I need an exhaust for a new to me c900.

I wanted Genuine SAAB for the SAAB c900 burble but they are NLA.

Besides Starla/Walker ... What is there? Does anyone still do performance stuff. What have you c900 guys done?

Bennington Muffler put a custom stainless system with a Borla muffler on my son's Comm Ed. Big improvement in performance and sound. Nice burble, loud but not offensive. They are probably not too far from you to get it done. Unfortunately they sold their mandrel bender a few years back.

So thus far the consensus is that for C900 performance exhausts there is basically nothing, leaving custom.

Excellent. This should be fun. I'm a mediocre welder at best, but have access to a mandrel tubing bender at a friendly local shop

Can I get a Carlsson replica tip anywhere you guys know of?

Love the sound in those clips.

I have Skandix Sport single tip on my turbo. Looks like they are out of stock, but e-mail them and see what the availability is. I have heard these is actually a Simmons system made in Germany.

Zach,

Where'd he get that tailpipe.

So exciting hearing that. I never 'got' the C900-thing til I got one.

Sent Skandix an email. Never heard of them before... This is why I ask... I know nothing of real SAABs.

That exhaust tip is now discontinued. But it was made by Vibrant.

Either way, the tip is not what makes the noise, the magnaflow and 3" is ;). The tip does change the sound slightly, but not a whole lot.

Example, this is DanF's SPG without a tip, but similar setup.

I know the tip doesnt make the noise :rolleyes: hahaa

I just liked it. hahaahaa

Not sure whether to go 'original' or do my normal performance thing. Leaning towards "reversible performance"
I would honestly do a custom setup... It'll cost about the same (if not less, depending on where you go) and I honestly think they sound better.

And the tip does change the sound slightly due to the shape changing and the fact that it was resonated. I have heard tips change exhausts by quite a bit before. ;)

Just let the intermediate pipe after the cat rust off.

Thats what I did, now I can't hear or feel anything any more :)
