Default WRX midpipe on TS

Well, I am picking up a free WRX exhaust tonight.

Now I need a midpipe, of course!

My (n00b-ass) question is this:

I have seen that a bunch of people have WRX midpipes on their 2.5's. If I recall, the WRX has the 3rd cat in the midpipe, correct? Can I take the cat out somehow (I assume that would be highly beneficial)?

Also, if the stock pipe is 1.75 and the WRX is 2.25, how does that mate up? Overlapping flanges?

I am REALLY on a budget. Is it worth it to put the WRX pipe on there, or should I save up and try to get a custom pipe?

Thanks for any advice.

you know it's not gonna bolt up without doing a few things right?

here's a wrx setup

the wrx turboback is in 4 pieces
you won't be using the downpipe or midpipe
you will be using the other 2 pieces but only after you get the flange rotated so the holes in the flanges line up so they can be bolted together

you might just want to spend about $100 and get a custom midpipe made, prolly about the same price as getting the flange rotated

Yeah, I could probably get a midpipe for free, but I was quoted $70 to have a custom one made. Not too bad. It probably would be $50 or so to reweld the muffler hangar and rotate the flange.

Thanks for the link, great diagram.
