I recently replaced the motor in my 95 3.8 with one out of a 93 and everything lined up and bolted up fine except the exhaust. The passenger side cat wants to hit against the body and not bolt up flush/tight to the manifold. Is there a difference in the manifolds or exhaust set up in the two years? I used the 93 manifolds since they were already bolted on to the motor, if needed i might replace them with the others. Any help would be great, i just had to go thru inspection and I told dude i would take care of it asap since it played deaf to the leak. :D Worse come to worse I will just do a full custom exhaust.

The angle of the collector on the manifold changed, which necessitated a change in the angle of the downtube to mate up to it.

Basically, if you're still running your stock 95 y-pipe, you'll need to switch the passenger side '93 exhaust manifold out for the '95 piece from your old engine.

Did the angle change again with the tube exhaust manifolds on the 96-97 engines or is it the same?

I'm going to be puting '96 exhaust manifolds on my '92 so I'm trying to figure out what all I will need to modify.

Would this be fairly simple to fab up? SCP has down tubes but at $349 for a pair with cats is way more than I want to pay.
