I apologise in advance for a stupid question but can I ask, why couldn't you just bolt it right on? Whats the need for the adapter? Sorry for stupid question I'm new to exhausts and such.

I had a GD (2002-2007) catback from my brother and when I tried to match it up with my GC, the part where it bolts in the catalytic converter on my GC (2.5RS Coupe) was not matching up, that's why the OP (original poster) mentioned you'd have to rotate the flange. If you try to rotate the whole catback assembly to match the catalytic converter flange, the bends won't line up with the undercarriage.

Ahhhh right ! that makes alot more sense now, i though OP was just doing it for length so I didn't think it was necessary but I understand now. Im guessing this is like this for all catbacks? Thanks heaps!

Man I need one of these. I feel like an exhaust shop around me is going to charge a lot more than I want to pay
