Default OEM Axle-back on bosal mid-pipe???

I have an 02 wrx with 3" SPT cat-back. I would like to mate my OEM axle-back up to my SPT mid-pipe. I have 2 questions, will I be able to do this? I know the fit wont be optimum but will it work. Also, will I loose that much power or restrict my exhaust too much for stage II? Right now I'm running a conservative economy tune. I'm not really worried about power tight now, just want it to be very driveable and get good gas mileage as I do alot of driving right now. Thanks, Jared

I just did the exact opposite of what you're wanting to do. I bought a used Bosal axle-back and bolted it to my oem midpipe. The holes & everything line up, what you're going to run into is gasket size. I solved my issue by using both a 2.5 & a 3" gasket, both w/ copper gasket sealant on both sides. no leaks at all!! also, if you can't find both gaskets, get a sheet of Mr. Gasket exhaust gasket material for like 10 bux & cut your own out w/ an x-acto knife. That's what I did & have no leaks at all
