: Good exhaust?

Whats the best SAE (sport auto exhaust) that i can get that is of a decent price?
SPG9's 600$ kit is too pricy and i want a full system.
Ive seen the page that compares all performance saab sites but i want to hear from people who have bought them themselves.
Is the SAS exhaust good?

The original exhaust is good for 200+ hp, so if you are lookin for extra sound, get a SAE, but for extra power it shouldn't make that big difference compared to stock.

If you want to have a full system - downpipe included, that is - 600$ isn't exactly expensive. JT system costs about 500$ in Sweden, and that's a 3" system with an improved down pipe.

But, like Tom said, exhaust alone isn't going to improve power greatly. However, a free-fow system does give you extra flow capacity to cope with other performance modifications.

Is it possible to buy an exhaust that attaches to the stock pipe and have a downpipe custom made?
I understand that 500$ may be "cheap" but im simply a highschool kid that doesnt have that much to spend.
Besides my stock one is shot and needs to be replaced anyway.

Will a free flowing exhaust system help with horsepower on a lightly modified 2.3 non-turbo??

It actualy might decrease hp due the larger pipe diameter.
With a turbo it can keep the back pressure up, but on a na car it needs the diameter it has to keep pressure up.

There is a shop in Kentucky call SAAB Savior (; they have a rather eclectic assortment of SAAB accessories, and offer a complete 900t exhaust system (downpipe to tailpipe) in stainless steel for around USD$600.
