Default Exhaust fitment issues

I am about to purchase a axle back from a friend of mine. I currently have a Greddy EVO II catback on my 98 RS. I am looking at this Stromung axle back. All of the hangers look right to me but it think the flang would need to be rotated. Am i right?
Heres mine now

You have one advantage of switching....the Stromung is stainless steel. I had a Greddy on my Civic and it rusted apart in a matter of two years.

Sorry, but GReddy EVO2 should be completely SS made, correct?

You can tell by the pictures he posted that it is not.

So this axle back is for a wrx/sti. im thinking that its just going to take to much to make it work. so its not worth it.

im not sure of the years of each axleback that you have. but if everything else fits and its just a flange issue you can just rotate it!

i have a scoobysport axleback made for an 02 wrx on my 02 rs. i just had to rotate the flange. Any muffler shop can do this. very simple.

either rotate the flange on your midpipe, or rotate the flange on the axleback. I would say do it on the midpipe in case you ever decide to sell the axleback.

Ok so if i use the midpipe that came with the Greddy system i just need to rotate the flange. I just need to get the axel back and put it in there to see if it fits. I just dont want to waste my money on something that wont fit.

yes..
and if the piping diameter is Too different and even after you rotate the flange it doesnt line up (because the flanges arent the same size). you can just hack off about 8 inches of the midpipe, weld on the correct piping size,flange and bolt em together!
