Default Magnaflow #14833...

...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.

here's the pics...

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!!!

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

This is the catalog picture

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.

Single 3.5" doublewall, Oval, angled Magnaflow SS.

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. 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.

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.
