i Have an 07 9-3 2.0T FWD, currently the stock set up is 2 catalytic converters, but only the cat directly after the turbo is monitored. Is it possible to replace the second cat with a whole new set up for a 9-3 without the second cat?
This is the actual part,the second cat. picture from e Saab parts. I can’t get a pic of it on the car for a day or two, but trust me, I have 12 years experience fixing cars and 3 ASE certifications. It had 2 cats. I’d like to switch the system to the single cat set up like on the other 9-3’s. I’m trying to find out if the hangers will be in the right places, I’m sure it will line up ok regardless, but I’m wondering if I’ll have to weld in new hangers or anything like that.
I’m gonna be changing the first cat, I have a code, is there a different cat I can buy so I can put the non California exhaust on my car? Or maybe even just a cat-back exhaust for when I replace the first cat?
I bought a Borla front cat, their made by Magnaflow. It is patterned on a two cat system, my car was a single cat car and by the time I figured out what I had it was beyond the return date. I ended up getting a second cat pipe and adding that to the car, If I were to do it again I would have just bought a Krona down pipe with cat and been done with it.Krona makes full exhaust systems for these cars,pricey but what isn't these days.
