The best SAAB 9-3 1.8t 2.0t 2003- performance intercooler on the market!
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!
Significant advantages with do88 performance intercooler (OEM intercooler):
- Core volume: 13770m3 (7411cm3), do88 is 86% larger!
- Air flow at 0,15bar/2,18psi pressure drop: 356CFM (218CFM), do88 63% higher!
See diagram below!
- Post intercooler air temperature at same conditions: 27°C (45°C), do88 18°C lower!
See diagram below!
- Fits all cars in list below! (See installation Instruction)!
do88 performance intercooler are an all-aluminum construction with cad designed, flow optimized cast end tanks and optimized core design 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 has 2,5" (63mm) hose connections instead of 2,25‰ (57mm) as the OEM intercooler. We decided to make the hose connections larger since we see a significant flow improvement with the larger hose connections. Because of this we include two silicone hoses that replace the OEM inlet and outlet intercooler hoses.
A common misunderstanding is that an intercooler installed in this position cannot provide good performance and a front mounted intercooler / FMIC would be much better. But actually the do88 performance intercooler are far better than most FMIC installations where only a core with small front surface are possible to install and often also installed partially behind the bumper beam which will reduce cooling capacity even further and often cooling below the OEM intercooler are achieved.
do88 performance intercooler comes with all hardware necessary for installation. This intercooler has of course all brackets for radiator, AC-condenser and air guides.

There are two choices you need to make when ordering this intercooler in the two drop lists above the green ‰ÛÏAdd to chart‰ button.
1. Color: Three different hose colors are available, Blue / Black / Red. There are no difference in performance between the colors, you just chose the color you prefer.
2. Gearbox: Chose gearbox according to the car the intercooler will be installed on.
