Cat-back exhaust

Ok guys here's the deal. I have a 3 inch dp with a race cat on the way thanks to snow4_1man...I am looking for a cat back now. Cheapest new saabsport i've found is $360. I spoke to a guy and he said he could do one for $250 in aluminzed steel...Good price or no? Any suggestions/opinions? Oh and I think if my bro can come up with the money he's going to buy me a stage 3 or 4...Don't think he's the greatest bro alive. He owes me for half of the system that was in his car. Thanks

If your going to have an exhaust made it better be 3 inch and in stainless. 5 to 7 years down the road that aluminised steel is gonna be rusting out. Maybe faster since your in the NE.

No, cole muffler will not do any custom fabbing, said it would cost too much and it wouldn't be worth it. And He is part of the reason why I am parting it out. The timing chain snapped so thats the real reason, but my brother did fuck up the 1st and 2nd gear syncros so it was a bitch to drive around town!

This is the reason why I wanted a saabsport, but I can't find a used one cheap enough. And they are few and far in between. Also, no one seems to work with stainless steel..People say its harder to work with?

I mean I kind of didn't want to replace the exhaust and I do live in a place where they salt the hell out of the roads. But $250 is very tempting especially for a 3 inch. I still am partial to a saab sport thought... I think I have a pic of his work....



Now that you see his work and the price...what you guys think? Also If anyone has any contacts of anyone who has a saabsport for sale or knows of a saabsport for sale I would highly appreciate it! Thanks
