    Post Install 2.3 Aero turbo charger on 2.3t

    Hi All,
    This is my first post on this web site.
    Thank you for all the information that you have provides on this web site, I have learned a lot from that, specially Frank Wulfers.
    I just pick up another 2003 Saab 9-5 2.3t, the previous owner said the Turbo not working, the car check engine light(CEL) on, I read the code, it show P1105,
    I check this web site and read the P1105 issue, and I changed the pressure sensor, reset the CEL, the CEL came back.
    I just pick up a 2003 9-5 aero turbo charger from the auto wreck, the shaft and bearing are smooth, if I install this on my 2.3t. What can happen? Will this will blow up my engine?
    Please advise.

    Thank you
    Vay

    Did you also pick up the lines? Good if you did as the washers are not the same size. Otherwise no problem on the exchange. You need to get an ECU update to reflect the Aero. You can do that anytime.

    Thanks Mike, I will do that this weekend and will keep you post. I got both short line to the turbocharger, I did not get the long line from the Thermostat to the turbocharger. Do I need the long line from the thermostat to the turbocharger?
    What can I use to clean the inside of the turbocharger before I install it?
    What I need to do before I install the turbocharger? Thank you, Vay.

    How much did the used AERO turbo cost you?
    Have you installed it yet?
