Which Exhaust Would be Better ?

Im wondering what exhaust would be better for a 2002 9-5 Linear, the differences between them etc...

The one sold on Genuine Saab. http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/p...30742dbe7f07c6



The one sold directly from Saab.

Personally, I would go with the one with the closest support, ya know?

I mean, it's just an exhaust..but being close to the place that makes it does not hurt...

I just threw an OEM Replacement 9-5 Exhaust on my 2001 9-5 after mine rusted at the Stainless steel brackets and started dragging on the ground. I put the exhaust on and threw an old chrome 900 series circular tip that I had lying around on it. Looks pretty good. I'm happy with it. Plus the replacement part is guaranteed for life.

Third vote for the BSR...I put one on my Aero this winter when the stock exhaust fell apart.

For the price it's hard to beat.

2.5 inches or 3? CTI makes a very nice 3" version in all stainless. The BSR version is made of stainless and aluminized steel, not bad for the price. You could probably get a SS 2.5in version custom built at a local exhaust shop for maybe 75 bucks more.


edit: just noticed your location, CTI is in your neck of the woods, go talk to Willy.

2.5" will suit you just fine. Even if you decide to go for power there are guys running 2.5" catback on a 3" DP putting down VERY nice #'s. Bang for the buck is what I would be after.

Agreed. But people like to have options. I think Nick put down close to 400 ponies with a 3in DP and the stock 2 3/8 tubing(might have been 2 1/2, but it definitely wasn't 3")with his Viggen
