If it does, there is a thread to show you how to fix it. It's easy and will take 20minutes or less.

I bought that set-up second hand. I tried every ratchet, universal, and wobble socket I had and couldn't get all the manifold bolts on. I ended up just going with the downpipe. The previous owner did have it installed. I could see the msrks from the manifold bolts. If you do buy it and get it installed, let me know how you did it. You will get a CEL, it's not a cat converter. Just a honeycombed pipe. I have a cheater to keep the light off.
