I'm going to be looking at changing the turbo once I get near the bottom of the list of jobs.

A mate has recommended a TD05 16t.

Has anyone here changed their turbo for a TD05? Was it direct fit or needing a bit of modifying and what sort of improvement in power did you get? Cheers

TD-05 or TD-04?

The 05 will be hugely laggy and have a spool threshold somewhere north of 3500rpm.

The td-04 would be nicely suited to the engine (although may need a custom manifold for a 16T - which were fitted to 9000 and 9-5 models). Power output would be in the region of 300bhp with appropriate supporting mods.

There is a direct fit td-04 (14t I think). That's good for about 270bhp or thereabouts.

Thank you for the reply mate.

As far as I'm aware my car is a TD04 14t as standard.

Is the 16T my best option?

I would suggest fixing the head gasket :wink:
Then a 3" downpipe, Intercooler and remap first before a new turbo.

If I remember right, a new turbo will need new injectors, uprated fuel pump and most likely a manifold too...... plus probably a beefier clutch.
You also wouldn't want that level of power on standard brakes and suspension.

Yep, all jobs on my list haha. The K-seal is just a temporary fix and once I'm earning again head gasket is top of my list. Then an updated clutch. I'm just building my knowledge so I'm not jumping in blind and it's not the top of my list so the more I learn the better

TD05 will probable be off a scooby or an evo - both use unique flanges & nothing like the saab one.

Evo TD05 is twin scroll.
