Gt diesel

I'm looking at a 2004 GT Diesel and wondered if the engine had the swirl arm issues that the Saab unit had and also will it have a DPF?
Many thanks

I didnt know until a while ago but my info suggests the gt in this country never had a dpf fitted and its not the jtdm with swirl flaps.Another good reason to run a gt rather than a prettier looking 159

Don't think the 04 will have them , mine hasn't

Think they got introduced in later models

Do a search there's a couple of threads on here about them .

Swirl flaps that is , dont know about DPF's

No swirls (2006 onwards)

No DPFs (don't think any GT has them - but the 2004 defo won't)

Spot on for both

The 04 GT has the CF3 engine, no flaps
