Yes, and I did try to say as much, the flange is identical, but the pipes are rotated, so a couple additional cuts and rotate the pipes the right way around, weld it back together and everything fits well and sounds meaner than stock.
Because they rotated the cat on the Turbo it doesn't bolt up directly without cutting and rotating the pipes, but any actual exhaust shop should be able to fix this.
Very short sound clip of the system installed, although if anything that was quieter in the video than it actually is when revved up.
PoonRacing sold his stock catback, and I took the risk that I could make it work. For $180 for the parts alone it was worth it given even the least expensive magnaflow hatch catback for the n/a is closer to $500 just in parts.
This setup cost maybe $350 installed including the tank of gas and tolls to pick it up, and delivers more like the FSWERKS stealth minus the chambered vs straight through muffler/ resonator design.
