Default Saab H-type turbo in a EJ25?

I've seen directions on using a Saab 900 turbo intercooler, but I was wondering about actually using the turbo unit itself. from what I understand, those things are about as bulletproof as they come. Saab's one of the best at turbo. The H-type was the 16-valve 2.0L they threw their turbos on in teh late 80s/ early 90s. I think they still use it. anyhow, getting the APC box, turbo, and intercooler from a pick-apart yard would be no problem. there are tons of them lying around. has anybody tried this before?

I dunno exactly. they're pretty compact, yet bulletproof. htey can handle well over 20 lbs of boost. the manifold on a saab is massive. it looks like it was taken off an old 7 liter V8 ford or something. I have a saab sitting in my driveway. I'll take some measurements when I get home.

The SAAB 900's use Air Research turbos. Air Research I believe is a division of Turbonetics. The SAAB turbo is probably a variation of a T3 and sized a little too small for the 2.5 since SAAB 900 motors <I think> are 2.0L and lower compression. It will work, in fact you'd be better off than using an older Subaru turbo and you can get one for a good price. Expect quick spool up and a rather weak top end. Similar to a supercharger.

On a side note, the SAAB 900's also come with BOSCH BOV's which is the same as stock Porsche turbos, and my 93.

yeah, this is another iteration of that same old tune - "A turbo don't mean a thing if you ain't got the plumbing, fuel delivery, and engine management"
