Stalker The first o2 sensor is right before my flex and cat, then the second is right after the cat. Err my stock dp(and rest of exhaust) is already in the basement behind a bunch of stuff...

SPATL Good looking stuff stalker...
My MP DP should be on soon. I have the abbott catless 2.5" Dp and the MP 3" DP in my garage right now and am amazed at the difference in size the 1/2" makes.

intersing where the O2 sensors are located on you new DP. Were they in the same spot on you stock one? My front O2 sensor is right off the turbo on top of the DP and the second right after the cat. Maybe that was the mid year production change?

Anyway nice stuff.

see what I mean?

I can say I belive in this and that, or I like this and that, without being negative and insulting to the opposing view.
you can't drive stick, can you? :P

Q-SAAB Actually, abdukted, I wasn't intending to label anyone who drives an auto as anything - that comment was more aimed at the tiptronic drivers who think they have a "stick" - don't take it so personally.

DeLorean I don't know about that... IMO, most people who buy autos simply can't drive stick. Personally I have no problem driving a good automatic transmission but I will always have a strong preference to the manual transmission. I just like doing things myself and not having some hydraulic valve body or a computer control when I shift.

As long as you know how to use it, you will ALWAYS have more control over a 5 speed car Vs an auto. Yes, even those fancy paddle shifted ones. Itís the clutch that really gives the extra control.

Automatic 9-5 tranny's can be iffy... they aren't necessarily the most reliable automatic tranny's out there. But I will always stick to manual tranny's no matter what... I dont care if autos are better for drag times or citys..... I think my leg can handle the clutch in heavy traffic.... It's not that much work. lol .... everyone has their own opinion. I just don't feel like I am in that much control driving an automatic. It's all a matter of choice I suppose.

PaulH oh but for the record, if i were to buy a newer saab with the intent to mod it, it would be a standard but thats just personal preference.

Q-SAAB I always found it ridiculous that sports cars could even be purchased with an auto tranny, not to mention that "muscle" cars are almost exclusivelly automatic - when was the last time you saw a camaro with a stick that didn't have to be special ordered?

I've driven the tip-tronic type cars and as far as I'm concerned it's just for people who are too lazy or uncoordinated to use a clutch.

Yes, I know that some auto tranny's are as fast as a manual - that's not the point - Auto tranny's are for point-and-shoot cruising and manuals are for DRIVING.

Besides, if you can't hear the rumble of a sporty exhaust as you downshift you're missing part of the experience.
