SaabSport - Sounds Amazing!!

Just got done installing the SaabSport on my dads 9-3SE. It sounds good. Only concern I have is the section before the rear muffler wont come together all the way, also, no sealant was used on the SaabSport. Pics coming soon.

lightly sand the two mounting faces (inside of the flared end, outside of the smaller end). Enventually they'll fit.

Also, you need a clamp there to keep them together.

Would a used stock clamp be fine?

I'd suggest getting a stainless clamp, the non stainless ones rust and seize up within a few months. The stainless one on my Aero looks brand new after 3 winters.

the must: make sure you adjust this part of exhaust in a way that it won't make any noise during driving. i've hammered mine in to make it fit and it was little harder to hammer it back (torch heating, taking apart, grinding, putting back on).

i had my saabsport with double rectangle tip on my 900se but it didnt sound as nice as it does on my viggen.

I have that same exhaust, with the very same tip on my 900. With the exception of the new leak somewhere up front, the thing sounds spectacular. Loud, but not overwhelmingly. Just loud enough to garner some attention.

I stood on the pipe coming from the downpipe that joins to the pipe going to the rear muffler and just used my body weight while twisting the second half to get it to go together all the way.

I've got one on my 900 as well (w/o tip) and its quite loud. So loud in fact that the unmarked cop car that stopped me for speeding back in May gave me a ticket for the exhaust instead

Yes, of course there is a downpipe.

No, I didn't appeal or complain. I'd rather pay the muffler ticket then get the big speeding ticket & speed not reasonable and prudent he was going to give me.

I just got done installing mine this past weekend and it sounds awesome. I love it. I used high-temp RTV red silicone to seal mine up (thanks for the suggestion Nick). I also hit mine with a coat of black hi-temp paint for some extra rust protection. Now I just need to pick up a tip for it...

You can run the saabsport minus the tip on a ng900. Nice and stealthy

You might consider a stainless steel BAND clamp as it won't crush the pipe making it easier to disassemble in the future if need be.
