Of the cheapies, I had good luck with magnaflo. I had a frustrating time with Bosal - the unit supplied at the time (this was probably a decade ago though now, so they may have changed) was quite wide such that it was really hard to align in a way that would not rattle against the heat shield. They all have their own small heat shield, but I would strongly suggest fixing or replacing the one you have.
IIRC the SAAB original heat shields were NLA, but you could probably fabricate something to repair the one you have or make a suitable replacement. Proper installation of the original heat shield involves accessing a screw buried under the center console so it involves significant interior removal. Not at all well thought out imho!! Some people weld a nut on there so they can change from below in the future (so maybe if you got this second hand, check for that first). Not addressing a rusted out heat shield adequately can result in melted wiring in the center console area and a much bigger kettle of fish! Basically, it's a safety issue, so fix it.
