Default RE: Putting an NP Excess 6.9 on a Kombat 97?

Agree with Ola. A Saber will be more powerfull than an Excess than an Expression :

The Saber is more deeply drafted and has more foot area than either the Excess or Expression. Therefore, a Saber 6.7 might be as powerfull as a 6.9 Excess or a 6.9 Expression.

It also depends a lot on what program do you want to focus on (speed versus manoeuvrability) :
