And you wonder why it is taking so long to get your setup installed? You and Hustler should start a support group.

So you going to go with that Saab turbo Rican? If not I think I mgiht have to pick it up an officially begin my diy setup. This and a nice rebuild kit would be a good use of leftover text book money.

for a 1.8 you want to find a t3 with a .50 trim compressor wheel in the least.

some t3's have a .40 wheel which is too small, .45 wheel will spool quickly, but will kinda suck up top.




Lars, shoot me a line before you buy anything so I can make sure get something good. Cause I'm sure you'll want me to help install and such.

that one looks good.


i wish these came with the compact swingarm/wastegate. if you want to buy the premade downpipe from begi this wont work. ill elaborate if you want me to. but that looks to be in great condition. good luck.

Rican, this is originally Tomwa but I had to make a new account because the other one was bugged and riddled with issues not loading pages on the site.

I have a T3 from a Saab for sale it's in the for sale section under Tomwa and "Turbo Parts for Sale" I can get you all the info if you want.

Ah...it's good to have a working account again. though i spend most of my time lurking.
