To my knowledge (which may be wrong) the non-turbo 2.3 liter engine is IDENTICAL to the turbo 2.3 liter with the exception of the turbo, exhaust system, fuel injection chip, and probably a wiring harness. So my question is did Saab use the same wiring harness (IMHO the messiest part of the deal) so I could just bolt on the parts I need from the turbo version, or would it be better to get some other after market system? -- Dan Mattrazzo ------------------------ Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ Before you buy.
