Does your downpipe have the mount on it for it to be bolted up to the bracket back there before the cat? ie, like the one pictured:
Also, do you have the stock JDM downpipe that you could do a test fit with to make sure it is indeed in your car correctly?
I think some bending or cutting would do the trick. Unless you can make some $ by selling your current DP, i don't think you should look at buying a new DP.
