I’m getting a b234/5 hybrid with 5k miles since rebuild getting fitted to my 9-5 next week :lol: :lol:

Need to decide on a turbo set up - will a gt2871r with t25 flange be okay on the standard manifold?

Or should I go with a TD04-19t bolt on?

If i went with the bigger gt28 what sort of intake would I need?

Biggest problem with the gt28 is the downpipe side, not so much the intake.

the exhaust housing is a standard garret 5 bolt setup and not the saab 3 bolt round one.

Would I need a custom made downpipe side then? Or is there some sort of ‘adapter’ that can be fitted to the 5 bolts?

Custom made or at least a normal 3" one modified with different end & flange on it.

Something like this can help.
