Back to the 08+ WRX exhaust fitment on the 5th gen legacy real quick. I have a 2.5i and one of the many who like the dual exhaust look and someone on Craigslist is selling their OEM 08-10 WRX catback for cheap and wanted to clarify what fits.

I know that muffler hangers will need to be welded to the passenger side and that the legacy is a longer car than the WRX but can I use the entire cat-back? I suppose you could salvage the Y-pipe to fit my mid-pipe and bolt the wrx axle-back to it. There doesn't seem to be a flange connecting the wrx mid-pipe to the wrx Y-pipe for an easy swap onto mine. What do you think? If anyone has a thread for this exact swap let me know since I couldn't find one.
