Exhaust Systems: Sedan vs. Wagon

What are the differences between the exhaust systems on the sedan and wagon? Do they share any of the same pieces?

I purchased a Gary Fisher wagon over the summer that had some rust the previous owner never divulged. So I will soon need to replace the entire exhaust system.

Also, does any one have a picture of the wagon's exhaust? I put mine up on the lift and noticed it was welded from front to back. There were no clamps holding sections together like on my 9-3.

If anyone could help me with any of this is would be greatly appreciated!

They're the same between wagon and sedan. They should also be sectioned just like the 9-3, too. You can buy any OE or performance exhaust, and It'll bolt right up.

Bummer yours is welded. It sort of means you'll have to pay someone labor to replace the sections, or buy a whole new setup and do it yourself. That being said, the saab exhausts are REALLY easy to swap.

I think krona/BCB sell a nice/affordable performance exhaust, now.

Thank you for that! I felt pretty stupid driving away without saying anything about the sound it was making, something was obviously up.

I already have a downpipe I was hoping of swapping in for the section that rusted completely through but since it is welded, it all needs to go! So if any one knows of a stock exhaust for sale, I would be interested!

If the wagon one is good, cut it in one or two places and sleeve it. Get a slightly larger piece of pipe and slide the two pieces into it and clamp or weld. Plan B would be to cut it and bring it to someone and have them weld it. If its a guy that is in the exhaust business, shouldn't be more than an hour or two to put it in. Both wagon and sedan exhausts are fairly easy to put in, both can be done using jackstands or front ramps.

I wish it was good! Way too much rust. Rusted through the intermediate pipe and the muffler is done for.

My 9-5 sedan does have an OBX cat back exhaust, it seems to work ok and reasonable price and fit.
