I mostly just ballparked and over ordered, I don't know exactly what is needed.

Damn Saab95Aero, those welds are hard on the eyes!

Here's mine:

Glad to see someone caught the pun!

Update, I still haven't gotten my exhaust leak fixed, but I think it's starting to get louder, which isn't good. So I'm back on the hunt for some pipes. I want to do turbo back, and that Krona turbo back someone suggested looks pretty nice, and doesn't sound half bad either, though I don't like those dual tips, nor do I like that I need to add $100 so they can adjust the hangers to fit my model year. I also don't want to trim the bumper at all.
I live in Florida, so I don't need a cat, which is sweet.
I just want something to bolt right up, from turbo to bumper, with no extra effort required. Is that too much to ask for?

I think I will be down for a cat back. Curious to hear yours SAABEH when it's done. I really don't want anything loud at all.

I've had it on my car for almost a year now and it's still perfect. They added one of my youtube videos of my car to their site.. check it out. Sounds so clean..

Good call, thanks for the heads up. He's only 40 minutes from me. I've been following your "Bought a 2000 Aero" thread closely, I'll give them a call today to see if they can check it out.

The turbo back JT used to be that much from GS, but I think it went up. However that did not include a cat.

BuHuSPG No, not for a turbo back. Your price range offers plenty of cat-back options though!
