Is there an aftermarket exhaust available for the 2007 2.8t AERO that i am unable to find, or does it not exist yet?

Has anyone else made any kind of swap with the dual?

I think any of the exhausts for the 2006 models will work for the 07's. Honestly though, I would just get some aftermarket mufflers, go to a muffler shop, and have them make one for you. Probably save you a few 100$.

I don't think the exhaust would make a difference for stage 1. And I think it's the downpipe you would need to change first if it did.

I think it would be far more economical to pick up two mufflers and have them installed by a local shop. These exhaust kits seem way overpriced compared to what some have paid for "custom" work.

I have seen the 3" downpipes for the 2.0's for sale, but nothing for the 2.8T anywhere. Any of the 2.8T SS owners here running the 3" downpipes?

Doesn't the Maptun exhaust come with a 3" downpipe and then it is 2.5" from the cat back? I agree that it is probably overkill from a performance perspective for a Stage 1 tune. However, if the primary goal of the purchaser is to proved a "sportier" sound, the Maptun exhaust may be the ticket. Does anyone have the Maptun installed and can comment on the difference in sound between the stock and Maptun?

The only drawback for the Hirsch product is that it doesn't come with a modified downpipe. The Maptun exhaust appears to have a 3" downpipe as part of the package.

if you have a chance, take out your 2.8t downpipe. Its about 3-3.25" after the 1st CAT.
If I remember correctly, the 2.8t has got 2-3 CATs. 2 less restrictive and one more restrictive one. the 3rd one is the most restrictive. after downpipe, its about 2.75" instead of 2.5"

For the Saabs, its not the downpipe that is the bottle neck, its the CATs. plus the downpipe isn't that long. for the 2.8t, its the longest of all the 93SS. it goes all the way to somewhere at the flexipipe or something. can't remember. go under the car and take a look.


Cheers
