We dare to promiss that this is the Absolute best performance intercooler on the market for SAAB 900/9-3!
This performance intercooler is developed by do88 to replace the original / OEM intercooler and gives true performance without the need of rebuilding the whole car! This is certainly the most elaborate intercooler on the market for this car. This intercooler is so maxed in size that it utilizes every available millimeter in front.
Significant advantages with do88 performance intercooler (OEM intercooler):
- Core volume: 10397cm3 (4675cm3), do88 is 222% larger!
- Air flow at 0,15bar/2,18psi pressure drop: 325CFM (267CFM), do88 22% higher!
- Post intercooler air temperature at same conditions: 33°C (73°C), do88 40°C lower! See diagram below!
- Fits all cars in list below! (See installation guide for details.)
This model of the intercooler is known as a Cross-Flow / X-flow intercooler. That is an intercooler which has the inlet on one side and the outlet on the other. SAAB 900 (94-) and the first years of 9-3 (98-99) do not have the Cross-Flow intercooler from factory, but an intercooler with inlet / outlet on the same side.
To install this intercooler on cars that do not have Cross-Flow from factory also need to replace the intercooler hoses. We also sell these hoses, see the link to this product under accessories in the bottom of this page "SAAB 900 9-3 94-00 Cross-Flow Hoses".
do88 performance intercooler are an all aluminium construction with cad designed, flow optimized cast end tanks and optimized core design (570x240x76mm) to achieve best possible cooling efficiency combined with lowest possible pressure drop!
Always remember that the OEM intercooler was designed for the power level the car was built for and a power increase or even very hard use of the car in a standard version may cause that the OEM intercooler don’t have the performance you need. So only after engine software tune do88 performance intercooler will give a performance increase over the OEM intercooler!
The OEM intercooler have plastic tanks that don’t keep up with higher boost levels very well so the do88 performance intercooler will also add reliability!
do88 performance intercooler comes with all brackets which necessary for an safe and easy installation.
