I'm looking for a standard but stainless exhaust system for my 1982 900 Turbo 8V, is anyone aware of anyone making these?
Thanks.
Ian

Might be worth trying the place that supplied and fitted the one to the T8 that I owned for a while when it was in Dave's ownership.

These guys are worth a try as well, pretty sure they cover the whole classic SAAB range.

When I had one fitted to the 99GL I used the local Powerflow agent.

Thanks Mal, I see Dave went for the later layout which I've been tempted with, how did the car sound?

It sounded excellent with a nice burble. But without being too loud.

Dave included a link to a video in this post.

I deleted the centre box on the one I had fitted to the 99GL, with the twin pipes that sounded louder than the one fitted to the T8.
The 99GL popped quite a bit on the overrun.

The one fitted to the T8 was very close to the original sound but with the unmistakable stainless rasp.

I should also know this but will a 16v system fit an 8v car?
