its a waste of money to get anything but a 3 inch exhaust if you going for performance. just a muffler will do nothing.


and a hint - use the search function

After you replace the centre muffler with a piece of pipe, be sure to keep the old muffler, just in case you don't like the new noise level.

Centre muffler is a resonator, it will be louder w/o it but have slightly more power. It will 'drone' if driven at speed at a constant velocity, like say 80mph.

Definitely keep your old one until youi are certain you like the new sound.

Any of the 'performance' rear mufflers will give you more noise, though not really any more power.

If you have a standard exhaust, then 2.5" dia mild steel tube I suppose! Otherwise, you want to match whatever you have.

I removed the cat from an old TDI VW I had, and I found a tube manipulation & fabrication shop just around the corner from where I work who made up a pipe for me for very little money (in that case it needed forming to shape). I just gave them the Cat as a pattern to match.

Otherwide, I expect one of the Saab tuners would supply the part, although I would expect that to cost more.

So what do you guys recommend replacing the center silencer with?
Stock Saab one will flow good power. Alternative is 3" JT resonator. Go online to Summitt Racing and they have a whole bunch to choose from, just be careful it is not too loud for comfort.

hi there,

what do you guys think - is it possible to fit an exhaust system like in the image below on a 9000 SAAB? OR are there going to be space problems with the second pipe?

Hello, This is my 9-5. Thank you!

This is my fight flight deck...



From Saab 9-5 Teacher Hsia
Welcome to Saab Central.

Certainly seems a lot of gauges, does look a bit like a flight deck. Do tell us what you are watching on all your gauges. Must have been quite a job to wire it all in!

I have an extra oil temp, boost and exhaust gas temp, could imagine adding oil pressure and fuel/air mixture, but would be puzzled what to add next.

GEEEZE!!!! Just think of trying to monitor that ****pit! In an airplane you don't need to look outside all the time, but in a car???? Sorry officer, I did not see you, I was monitoring my oil temp...:eek:

Does look like a ****pit:cool: I would not have the patience to wire it all up!

In Taiwan, We are matter-of-factly.

In UK, I take on acidulous.

I understood UK's car racing is developed. I envy very much. UK is the advanced countries. Taiwan is inferior to you in something. But cannot reduce me for the saab enthusiasm!

Mr. KevinC , thanks your respect and the care extremely. I am very grateful!



I want to challenge the limit. In Taiwan, Likes saab the people are extremely many. The Taiwan Saab Club member has 9000 people. Browsing people 3,200,000. It is world biggest Chinese language saab discusses website. Holds the meeting regularly.

http://www.saabclub.com.tw/discuss/discuss_a.asp?id1=1



Taiwan's traffic law is very strict. We lack the vehicle racing location. But the auto parts manufacture is extremely developed. Therefore deeply loves the automobile people. Also strives for the government establishes the racing location.



My measuring appliance cannot affect the line of sight. But may grasp the automobile performance comprehensively. Usually I can use the black cloth to cover. Avoids the theft. Also avoids the police inspecting.



Thank you everybody! My English is not good. But your containing, I express the respect!

I suppose you get used to the orientation of the needles for normal operating conditions, and simply glance at them without looking to far from straight ahead. I have stock gages in my Audi that are off my normal line-of-sight that are probably more distracting to read than his are.

And I don't think he cares what John thinks of his set-up. I don't either.

Hsia - Welcome to Saab Central. Thanks for the interest and diversity.
