    Question Saab 93 and Vectras

    My dad has just bought a 07 plate Saab 93 vector Sport with a 1.9 diesel 150 hp engine. As they are both GM's (at the time atleast), is that the same unit that's in some vecs?

    My brother has got a Saab 1.9 ttdi 180bhp.
    If the engine is the same as a Vec 1.9 150bhp why cant you just bolt on another turbo like the Saab does. ?

    Or is it not as simple as that?

    The saab's turbos are a combined unit that run sequentially - you could fit them to a vx if you could source the turbo unit AND the engine management software to make it run.

    Ive got a Saab TTiD BSR'd to 215 bhp with 450 nm, there is no turbo lag whatsoever, you are on boost from 1000 rpm, superb engine.
