Try a breakers yard you will need 3 pipes ;turbo to cooler, cooler to manifold and possibly a new airflow meter to turbo hose. alsom the bottom radiator hose may need changing and so may the horn on that side. Fitting is fairly straight forward. Tips; try to get post 90' pipes as these flow the gases better, flush it out inside and out, make sure all the clamps and rubber seals are secure as they can blow off, make sure you get the headlight back plate and side baffles to direct the air thru the cooler. advantages; a bit more economy possibly and the max boost may stay up there longer before its cuts back by the .APC Disadvantages; Increased turbo lag due to the realy appauling gas flow of the pipes and cooler. I can honestly say it won't be as much fun to drive if you like that big turbo surge. Breakers especialy Saab specialists charge a bomb for these kits S/H. Spend the cash on a sports exhaust instead to get rid of that back pressure! All the best John
