I mentioned before i put my 3" downpipe on yesterday. I have the saab sport exhaust with it 2.5". I was wondering if anyone new a better way to connect the midpipe/adapter to the muffler. The adapter they gave me is the nuckle style. I have a nuckle clamp but it doesnt seem to work real well and i have a large exhaust leak!! could someone please give me some advice on what to do.. Im trying to sell my current saabsport catback so i can get the matching 3". BUt i need a fix for now untill i am able to get that sooo if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks Nick

Tanner, although you have the downpipe and the mid pipe, your still missing some important bends as well as the muffler. I may have been better to order the whole 3" exhaust together.

Look at the diagram below. If you have the downpipe, and mid pipe, that only parts 1 and 3. Your still missing 5 and 6 (the muffler).

The advantages to buying everything together is it saves you about $100, rather than buying the parts individually.

Take it to an exhuast shop and have them find and seal the leak. That'll be a lot less than buying a whole new system.

If you want, Ill drive up there Saturday and help ya out. Do you have a brand new exhaust clamp? With our cars next to each other We can see if something odd is going on noise wise with yours. I have an identical set up and dont consider it loud. I have been pulled over numerous times and the cops haven't noticed a thing.

Ced, He has a Saabsport Cat back on the car.

Tanner. You live near Rochester? I can swing up Sat. Do you have jacks and tools? I can bring some stuff up. Just get a new exhaust clamp unless urs is good.

Yea he has a SaabSport 2.5" cat back, but he has a 3" JT downpipe. He's looking to upgrade to a full 3". Until then...I think he wants to fix his catback leakage.

I may be wrong tho.

Tanner, do you have AIM...maybe I can help some.

Also Tweek's CEL wouldn't come on because his car is a 94, which only comes with one o2 sensor before the cat.

If you haven't got a CEL light yet...you most likely won't get one ;)

I have a 95, but glad to hear you got it figured out. I wanna make sure if I ever suggest mods, people are happy with what they get.

Keep it the way you have it, unless you get a cel or something. Just watch out now for state inspections as you'll need to know somebody. :wink:
