Did NG900's come with a exhaust manifold cover? (pic)

I've seen a few engine bay shots with a plastic cover. I was wondering if this was custom fabricated (looks to be) to fit with the custom air intakes they are with. I think it would look a lot better than my rusty headers, lol. I was just worried it may get a little hot, so I would almost think it needs to be metal.

and here are the pics..

I may steal come summer time.

This one looks to be on a different model, 9-5 may be? (still learning my saabs).

Yes, it's a stock aluminum cover that's has been repainted, probably with hi-temp brake caliper paint.

Oh okay. And are they worth much/cost anything? I'd like to grab one and cover my manifold. I cant seem to find much info or for sale anywhere.

My '96 and '97 ng900's didn't come with one. The exhaust manifold didn't have the stud built into it either. My '98 and 9-3 did though.

The first one isn't too hard to come by, but the tabs are sometimes broken. Look for someone parting out a car. You need one from an NG900, not a 9-3. You could retrofit the exhaust cover to an NG900, they never came with them. later 9-3's also came with a plastic battery box you could paint up if interested.

So they did or didn't come with them? I am hearing mixed opinions. Mike, I'll pay the shipping and get rid of that cludder for ya if your not needing it
I'm sure I could fab one up with some tin I have laying about, but if they came with one that is pre-bent with smooth curves it will look quite a bit better.

Realistically all it needs to do is to clip to the exhausts manifold studs. Saab decided it also bolted on the end of the exhaust manifold right above the turbo, hince the hole about midway up the shield.

I am about 90% positive these only came on the '98 ng900 (seeing as it was pretty much a 9-3) and the og9-3's.

My '96 and '97 never had it, or the stud on the exhaust manifold where te shield would bolt to. My '98 ng900 and '99 9-3 did and had the shield

The earlier NG900s don't have the stud for the front of the shield to bolt onto, but they do have the protrusion on the exhaust manifold where the stud would go. The cast iron manifold is very easy to drill into. I drilled mine and tapped it for an 8mm stud so the 9-3 manifold shield I have fits like it should. I had it just clipped onto the exhaust studs for a while, but I always thought it rattled a little bit.
