So not something I can just mount back up with some brackets? What kind of price am I thinking here? ( I know very little about cars unfortunately. Give me credit for admitting that here. Haha.)As a follow-up I'd suggest a custom cat back (high grade stainless steel) from an exhaust shop as opposed to oem to save $$ if the current system can't be fixed without replacement. An exhaust specialist as opposed to a Saab specialist would be ideal
The low power problem could persist after the exhaust is fixed (seeing as that slight drop in back pressure shouldn't really affect the ecu or boost pressure), but start with the obvious
Given the condition of the exhaust (falling apart) it is most likely a replace rather than repair.So not something I can just mount back up with some brackets?
No there are no saab dealers up here in northern Wisconsin. It was some local dealer my mother said. Where they lived before down in Arizona. I don't have any kind of money to fix something that's this expensive. My job relies on me driving so now I'm in a touch spot. Haha. That was the reason for ALL the ugh's. Guess that's the way the world works 🤷Do you know who did all that work? Can they do exhaust work? Is it a Saab shop?
It doesn't have to be a Saab dealer just a shop that has knowledge of them, where in Wisconsin? Put the name of your town in here:I wish I had chosen anything in the Army other than an Infantryman. So I could have learned shop.
I live near Eau Claire. And yes. You have to go out and get things. Nothing comes to you for free. You're absolutely right.It doesn't have to be a Saab dealer just a shop that has knowledge of them, where in Wisconsin? Put the name of your town in here:
Find a nearby Wisconsin mechanic using Wisconsin’s most comprehensive online directory of independent Saab repair shops. Read shop reviews and information on SaabShops.com.www.saabshops.com
Also, working on cars isn't rocket science, with a basic tool kit and YouTube you can pretty much address most maintenance issues and learn as you go and acquire tools as you go.
What does "I guess that's the way the world works" mean? In my experience the world doesn't do much for you it's up to you if you want to try to fix your car or pay someone else to do it for you for the rest of your life...oh and it's fun too.
