  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Guys, a quick couple of questions. 1. Is the replacement turbo for the TTID really nearly £900, just for the parts? 2. How often do they go? 3. Any way of checking if there is an issue with it, bar stripping the whole thing down? 4. Is it possible to get it successfully reconditioned? Any...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Recently joined this forum as I have just picked up a 2009 TTiD Aero Estate for a steal-price, the deal was NO warranty and it is a very high mileage car. I am an engineer/mechanic myself so I am not too concerned if something goes wrong. Anyway I thing I know that the small turbo is broken...
  3. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have an Anni with a B234R set up from 1998. I also have a 2.3l eco Anni. How many items would I need to change over to make one into the other? Reason is: the body and engine on the B234R are warn and tired. The eco has a good engine (done a lot less miles, clean as a whistle under the cam...

    Hi guys, After some excellent previous advice on the forum I replaced my failing turbo on my 9-3 Coupe, 2001 Y reg, 185bhp. Once I confirmed which Turbo I needed: GT17 (52) 452204-3 Saab PN: 55560913 I used TurboActive in the end, and they were ok, It was £305 (inclusive of delivery) for a...

  6. Saab News
    A word about where Saab used to be….remember when they used to say the power of a six (or even a V8) from a turbocharged four? Nowadays, normally aspirated engines have become quite powerful. Things that probably seem quite simple today like four valaves per cylinder and valve timing and even...

  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi guys Having (9 moths ago) bought a 2002 model 9-3 TiD (5-door) it is going into the garage for its second turbo replacement! First one went at 41k, when I had only had the car 3 weeks, and it has just destroyed a second one at 50k. Is there anything (oil starvation ? or similar) I should be...

    Hi, Has anybody got, or know here there is, a list of what Turbo's were fitted to all SAAB's TIA
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Bought a Saab 9-5 SE Auto August 04. Two weeks later turbo went, replaced under car plan warranty. Nearly two years later need another new turbo, cost £1,200!! Why would the turbo go in such a short space of time?
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    If I was to compare the performance of a brand new turbo with a 130k mile turbo, would I notice any difference? Assuming of course that the 130k mile turbo has no mechanical issues. Do the turbine blades wear at all? Does it become less efficient? I assume the ECU will always try and drive...
  12. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Morning folks, I have bought a lovely CS 2.3 Turbo-S (MY '92) whilst I source another cylinder head for my '92 CS Carlsson. The gear stick appears to have too much sideways movement on it, but it selects gears fine with the exception of 5th, whereby I have to gently lift the reverse 'collar' to...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Afternoon everybody, This might seem a possibly silly question, but I have just acquired a 92MY 2.3 CS Turbo-S and, as I have a same year auto CS Carlsson that I will be splitting, I just wanted to know how easy or practical it would be to give my Turbo-S the extra 20 bhp that you get with a...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    People, I've just acquired a beautiful 92 CS 2.3 Turbo-S with only 95K in the clock and it really is a lovely car. It drives wonderfully but last night as I joined a motorway and attempted to accelerate, it started to 'hunt' at about 60 mph. When I backed off to about 60, it was fine, but if I...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi there, Are the turbos fitted to 9-5 Aero's particularly fragile? Several people of this site seem to have had to replace theirs. Assuming that the car is seviced in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations, what is a reasonable life expectancy of the turbo in a 2.3 HOT Aero...

    Can someone tell me what the difference is between the TD04HL-15G-6 and the TD04HL-15T-6 please? Is one better than the other or is it it just something particular to a certain car year? Thanks 9k
