||NO DEREK YUO JUST FIT IT THE ALTONATOR WILL CHARGE WHICHEVER WAY IT SPINS ALTHOUGH YOU MAY FIND THAT THE COOLING FAN EFECT MAY BE REVERSED AS IT WILL SPIN THE WRONG WAY BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN A PROBLEM ON MY CAR AS I HAVE DONE THIS SWAP AND GOT A 70AMP ALTERNATOR AT A STROKE YOU JUST ALTER THE WIRING AT THE BACK I HAVE A DIAGRAM I COULD FIND FOR YOU IF REQ ALL THE BEST JAKE
||PS IM ASUMING YOU ARE FITTING THIS TO A V4
||Yes, the alternator will charge regardless of the way it's rotating but if you want it to have the cooling air going front to back the same as the 96 you have to swap pulleys. My 35amp std one is working fine. I'd consider upgrading if I was going to fit extra lights or a heated rear window.
||No need for upgrading when you have a heated rear window unless you really want to. Saab never upgraded the alternator when they started to instal that as a standard feature.
