1993 SC2
Question Exhaust Diverter

I was thinking about ordering an exhaust diverter (one way it goes through the stock exhaust, and other way it's straightpiped). I was wondering what I'd have to do with the cat (I'd like to install it before the cat), and if there's any sort of vacum lines or anything to deal with.

Also- what's an open piped Satty 1.9 DOHC sound like? Hopefully not like a buzzbomb honduh.

My brother and I race a 99 SL2 on a 1/2 mile dirt oval in a 4 cyl class. We have a staight through exhaust that bends out right in front of the passenger side rear tire (nascar style). Anyway the car is VERY loud but it's not a nice sound at all, very buzzy, but it gets the job done for what we use it for.

Dazed

go to team scr's site (I think its www.teamscr.com ) they have a video clips section, you can hear what a almost open exhuast sounds like; I think they have a 3" mandrel-bent pipe w/ no cat and a dynomax race muffler...

get some earplugs and carry a bottle of aspirin. i have heards saturns without mufflers and they were LOUD. an exhuast weld broke on my 92 sc after the cat and it was a headache on the way to the saturn retailer to have it replaced. once on my 96 sc2 the weld broke in front of the muffler which was not quite as bad since the noise was out the back instead of under my feet but loud still. don't do it!!
