i recently had a friend that gave me everything for the turbo off of his saab 2.3. My question is, what will i all need to put this on my 318ti? I know i will need a new exaust manifold, I will prob. make one, or modify the saab one (i am a metal fabricator), will i need anything else to do this? Also is this even a very smart idea, my car has a little over 80k mile on it as of right now.

I'm not an expert on turbo's, but the most expensive thing on a turbo system isn't the turbo itself, it's the custom piping, the custom intake manifold, the intercooler and the fuel management system. It really doesn't matter what car the turbo came off of. You won't be able to use any of the SAAB parts. You'll need to find an adjustable rising rate fuel pressure regulator and possibly run larger injectors. There's no advantage in getting everything off that SAAB, the only thing you can use is the turbo and you can buy those for a few hundred dollars used.

I would contact Korman BMW and see if they would sell you just the piping or the manifold.
