You could cut and weld an make them work but if smog checks are an issue it would not be smog legal.

So if I just tried bolting the manifolds on back to the 3.0 it wouldn’t have the same bolt pattern? The only difference I really see is bank one cat is located differently and the circumference of the cats are a little larger. I guess I’m grasping!
