Default Will a FM Downpipe and exhaust that was on a 2000 fit on my 95?

Will a downpipe and turbo that came off of a 2000 fit on my 95 NA? I know the turbo outlet will fit but what about the rest? Is there an easy way to make it work?

In my experience the physical dimensions of it will fit without any problem and it will bolt up to the head. However, the downpipe will not mate up to the rest of your exhaust. If you're getting a good deal someone that can weld would be able to make them bolt up pretty easily. You can always pull the exhaust and drive around with an open downpipe if you really need to move the car somewhere.

I'm running the full exhaust (manifold to tip) from my '99 on my '94. I just had to have an exhaust shop move some hangers around to make it work.

Yea my bad there was actually a typo in the original post..it's an FM Downpipe and a FM 2.5 inch exhaust. It came off a 2000 SE.

You have to completely re-do the hangers on the chassis or the exhaust. Not worth it unless its stupid cheap and you can weld.

Alright so besides the hangers it's straightforward and there will be no issues with the downpipe?

Don't worry he knows someone who can weld. Hangers aren't a big deal. Way better and cheaper than fabing an exhaust.
