It looks like you're wishing for array jobs. From qsub(1):

      -t n[-m[:s]]
              Submits a so called Array Job, i.e. an array of identical
tasks being differentiated only by an index number and being treated by Grid
              Engine almost like a series of jobs.

Perhaps your shell script would resemble the following:



if [ -n "$SGE_TASK_ID" ]; then
  $exename -par$SGE_TASK_ID > $outpath$SGE_TASK_ID
  $exename -par_default > $outpath-default
