Thanks.

The hangers are different.

Flange that mates up with the cat will also be off 30 degrees or so. So in addition to changing the hangers, you'd have to cut and re-weld the flange.

How big is the piping?

If all it is is a flange that needs rotation and some new and/or modded hangers, just take it and the car to any muffler shop.

Lol let's keep this going. I'm going to be putting an oem msm on my n/a 94 na miata, I am under the impression that I can just add a few hangers and it will fit and bolt up to my cat. I am only getting the 2 rear sections not the dp

it's much more than the hangers. CAT won't line up/bolt up, exhaust route won't work.

Actually we did have to make a hanger spot under the trunk, and make additions to the stock msm hangers and cut and re angle the 2 bolt flange for it to work. But definitely not that bad. Also the msm exhaust made more power and tq from my butt dyno than my old 2.5 magnaflow /resonator made.... Plus no drone on the highway and decent stockish sound. Plus when I go turbo it will be the perfect sound just like oem quiet :-)

You need an NB header and DP for a NB catback to fit. Basically you need an entire NB exhaust to use any part of an NB exhaust.
