Exhaust advice needed '99 9-3 SE Turbo

Looking to find a generic muffler (rear) replacement for the $$$$ original type, anybody done this successfully? Need to put car together to sell, so don't want to spend a lot.

If you can get measurements for it, just go online and find one that is the same dimensions. Summit or Jegs would have what you need. You could also call places like NAPA or other stores.

You may have some luck getting a section at a junkyard too.

Tried the junkyards... so far have only found: junk.

Wanting to know if anyone has actually used an aftermarket muffler successfully on a OG 9-3, and what it was they used.

Yeah, probably tough to find one used in VT!

I have not done it on a saab, but have done it on other vehicles. Very simple process of matching the size and clamping or welding it on.

Yes used a summit racing generic muffler and had to add straight pipes before to tie in and a pipe out the back of the car. Custom hangers to hold it up.
