    Default Almost had a new mod, but not to be.

    Meant to post this earlier......

    Whilst I was recently removing and refitting the turbo, I thought it may be an idea to replace the turbo hoses with some better uprated ones, especially as I'm running higher boost with the Stage 3 - so Samco hoses sounded like a good option. As I'd also had to drain the coolant to take the turbo off, I thought I may as well do those ones at the same time. So off I went to the Samco web site to have a look.

    They didn't list any kits for the Vectra C / Signum at all, so I looked under Saab and yep, they had both kits for the 9-3 SS 2.0T. As these two models have the exactly the same engine, I wondered if this kit would fit. The only reason they wouldn't would have been if things like the intercooler connection and coolant expansion tank were in different places on the Saab than on mine - which was a distinct possibility.

    Anyway, thought I'd take a punt and ordered them, and these two little beauts arrived.....

    Coolant hose kit




    I offered a few of the pipes up to the car and whilst I could see that some would have fitted, I quickly saw that some wouldn't, due to the different position and angle of things like the intercooler connector etc., so that scuppered that one. Sent them back and got a refund. Also e-mailed Samco asking if they had any plans to make kits for the Vectra C / Signum, particularly the 2.0T.
