TURBO REPLACEMENT

1998 SAAB 9000

Engine Performance problem
1998 Saab 9000 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 126000 miles

Hi Team - I have a SAAB 9000 CSE 2.3 turbo (aniversary model). Recently the turbo died - I had my local garage fit a used replacement, supplied by me.

The engine runs fine but turbo is very poor performance compared with the one that died, which was spectacular.

The replacement had '9000 AERO' written on it.

The first replacement sent was the wrong sort and the AERO one replaced it. The supplier said he didn't expect to find this turbo on my model of car.

Can you please shed any light on how to regain my old performance car?

Many thanks
