My attempt at recording what an Abbott Racing 3" Exhaust sounds like on a 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen. You hear the car start up, then the video switches to a bumper mounted angle for some real road audio.
It is the full 3" system from the turbo back.
Poor tools make for a fairly mediocre recording job unfortunately. Shot using a Sony Cyber-Shot digital camera combined with an Apple iPhone with suction mount attached to the bumper..... doesn't really make for a good quality audio recording. The iPhone just cannot handle the brutality :-)
Enjoy... the best I can do for now.

Swedens Saab Gripen NG JAS 39 fighter jet SHOOTS DOWN a Russian Sukhoi Su-35 in Marketing video
The Saab JAS 39 Gripen (griffin) is a lightweight single-engine multirole
fighter manufactured by the Swedish aerospace company Saab. It was designed
to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen in the Swedish Air Force
(Flygvapnet). The Gripen has a delta wing and canard configuration with
relaxed stability design and fly-by-wire technology. It is powered by the
Volvo-Flygmotor RM12 engine, a derivative of the General Electric F404, and
has a top speed of Mach 2. Later aircraft are equipped for in-flight
refuelling; most of the export aircraft have been designed to be compatible
with NATO interoperability standards.
In 1979, the Swedish government began development studies for an aircraft
capable of fighter, attack and reconnaissance missions to replace the Saab
35 Draken and 37 Viggen. A new design from Saab was selected and developed
as the JAS 39, first flying in 1988. Following two crashes during flight
development and subsequent alterations to the aircraft's flight control
software, the Gripen entered service with the Swedish Air Force in 1997.
Upgraded variants, featuring more advanced avionics and adaptions for
longer mission times, began entering service from 2003 onwards.
The Swedish Air Force (Swedish: Flygvapnet) is the air force branch of the
Swedish Armed Forces.
The Swedish Air Force was created on July 1, 1926 when the aircraft units
of the Army and Navy were merged. Because of the escalating international
tension during the 1930s the Air Force was reorganized and expanded from
four to seven squadrons. When World War II broke out in 1939 further
expansion was initiated and this substantial expansion was not finished
until the end of the war. Although Sweden never entered the war, a large
air force was considered necessary to ward off the threat of invasion and
to resist pressure through military threats from the great powers. By 1945
the Swedish Air Force had over 800 combat-ready aircraft, including 15
Sweden (Listeni/ˈswiːdən/ swee-dən; Swedish: Sverige [ˈsværjɛ] (

Konungariket Sverige (help·info)), is a Scandinavian country in Northern
Europe. Sweden borders Norway and Finland, and is connected to Denmark by a
bridge-tunnel across the Øresund.
At 450,295 square kilometres (173,860 sq mi), Sweden is the third-largest
country in the European Union by area, with a total population of about 9.5
million. Sweden has a low population density of 21 inhabitants per
square kilometre (54 /sq mi) with the population mostly concentrated to the
southern half of the country. About 85% of the population live in urban
areas. Sweden's capital city is Stockholm, which is also the largest
city. Since the early 19th century Sweden has been at peace and has avoided
~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has
limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted.
But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a
lot faster between 0-150kmh, but
these Saabs are faster from
150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line.
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses
traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and
then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three
gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th
gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone
changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile
race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any
incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please
see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min.
