I have a 2003 Saab 9-5 Arc V6. It's all stock, but I am wondering how I can change the sound, exhaust wise, without spending too much money.

I would like a sound like this

but I understand that this car probably has more done to it than I am wanting to do.

Judging from the video comments... all you need to do is have an exhaust shop remove your middle resonator, and replace it with straight pipe, then install the same Borla muffler that the guy in the video has. Should cost only a couple hundred (including muffler and installation).

It will sound different because you are comparing a 2 liter 4 cylinder against a 3 liter v6, but it's about as close as you can get.

Alarming Sounds!

We now park our cars in a concrete multi story car park at work.

When I start my car I can usually set off at least two of the neighbouring car's alarms with the exhaust sound :p

Mmmm...that does sound rewarding. I can just see Chris starting it an extra couple times...just for effect.

alright thanks,

is there a certain brand of pipe, or is it just a straight pipe that goes through?

also I have a dual outlet tip right now, is it alright to get a single one like these?

and Chris, or any else that has that done, is it worth it to have that done? like do you ever get any noise complaints, and is it not too loud in the car?

Mine is simply the Abbott Racing Stainless 3" system.
