ecu can be done by one of the many tuners available, some as low as 150 and others much much higher. Not a job for someone just getting into tuning cars, I would leave that up to the many trusted folks around here who have tuned and studied the tuning mods for these carsmy turbo went on my 9-5 linear, so if i order the aero turbo and put it in and tune my ECU along with buying the proper coolant lines and banjo bolts will it give me problems down the line? as far as messing with the engines pressure?? Also is it hard or easy to tune my cars ECU? how do i do that? thanks so much
It "should" but who knows until you try and install it. The ad doesn't give a lot of info...i was thinking of getting this onehttp://www.ebay.com/itm/TD04HL-19T-Upgrade-SAAB-9-3-9-5-2-3L-Aero-B235R-B205R-B235L-Turbo-Turbocharger-/270890196682?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3f12505eca&vxp=mtr do you know if this will be a direct bolt on with this cobra pipe from BCB? http://www.brewcityboost.com/KRONA_COBRA_p/krona-honeybadger.htm
