Saab 9-3

Asked by May 18, 2016 at 07:44 PM about the 2003 Saab 9-3 Linear

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2003 automatic 9-3 linear. I want a manual
now and converting an auto to a manual is a pain
in the asssss i have heard. Well I have seen a
manual 9-3 2003 and I'm almost positive it is a
linear too but it has 180000 miles. I was wondering
if I could take the motor out of my 9-3 (the
automatic) and put it in the other 9-3 (the manual)
without any complications like ECU's? Not very
experienced with this so I wanted to get a better
perspective and advice. I would greatly appreciate
it!!
