...was installed on my Vector today (pics to follow). I am very satisfied with the sound. It has a very deep rumble to it and with the JR filter it really sounds like a euro race car! Compared to the Borla catback exhaust I have on my Toy pickup, the magnaflow is far superior in sound. In addition, it is not loud inside the cabin at all even when all windows and sunroof are closed. But for the most part, I had all my windows and sunroof open coming back from the shop just to hear the deeeep, bassy sound! I highly recommend it. 8)

That's great news!! I ordered the same exact muffler a few days ago, should be here on Friday. Can't wait to experience it for myself. Going to install an IGT filter that I ordered too. Where in the bay area did you get it installed at? What was the cost? Would you recommend them? Thanks in advance.

SaabAnimal,
I had this installed at a shop in Fremont, Ca. Cost $200 for part and installation. You can find magnaflow dealers closer to where you are under 'dealers' at magnaflow's website.

Congrats! Looks really nice.

Wow, when I got the Magnaflow on my Merlot Red 9-3 SS since April 2003, didn't know that the Magnaflow would catch on so well here with some of you fellow saaber's!!! :cheesy:

I'm suprised nobody has bought this one. I think these tips look the best. It would fill out the hole in the valence more.

I got the slightly smaller version of that (3" tips vs 3.5") the 14815, I ordered it on Friday. I should have it installed by the end of the week (I'm not cutting out for the decor kit - at least not yet). I'll post pics

I got the SS muffler/tips seperate as to they did not have the tip i wanted on the ones that are already loaded with the tip. I wanted to go for the more euro/oem approach.

I have the 14815 too, and it looks really good, and fits just perfectly with the decor kit from saab. I also took out the resonator and replaced it with straight piping, it sounds soooo crazy! I set off car alarms! But it may be too much for some. :D I'll have a pic really soon. By the way, let me know if u really want to have a listen at all our cars.

Where do you purchase the magnaflow exhaust system, i am very interested in buying it.

See www.magnaflow.com for dealers

I did a search for the 14833 muffler on google and found it at http://www.exhaustproslinc.com/ for about $140 w/free shipping. I think I'll probably get it from there, especially since there won't be tax on it.

I believe this is the one you are looking for:
http://www.exhaustproslinc.com/magstreetser13.html

I'm no muffler expert, but seeing as other people on the forums have installed the 14833 model, I guess anything under the 5" x 8" section will work.

Anyway, I have the decor kit being installed along with some other body work at the moment ... the muffler will be after i get it back. I'll post with my results. I'll also report on Husker (the website above) if they're good (or bad).

FYI, I just checked ebay, and there are 3 14833's available for $139 w/free shipping. Shouldn't be tax, either, depending on where you live. Hmmm, there might just be 2 available in a minute.

Just bought the 14815 muffler on eBay for 139.99 with free shipping. I am having the dealer install the decor kit and the muffler. Hopefully there won't be any problems.

I like that one too. Please report back after it's installed and let us know how you like the sound.

Magnaflow muffler came in today, #14815, ordered it on eBay from Performance Peddler. If anyone is looking to pick up a Magnaflow, this guy was very good, offered free shipping and fast service.

I didn't realize how big the twin 3" tips are, wow! I am still waiting for my decor kit from Saab, I'll post pics when it's installed.

I also just ordered a muffler from Performance Peddler. I don't think it's due in until Tuesday, but they did get it out to UPS the morning after I purchased it ... not bad! I also recommend them pending the arrival of the muffler, of course! $139 no tax or shipping for the 14833.

Hey Guys,

I am a bit new to SaabCentral so hopefully I posted this correctly. Just had a quick question.
I am thinking about getting a Magnaflow muffler installed, everyone seems to be happy with it. Can someone email me some photos of their car with the muffler on it (rear and side views of the muffler). My email is Matthew.Path@gmail.com
For some reason my computer hear at work doesn't show photos posted on this site very well.
I currently have a BSR exhaust and it sounds nice, but I want more sound and I think it looks huge underneath the car (maybe becuase I have a Linear which has no body kit like the Arc or Aero).
So the plan is to remove the BSR muffler and attach the MagnaFlow. It should work I think, both have an inlet of 2.5"? Well BSR says 2.25" while the MagnaFlow is 2.5"?
And how much mod is needed to fit it underneath the car is the MagnaFlow is too long, like I read on the other postings?

I don't think the pictures not showing is a problem on your end! This is a 4 year old thread so the pics are probably off the server. Oviously you took the time to use "Search" ;)

Post a new thread in the Workshop forum, you'll get more responses.

I have since removed my Magnaflow and replaced with the stock setup. The fitment was fine, but the sound was borderline obnoxoius. It's not that I don't like loud exhausts, my other car is an '89 Mustang 5.0 with 2 chamber flowmasters, but the 4 cyl motor just didn't do it any justice.

Looks like I should have gone with the BSR setup, as I am looking for a bit louder than stock.

does this exhaust bolt right up?

Does anyone have any videos or sound clips or pics?

Thanks for the info

The BSR 2.5" exhaust is an easy install. It works with the rubber hangers already on your car. If you have a Linear model you will need a decor kit ($45 at Saab) for the cut out of the bumper required.

That aside I decided to keep the BSR exhaust, it is only a little bit luder than stock, but you can definetly tell the difference. And if you actualy get the BSR ver (because BSR, Jetex, and Simons 2.5" Catback are the same) it will have BSR engraved on the tail pipe which I think is a nice touch.

robhurlburt

do you know where i can get the BSR, and the price?

Sound clips/pics?

Thanks!

Well there are a few places you can get the BSR/Jetex/Simons 2.5" exhaust. I got mine from genuinesaab.com. They are located in Springfield, Missouri. The guys name is Nick and he is the only guy I know of that offers a lot of performance stuff for Saab. The rest comes from other sites like partsforsaabs.com, but they are located in the UK so you pay some high shipping costs.

And in regards to a video clip I couldnít find one with the purpose of the exhaust. If you YouTube Saab BSR you can find a black Saab with the BSR PPC and exhaust. You can hear it when he is speeding around etc.

I will tell you from personal experience that the BSR exhaust is really quiet in the sense of what you expect from an aftermarket exhaust. Itís made to add some extra power and still keep the low profile sound. Itís only a few dec louder than stock, but looks great and definitely makes a difference in performance.
