Default Finding deals on NA parts so question is: NA exhaust fit on NB, how much modding ?

So I am not good with a welder or even own one. I might have friends or a shop lined up.

How much work is it to get and NA DP back exhaust to fit on an NB car?

1 or 2 hours of professional shop work?

Any new bends or piping needed?

I did search but found nothing concrete.

I don't think that it would be bad for the downpipe. The guy that I got my Begi DP from thought it was for an NA when he bought it but it was an NB DP. He tried to make it fit, opened the bolt holes and said it was close but no-go so he sold it. I'd think someone with a clue could mod an NA DP to work. I had to mod it anyway as I built my own manifold but it wasn't bad. Couple of cuts on the DP and reweld. So, yeah, I think a shop could mod a NA DP in 1-2 hours.

I sold my cat back to a guy on this site who has an NB and it came off my NA and he said it took very little modification to get to fit. I held it under the car on a lift when he came to pick it up and it only needed to have the hangers moved and a little extra bend in the back after the rear.
