22/01/2006 06:16:12   Gary   Hi all... I wish to know the sound level of the Jetex exhaust compared to the stock.I Is it a low mellow "oozing sound or a harsh raw sound? I do not wish for a very noisy exhaust, and it is very difficult to buy an OEM system here in the states. One of the facts I do not care for of the Jetex is the huge boy racer chrome tailpipe end.

Thanks for any help

Ian Meakin in the UK used some off a Renault Clio (which I doubt is sold in the US). You might want to shop around at your local exhaust supplier when you get the Jetex to find some stronger rubbers.

Either buy it from Rolf of the Swedish Saabclub or go to and put your question on the 92-96 bb. Quite likely you'll get info where to buy a Simons in the state or something equivalent (MSS for instance).
