Downpipe measurements for a 1998 NG900 SE Turbo

Hey all.

So, my plan is to have a downpipe made for my NG900. Its through a friend of a local Saab guy and he needs to know the following. Length, Bends, and Diameter.

I know that it is better to have Mandrel Bends rather than Crush Bent. the rest, I'm absolutely clueless. any and all help is greatly appreciated.

NOTE : I plan to have a Catalytic Converter with this downpipe, as per Maryland State Emission laws.


Thanks in advance!

Seems like it'd be easier to just bring the car in if its just gonna be made that way. I really don't think its gonna be worth it because you probably can't do that with 3" pipe and it frankly just isn't gonna be pretty.

b-series driver's side downpipe (meaning the downpipe curves towards the drives side not the passenger's side)
