Car Models: 900 turbo
Hi guys.
I am struggling to find a replacent turbo for my '92 saab 900 turbo S. Will a TD05 bolt straight on, or does it need to be the TB03? I have an aftermarket rad & intercooler to go on and full system exhaust.

Is the existing turbo goosed?
Many can be refurbished quite easily........ or are you looking to upgrade?

Do you have a T3 (TB03) or TE-05 (note this is physically much smaller than a TD-05.

I believe there is a hybrid TE-05 using the 16T compressor wheel from a 9000 aero turbo.
That will be good for more than enough power to shred your gearbox. Careful mapping will be the order of the day.
Try Martin at Jamsaab for the hybrid.

I don't think you'll find anything will bolt straight on other than a turbo specifically for a c900.
At the very least the housings will need to be orientated to suit the installation.
If you are using the original manifold then you are limited to turbos with a T3 flange unless you start messing about with adaptors or other mods.
Some of the Volvo TD04 have a similar turbine flange but will still require modifications to fit.
Best thing to do would be to have one of the original units rebuilt and upgraded to suit your needs.
In my view first thing to do is move the battery and replace the standard cast downpipe elbow with a nice sweeping outlet pipe of at least 2.5 inch dia.

Thanks guys. Yeah it is a little smokey, not bothered about upgrading, its just that the turbos are hard to find. Where else the td05 are easily available. I'll keep looking for a stock replacement.

You will be wanting a TE-05(echo) then........ this is a very different thing to a TD-05 (delta).

I replaced mine last year, I found a few places were happy to supply a refurbished turbo on an exchange basis.
