I guess the only problem that might be effecting performance would be the bottle neck effect at the stock muffler because everything else is 3" pipes. Once again, AFAIK, only stock, OE mufflers are alowed for saabs here in Germany. Thats why I have to have the original muffler on the car. Not my choice, just the LAW!

Yea, we live with what we can work with and I was not arguing with you, more the other people that were saying the stock muffler is just fine.

I thought the ferrita was ok since Maptun sells them, what about borela?

Is it just for inspection? Can you run stock for inspection, then bolt up a ferrita or something for the rest of the year or two?

I have to put my stock ecu, full cat dp in and stock fuel injectors to pass emmisions here in my state, Colorado USA. Then after I pass I have two years before it has to be tested again. I then put the big fuel injectors back in the car, the free flow dp and tuned ecu with lots of timing and fuel...

Good luck,

John

Inspection is every 2 years and yes I did just put the stock muffler on only for inspection. I had to buy a new OE muffler this year for inspection because my original was rusted out with holes. It's pretty easy to swap them, 2 bolts and three hangers. I have the Flowmaster muffler welded to a section that matches the pipe fittings so it bolts up just like the stock muffler. I live in a gated neighborhood and the Flowmaster was starting to get me dirty looks by the older people on my block. I think I own the oldest car in my neighborhood. . As for after market mufflers that are allowed for Saab here in Germany, Hirsch has the market cornered all by itself. Damn near 400 Euros just for thier muffler so I can have legal paper work is not worth it to me. I ran the Flowmaster all year anyway but if I wreck on the Autobahn and they do thier manditory inspection of my car, I will get [email protected]#*ed for every aftermarket piece of equiptment that I don't have GERMAN paperwork for. OUCH!
