it will do a fair bit because its a turbo. Boost will increase because it has a bigger zorst so you are making extra power in two ways. Also the saab 9000 turbos have the potential to make 188kW at the flywheel by simply holding the peak torque all the way to redline (which isnt hard on a turbo, just use an aftermarket boost controller)

what size is the engine? i thought they were only large 4's, isn't 3" a tad big? maybe 2 1/2" or 2 3/4"?
I'd still do the exhaust, at least then it's done for after the rebuild has been done!

Isn't 3" too big then? I would of thought 2 1/2" would be the go. 3" seems to be what people fit to turbo 6 cylinders which have a fair bit larger capacity!

NO, you cant go to big on a turbo. On a N/A you can have problems with scavenging with too big an exhaust

It won't do as much as some people say because its from the CAt BACK. The dump is still quite a restriction. If the dump was a 3" as well then it would be a worthwhile mod.
