Complete exhaust system replacement on a 1999 Saab 9-5 (applies to all
four cylinder 9-5 models). The original exhaust rusted through, and is now
replaced with a three inch straight through
system built by Jak
Stoll. It is made of 3" aluminized steel piping and includes a downpipe,
sport catalitic converter, two flex joints, resonator and a rear muffler.
Jak's fabrication quality got better over the years. The welds and transitions
were much smoother than on the
I bought from him a few years ago. Other than his choice of a resonator, I
didn't really have anothing to complain about. The fit was nearly flawless
too. He actually mentioned that he doesn't have a jig for 9-5 exhausts at his
shop. Instead, he gets his mother in-law's Aero up on the lift and makes a
tailored job every time. I suppose this kind of dedication had to pay off ;].
