Jak Stoll exhaust from 900 for my 9-3?

Hey guys,

I have an opportunity to buy a Jak Stoll complete exhaust from someone local that includes the 3” DP, race cat and 2 mufflers. The doaner car is a 95 900 but the exhaust was bought in 08. My car is a 02 9-3 SE. My questions are will this fit up ok? I emailed Jak and he said I might have to modify the tailpipe section and also move the rear 02 sensor by unclipping the wire from above the bell housing and dropping it behind the intake manifold. Has anyone tried to do something like this? I’d like to get as much info as possible before deciding to do this. Some questions I have are will this give me any issues since this was in a T5 car and mine is a T7? It sounds like his current setup doesn’t have the o2 sensor after the cat. It has the bung on it but no sensor hooked up. Would this cause any problems? Can a tune fix this?
Any help would be appreciated!

A 95 is OBD I, and doesn't use the downstream O2 sensor.
96 and older is OBD II and requires the sensor.

If the bung is there, just screw your existing sensor into it.

I believe it needs to be the same type of transmission as well, unless JAK made a universal fit downpipe for manual and automatic cars.

Good point....

What do you think the odds would be that it's universal?

I got the downpipe and exhaust installed. Sounds great at idle and isn't annoying when you really get on it. I'm pretty happy. Drove about 10 miles and no CEL.... YET! Lets hope it stays that way! haha

Turbo spools up a lot faster and the MPG on the SID even went up .1 in the short distance I was driving. And I was driving it hard. I'd love to see if it goes up even more.

When I started it this morning I saw a lot of smoke. It looked darker than just cold weather smoke. I noticed last night it smelled pretty rich but seemed to run fine. I'm hoping nothing serious is going on.

Oil? From where? You think the turbo leaked oil into the exhaust?

It's not uncommon and it's certainly possible. Blue smoke on startup is a telltale sign of a failing turbo, or seals needing replacement.

If the PO blew a turbo, it's definitely a possibility. Run it for a week -- especially longer distances at highway speeds -- to see if it clears itself up by burning out of the exhaust system.

If it doesn't go away, and you're still getting the blue smoke at startup, then go to Plan B...
