So, when I look at 2006-2008 9-5 Aero throttle body compared to the '02 Viggen and the 03 Viggen clone( I have both 9-5 bodies/plus my wagon's manifold out but I am relying on memory for Viggen casting details) there is an absence of the Viggen's additional passageway into the intake manifold. The Viggen's manifold has an opening?? for this passageway cast into the manifold (casting also has "2.3" in the casting). The '06 - '08 9-5 intake has remnents of this additional passage in the casting but no opening nor can one be opened up. The throttle body gasket seals are completely different. The 9-5's is a an "o" ring while the Viggen has an additional "seal" apendage added to seal the extra passageway. Several hose nipple locations and the way they are configured are also different. Off-hand the configurations appears to fullfill the same functions so I think a 9-5 throttle body would possibly work on a Viggen but probably not the reverse for 2006-2008. I have no experience with the older 9-5s so its probable those throttle bodies are the same as the Viggens. I will pull the Viggen throttle body and confirm this. It's possible that I am remembering incorrectly as its been a few years since I actually looked at the Viggen intake casting with the throttle removed.
I do have the King Cobra on the Viggen plus some other "stuff". I have seen a number of 2006 9-5s in the salvage yard and pulled throttle bodies and King Cobras plus turbos/short turbine nose for the other Viggen and the '08 wagon. Every '06 9-5 I have come across (3 so far) have throttle bodies with very good wiring insulation. Thanks for info guys! I will look at this some more and report back. If anyone has actually done the swap I would like to hear how it turned out.
